I'll just drop this here... (powerfist related)
« on: September 08, 2015, 09:20:33 PM »
So I was keeping this a secret until completion, I had been working on a power fist for a few months now and had just enough time to finish it before this year's FanExpo.

Notes : I didn't have access to a 3d printer, and wanted digits that were somewhat solid, so foam was out of the question. Ended up going with 3mm modelmaker's birch plywood. The dimensions are loosely based on Henrik's finger sizes, except for the thumb. Modified them to fit thinner material, have bigger pivot points, and using springs rather than manually opening the fingers.

It's pretty heavy, but well strapped to the arm is no harder to carry around than my bolt pistol. The pull strings are made of 200lb test kevlar strands, and I can grab and crush water bottles and soda cans easily. All in all this took about 2 months of spare time to build, definitely not the easy route. Hope you enjoy

Very nice! You can wear it when you drink beer to conserve space in the recycling box!

That looks excellent.  Can you put up a video of you crushing a heretical can or water bottle?

Being local to you, I would like to volunteer my services as cameraman and production assistant.  ;D

I can volunteer Cernar as well.

For the Emperor.
