  1. A vendor on here used to sell these 3M Speedglas headbands for inside the helmets. Anyone know if he still sells them? I wasn't able to find him. Didn't know these headbands are so hard to find now. They look like this - https://www.aftfasteners.com/products/3m-speedglas-welding-helmet-headbands-and-mounting-hardware-5-1-2-x-12-plastic-1-ea.html
  2. I know a while back I saw a How To on making ABS snap plates. Anyone know where it is? I'm helping a friend with his armor and with the snap plate I don't remember how to get the backs of the snaps flush with the plate itself. I'm not sure if we needed to heat the plastic with a solder or heat gun to soften it before installing the snap?
  3. How do you guys control the volume on your speakers while trooping? I have my speaker mounted inside my chest plate and there's no way for me to reach it myself to control it..always have to have someone else do it for me. Would be awesome if there was a line I could run to my hand to control the volume myself. What do you guys do?
  4. Thanks Joseph, I guess I'm limited on what to do.
  5. I've been having issues where the chin of my helmet keeps rubbing against the top of my chest plate and wanted to know who else has this problem and what you've done to alleviate it. I find myself constantly lifting my head slightly to clear my chest plate. These are things I've tried and thought of but didn't help - - Thought of placing a pad on the inside top of my helmet to raise it a bit but then I wouldn't be able to see through the eyes. - I've tried lengthening the shoulder straps so the chest plate could come down some but that made my backplate stick out from my back. - I've shaved the edge of the chin down a bit to give it a bit more room but it made a minimal difference. Any other suggestions and/or what you've done that works? Thanks troopers!
  6. Hey Adam, Thanks for the offer! But yeah I already ordered it and it finally came a few days ago. Haven't really played with it yet...but hope it works out! Thanks again for the offer though....very cool!
  7. Sorry to revive this but I noticed part numbers and whatnot have changed on the site. Is this the one that you guys have ordered? - http://www.ixradio.com/shop/throat-microphone-with-1-8-3.5mm-plug-for-voice-amplifier-xvtm822d-d35-single-transponder.html
  8. Try putting a piece of velcro on the 'tongue' of the boot and one inside the lower front part of the shin. It's what works for me. Never had an issue and it's a simple fix.
  9. How did you put the aluminum piece on there and where did you get the piece?
  10. I know! I still have save many of the messages we exchanged with each other from back then...so crazy!
  11. Thanks Walter! And thanks for all the help and support you gave me since day one!
