Will not dent, bend, or rust. T-1100 tempered. No restrictions of movement.

Of course, instead of the long, lithe look of all the effigies and museum displays, I look more like a fire hydrant in it.

Cap-a-pie Weight comparisons:

I left the 9 lb. - 12 gauge Stainless steel helm out of the equation, because it is a wash.

Kydex
Cannot have, and does not have, ANY articulation lames, but is practically unbreakable.
Weight - 34 lbs.

Mixed 14 and 16 Gauge mild steel
No articulation lames to reduce armor joint damage.
Weight – 100 lbs.

17-7 PH spring stainless steel
Fully articulated
Weight – 48 lbs.

I was building myself a pair of articulated sollerets. I made them to fit to my fighting shoes. Oddly enough, when I put the shoes on my feet, they took on a totally different shape than I had made my Sollerets. Gotta go back and refit them.

These 2 little ugly scraps are perfectly TIG welded 17-7 PH stainless steel. I been fighting this battle for months! This is .04" thick. I was so exited to see this work after 4 months, I couldn't keep my had still enough to make a straight bead. Its clean, penetrated and smooth on BOTH sides. Yeeeeehhaaaaaa!!!
The fittings for the diffuser were supposed to fit my torch, but they weren't even close! Thankfully, my goldsmithing and machinist skills allowed me to make very tiny thread adapters and a custom tungsten holder to performthe job.

Here are the specs.:

60 amps
argon at 30 cfm
#12 cup with diffuser
tungsten sticking WAY out (3/4")
all fans off
