Re: Jem777LNG/Handrest

Well, I guess a picture's worth a thousand words.
So...
(Excuse the fairly lame photo album; needed something quick just for this...)

A thousand words

Ummm...yeah. It's a handrest. All LNG's (along with several DY's & SK's) came with them. Your point?

My point is, this particular LNG's handrest was long-gone when I took it to assess a couple of weeks ago.
I've been trying to find someone with one to sell; no such luck.
So, I constructed this one myself by hand.
Your reaction is basically along the lines of what I'd hoped for; you took it for an original.
Thank-you for your comment.

Actually you can clearly see the difference, and it would be alot clearer if you had shot a close up of the rest alone. But still a decent job

LOL Nice job! Rich is right though...kinda hard to see anything in those pics. Just looks like a mass of black metal resembling a handrest. It'd be interesting to just see a pic of the rest itself on a white background.

Thanks.
I wouldn't suspect something non-original would get past Rich - he's seen plenty of the real ones...
Having some decent pics with the distortion of perspective to deal with, I did my hurried best to arrive at good proportions for it.
I do model building and such-like; just applied that to metal for the first time.

I've added some more pics, ones that may help illustrate it a bit better - these aren't from a digital cam, they're from a reg. 35mm processed as a photo CD, so they're not the best... I picked the best ones I could find to show it better.

Still very close, reminiscent of a first type rest. Does it have a return spring?

Yuppers, if you look closely, you can see the spring on the hinge closest to the bar, as on the originals.
It is strong as an ox, fully functional. It may well be stronger than one of the originals - I don't know any more; I have only touched one, and that was 15 years ago.
I was going for the original, flat-top look. Easier to accomplish with .064 metal, too.

Thank-you for the comments. It certainly helps to make it more authentic in appearance and function.
I still want to get a real one, but this helps in the mean time.

Very cool! I'm sure that if it were something that you wouldn't mind doing a few of, you'd have no problem finding interested parties (myself included!)

thoroughly agreed, I think You should make some and pass on the goodies. It would also increase your christmas money, and since kahler isnt in business anymore no one to sue you

I'm considering this, based on your replies.
I'll let y'all know; I'm yet to even try it a second time.

how much effort did you spend on making this? Is it a very involved process?
