I have GOT to learn how to do the scale maille that Lorenzo showed pictures of in the Gallery section - is that Japanese 4-in-1 back there, or European? Where do you get the scales, what do you make them with? What's the TRL site you mentioned?

I've got to learn how to do that. Smile

Some prototype scale-maille that I've made. It still needs a bit of work before it's perfected. It's based on the Japanese 4-1 pattern hung on a bias.


and TRL is the ring lord site http://www.theringlord.com/
and the TRL forum is http://216.127.73.114/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi

I didn't see instructions on how to make it there, though it was certainly an interesting site....

Lorenzo,

To paraphrase what was said about this achievement on TRL:

You are the Shock and Awe campaign of the mailling world!


"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one."

George Bernard Shaw

Absolutely! Please, share how you do it. I couldn't find anything on the TRL site. I can almost visualize the ring pattern, but the process of making the scales leaves me to wondering. I've got an idea, but it's crude.

Help us out! Smile This'll look GREAT on the back of my denim jacket, in silvered scales.

Here's a link to the most recent thread in the gallery about my armour.

http://216.127.73.114/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=001957

Tons of information and pictures there, I'm not going to repost everything here because I just don't have time.

I'm having these scales professionally made by a manufacturing company, they will be available for sale soon through TRL's site.

Absolutely incredible. The most fantastic work I've seen in chain maille to date.

I'm going to see if I can make my own scales (hey, I'm cheap), but failing that, I'll probably buy scales from the TRL site. I think I might be able to pull it off, wish me luck! If I do, I'll post about what I did and how it all worked out - who knows, it might cost less to make than to get through your manufacturer! Smile

oh I thought your patch of scale you were showing off on TRL's board a while ago was kinda cool but the new picture here has sold me on your scales... those look very nice.. seem to flow well too. will they be available in a silvery white metal color?

Sabor: Scales are a little less than an inch long and a little more than an inch wide. It's almost as flexible as euro 4-1.

Dweezle: Yup, they'll be available in silver, gold and black.
