This is a project for a set of vambraces
in 16ga. 304 stainless steel.
This order is for Andrew C.

This page is depicting this project as we go.

This is the basic design, this vambrace is alone standing with the edges turned out, like high level Italian armor.
The front opening will be in a 30 degree angle for better hand mobility.
-April, 18 2011-
The pattern on the steel and the cutting out process.
-April, 19 2011-
Rolling the edges.
This is very time consuming and you can't rush this.
-April, 20 2011-
Rolling the edges of the second top.
. .
-April, 21 2011-
Needed to design a new hinge. This is like a machined hinge, it can not bend open.
-April, 24 2011-
The basic hinges cut out.
A good view of the roll, this will stop the blade going beyond this point.
-April, 25 2011-
Four out of six hinges are done.
Rolled the bottom front of the vambrace, it's getting close to the end.
-April, 26 2011-
Finished the last hinge.
. .
-April, 27 2011-
This is the general idea.
This is almost done, need to fine tune the parts and then the clean-up.
-May 1, 2011-
The End.
