Overview and Parts/tools for this project.

There is two separate parts of this project. In the first part I take you step by step how to make the blade box. This is the complete setup for the blades and the triggering mechanism. In the second part I make a craft foam gauntlet to put it on my wrist. This second part is just a suggestion on my part. You can do this part any way you like.

Optional Gauntlet

  • 3 large sheets of craft foam (12x18 inches)
  • hot glue
  • 2 strips of velcro both halves (hook and loop)

 

Ok! Let's Get Started

Trace the parts

Print up the template and trace all the parts onto foamboard or cardboard. You can do this tracing either of two ways. First, like you see in this photo, you can place the sheets on foamboard and trace over the lines of the various parts while pressing firmly. This causes an indent in the foam that you then can draw out.

 

 

 

 

Cut out the parts

Or you can cut out the various template pieces and then trace around them onto your foamboard or cardboard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Either way you do it you end up with sixteen parts. Each part is numbered in the template. Draw these numbers on your foamboard parts. This will make it easier for you to assemble because I show you by the numbers.

All the parts are traced

 

All the cut out parts

Go ahead and cut out those pieces.

Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board and using smaller foam board sheets : Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

 

NextOkay! All the prep work is done. Let's continue the tutorial and build it!!
