I have been making a pair of batman begins inspired gauntlets for a friend's fan film. I hammered them out of 18 ga mild steel, blades will be ground from 3/16" steel. Just one question, how are the originals kept shut? I was thinking of using something like the 'turning pins' shown on this site- http://www.eskimo.com/~cwn/arm_15thC.html but I have no idea where to get them.
Progress so far-
