I picked up hp3n1 sheet and I am making a bracer out of it but I am wondering if there is a way to add expansion rings to it. I had an idea of how but just want some input on the idea. The way I thought of doing it is too add the expansion rings while you are adding the euro connected rings. Please help. Thank you.

which way do the rows go on your bracer, up the arm or around the arm?

They will be going up the arm. Rows are vertically orientated.

you could build it on an angle where it laces up. or did you want to try to use rubber links and make it all the way around.

There is, it's kind of a secret... Coif LoL
Phong figured it out with his HP3S6 bracer... He hasn't officially divulged information...
I kind of re-figured it out on my own making mine... I showed Phong in person, and he was pretty much "Yup, that's identical to mine, nicely done."
I sort of want to defer to him on this, as I kind of feel like it's his secret to tell...

What I will tell you, is that the expansion is in the bottom seam.

I got to try those bracers on myself. *pats self on back* I don't know the secret... but if I did, I would spill the beans in a heartbeat. Razz

@djgm : yes that is what I was thinking.

@daemon : would be nice if there was a tutorial wrote up on it. (Hint hint hint Smile )
