    How long does it take to weave scalemail (large scales)

    I made one from TRL's kits (with jump rings - not my choice) for a friend... I did it in less then 100 hours. He would like me to make another one with split rings this time, and I plan on taking a lot longer to do it, then again, I will have longer then a week to work on it. I had originally built it with just 5 days to complete it for he wanted it for a LARP, but with that kind of rush, mistakes happened... It took another 20 hours to repair and finalize the armour and with that, I would call it at 120 hours for me to do it with jump rings.
  6. Well, armour is fun to make... but I really need to make more of it? YES!

    One heck of a purse

    Thanks, guys! Too bad the guy who commissioned it has not contacted me... He is normally really good at paying... I am thinking I will have to put a price tag on it... I hope not, though,

    One heck of a purse

    So, I had a commission for a purse... The guy wanted something very special for his wife... This is made with 1.2 mm wire, with and ID of 3/16". The strap is Dragonback, same ring size. Took around 60 hours to complete. It weighs under a pound. Image will not load... so here's a link to it https://www.facebook.com/gordiannous/media_set?set=a.10152108475994336.1073741827.514964335&type=3

    Clear + Black Polycarbonate Scales

    So... is that a yay or nay? I think it's a two way street. Try it, but remember they are plastic. Thanks!

    One heck of a purse

    The wife put her wallet in, for a realism effect. Oh... I should totally inform people that in my absence, I had another baby (well, the wife did) and we got married.

    Maille purse.

    Clear + Black Polycarbonate Scales

    I wonder... would these things take a hit? How durable are they? I know I can use them for cosplay items, and I know they are not combat grade by far, but would they take some kind of force to really damage them? I have kids, and I want to make sure that everything will be okay with them before getting my three year old to 'quality control' them.
  18. What a busy season! Finally I am back after a somewhat long absence. And yes, I did miss you all!

    A Few Good Books

    So i went and searched the forums for books. I was looking for a discussion about some great works that we as a community may have read. I went back to 2008, and if there is one deeper, I see no sense in digging up a pile of bones. So here starts my list that will end up being forever long, so I am leaving out the obvious (Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia). One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey Hitch Hiker's Trilogy by Douglas Adams Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood The Road by Comack McCarthy Dreamcatcher by Stephen King (Broke thought: WTF?! They've been turned into movies!) The Giver by Lois Lowry More to come later (I am sure of it, considering it is 5 am and I am just going to bed. What a life I lead)

    Baseball (MLB)

    So I was reading the paper the other day, and much to my surprise, Toronto is Vegas's favorite already to win the World Series. I also took a look at Boston Red Socks, and they have more odds of winning the Stanley Cup than anything. Now see, there is just one issue I have with baseball this year coming - chemistry. People who play together on the field/ice need chemistry in order to play effectively. The Blue Jays have a new team - almost half the roster! Sure, we have Dickey, the NL Cy Young winner from last year, but let me ask you all why did the Mets dump him? I mean, seriously, are the Mets trying to ditch their pitching??

    Mimic... We're now half way (over actually) through the season... This is not the year of the Jay... Maybe next year, if we stay healthy.

    Need advice for a chainmail shirt

    Ummm, that is pretty fine... I just finished a European 4-1 3/8 and it took quite a while (about a week and a half0... As far as the tiny rings you are using, I would recommend something a bit less fine. Say 16 gauge, 1/4. It will have the flexibility and will still look awesome.
