Imperial Binders (Handcuffs) - NO LONGER AVAILABLE


Recommended Posts

NO LONGER AVAILABLE

 

Had a great response at my first troop to my binders and was asked if I would makes some for others, so thought I should live up to my squad nickname of Q and start producing. Also had an enquiry about the pouch to hold them so I best make some of them also. Here's a few photo's of how things are progressing, up to 9 orders at my local garrison lol.

 

My original pair

A couple of request for chain instead of solid mount and also ANH Chewie binders, working on those. Trying a couple of different chains.

Base coat applied on first run of binders, copper coated ANH style binders done. Will need another coat then I will apply a couple of coats of clear to protect the base colour.

Glen, you amaze me... lol

Sweet!

Thanks guys, sometimes I amaze myself :lol:

 

These are awesome....got a target price yet?

$55 AUS for binders and pouch but not thinking about selling overseas as yet, there is someone on the 501st producing them .

 

how do they stay shut, magnets?

Rare earth magnets, tried two sizes and it is amazing how strong even just the 5 x 3mm are.

You calling me out Glen? ^_^ (just kidding)

 

Once I get a few things situated and my prototypes finished I will get a thread up about them.

Thanks again Q really nice work and please don't forget me when you do another run of your E-11, plus I also would like to get the black bindings with the bar in the middle but not right at this time I need to pay some bills lol. Ill drop you a line and hopefully you'll still be making them.

I do still have parts for them but because of shipping costs to overseas areas I would not be able to ship them to you.

I actually make ANH binders for the guys in my Garrison. They close magnetically and are solid brass. Most of us have ANH TKs so having the PVC binders would be ESB or ROTJ. That's what made me decide to make them to be accurate. I made the 4" which are exactly like the movie but they are too big so I made the 3" for trooping and binding for photos. The 4" would be reserved for a Wookie if I ever run into one !!

 

Darman has a set and is designing the holster as we speak.

I engrave them for them as well as you see.

Doesn't that depend on whether I am willing to pay for those costs? Up to you of course :-)

True :)

 

My biggest worry is customs. The only thing I have sent overseas are patches & I really do not trust the U.S. Post Office.
