Glacial pace continues

I fixed up that hinge a bit, punched and filed the slot in one part of the vambrace to accomodate it, and did most of the punching on the other. Found it was easiest to adjust the hinge pin's length with the belt sander, and it was easiest to pein by putting the rivet set in the vice, and pounding on the other end of the pin. Otherwise it just walks out of the hinge. The final result is pretty good.
Still have to attach the vambrace, attach this hinge, and do some adjustments to the vambrace. Then put in the strapping holes, and fire it. I should probably cut a slot for the closure strap, since it looks spiffy.
