  • Lordy, a day to prep your parts! Some thoughts from a machinist. A metal-cutting vertical bandsaw would have those pieces cut in about an hour, including deburring. Acetone dissolves superglue and dychem. Use spray paper glue instead of superglue. That ball is called a dolly, look for panel-beaters tools. Make the holes from the inside of curve to avoid having to hold an unstable surface. Hope that helps. Great vids. Please print more youtube, I never knew you could do that :P

  • You can't remove paper from steel? You are aware paper burn's aren't you? Why don't you make your Armor out of Damascus? You are aware Armour was originally Forged by Blacksmiths before sheet metal was available.

  • PRO TIP ALEC, if you need to remove superglue, use ACETONE, it will dissolve any cyanoacrylate-based superglue instead of alchohol much better and let you peel whatever you glued down off better same goes for sharpie too if you ever get that where you dont want it

  • Next time skip the super glue and go straight to the acetone. It only works if you use a laser printer but if you do. Just place the printed paper on the metal and pour the acetone into it. The ink will be released from the paper and stick to the metal. Used to do it when I would make name plates or baptism bracelets. My dad laughed and said calligraphy wasnt something you could rush into and showed me that cool little trick until I didnt need to anymore.
