A call to arms

Attendance has a been light at the armour shop since it reopened for business. A lot of it is schedule since it's been intermittent Fridays. In any case Helene and Nicola came out and we all ended up working mostly on arms. Helene's fixes were pretty quick, just a few holes to pop really. Nicola is getting himself outfitted with a new harness, and he's wisely chosen to go with something 15th century and Italian. So we spent a couple hours patterning, cutting, pounding and articulating a pair of elbows in spring steel. His are on the left, and the pair this inspired me to make for myself are on the right. A couple little tweaks and those gaps will go away, then we can fire them, polish them and mount them to vam and rerebraces.
