Yes, you can polish aluminum of all types in a tumber, but I wouldn't use sand as it would be too abrasive. Plain rice or walnut shells would be a better choice.

You don't. Full helmets are required for SCA combat. You only use maille for body protection, in addition to the SCA minimum requirements.

3/16" 18ga works just fine for Elfweave. It's not even especially tight.

Niobium is soft. I wouldn't reccomend it for armor. Besides, for the price, you can go with titanium. That will stand up to the abuse.

14ga aluminum will stand up to LARP-level abuse, (firm foam we ...

TRL is excellent, but you might be able to beat them. Look around for local wire suppliers. If they'll sell to you in small quantities, (e.g. lesss than 100lbs), you might match or beat TRL's prices a ...

I'm in the "Depends on the wire" category. With the 16ga stainless, 8" linesmans pliers are pretty much a must. With 18ga stainless, I switch to a pair of Kobalt compound leverage 6" needle nose. When ...
