    Stainless Steel - Black and Plain

    i see the restock of blackened stainless didn't include any 18ga - in fact, all the sizes but 3/16" have been removed from the page. am i to assume no other sizes will be available for the indefinite future? (i only need one bag of SB1814, and not for a few months.)

    On tapering existing sleeves.

    the weave is running the other way on the sleeves, so while Kittensoft_Chainmail's technique would work on the body, it won't on the arms. you'll need to do "hole row contractions" as described about halfway down the page here: https://web.archive.org/web/20160508055350/http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm. they contract faster, so you'll probably only need one every couple of rows - i'd probably do it on the underside of the arm so to be less noticeable i also don't think you need to deconstruct the entire arms to do this, since you're removing links. you can just remove links one at a time in each row vertically along the arms, to make a slit, and then when you get to the elbow, make your first contraction, then work your way down the arms removing links and making more contractions as you go along.

    any more TI1814NoColor being made any time soon?

    of course not it's a transform tool, obviously.

    not everyone can be as beautiful as you, lorenzo. :-p

    interesting that an eye surgery could cause that - bodies are weird. neither of my parents have blue eyes (brown and hazel) yet both my sister and i have blue eyes (well, mostly blue in my case), so they must both have recessive genes for blue eyes (if high school biology was at all accurate)? like a 1/16 chance for that (if my college stats class was any better).

    i noticed that too in the picture, but assumed that it was just the lighting - interesting stuff! i didn't know center-heterochromia was even a thing, but i guess i have it too? - almost opposite of you - my eyes are hazel in the center and blue on the outside. must be genetic, because one of my daughters matches mine (while my other matches my wife's blue-gray eyes).

    i would have thought that too, but zooming in, some of the white "scales" have a bit of fringe or fraying along the outside that makes me think of heavy paper or rag stock or something like that. i assumed too that they just made them all with 5 holes just in case (25% more revealing!). the only one i could find that uses all five is right around her belly button. could definitely be "recycled".

    sorry - i couldn't help myself with the title. i just thought this dress was interesting. i don't know what those "scales" are - they look like heavy paper, or why they all have five holes when nearly all of them only use four. but it's interesting!

    Types of Material

    kind of a side comment, but i would love an out-of-the-box welding set up that would weld 20ga-16ga titanium reliably (that doesn't cost thousands of dollars). i'm sure it can be pieced together, but i'm no electrical (mechanical? industrial?) engineer and don't have the time to invest on researching it. years ago i tried the chinese one that tlr carried, and i could never dial in reliable power settings. it eventually just stopped working (surprise surprise), and i just threw out that $200.

    WTB micromaille wedding rings

    perhaps you know already, but 24ga gold or silver would have to be soldered and would still misform relatively quickly. i use 20ga titanium and still assume i'll need to re-make it every couple years.

    New to this looking for pointers

    "move" in what way? when you're wearing armor or jewelry, it feels almost like aluminum. weaving is like spring steel.

    it's (obviously) entirely up to you, but personally i've given up on the idea that if i'm not making my own rings, i'm not a true mailler. (the fact that i'm usually doing titanium is probably another factor.) i don't mine or smelt the ore, i don't mix the alloy or draw the wire; so if someone else has the knowledge, tools, and processes to make the rings much more efficiently than me, i'm willing to pay for it. just my 2 cents.

    Titanium - Anodized and Plain

    is TI16516NoColor restocking too with the saw-cut? my commission just "officially" fell through that i emailed you guys about late last year (surprise, surprise), but i wouldn't mind getting a little to restock my personal supply (and am working on an order...)

    4 in 1 Belt

    i don't have direct access to it right now, but here's a close-up of the original image where all the weaves come together. i did the hp3-1 first and added the euro4-1 after, but it wouldn't be too terribly complicated to do the reverse, if you're good with persian weaves.
