(Belated Weekend Part 3) My First Breastplate - Front & Rear
For the rear breastplate, I decided to try rolling the edge. The first thing about this that I should mention is that I did it backwards -- I rolled it on the inside instead of the outside of the plate. Oh well.
Rather than try to reinvent the wheel, I will direct you to read the armour rolling tutorial located here since that is what I was working from anyways. Some pictures of the process:
Rebated cold chisel as my stake.
Anyways, below you can see all three plates laid back out on the table in their original configuration. You can see how much metal was trimmed and folded!
Up next - attaching hinges and then leathering a complete shoulder section together.
