    Ball and tape

    Anyone know the best way to make the red ball ? Is there a certain bead that will work I'm using resin in a tiny mold, pain in the A / I saw they still make a closet well glove that comes almost complete with no surgery required, but super hard to find.

    - any info or opinions are welcome.

    Cheers

    get a new style 1178 with the plastic tab and you can get the balls off those, or order a custom one already done by Michael Ramirez at Night Terror Gloves

    I bought plastic balls that have the same size as the 1178 wells lamont, then i bought the similar shoe lace color. Then i saw the balls in the middle halfway, then i attached the shoe lace in the middle and powerglued it. Very strong and looks good. Then i painted it red and weather them, then clear coated it.

    Anyone has any idea where do Mike Petrie and some other builders (Jameson in some of his videos) get the red ball and correct strap from?
    It seems the red ball seems to have a special insertion spaceP1Temp4.jpg

    I just bought Mike Ramirez leather glove and i had to change the strap because it's too thick and little bit elastic. Not like rubber, but you can pull it and it will lengthen. The ball however is really nice

    They got the straps from 1178 leather glove. Some of 1178 style still have that strap

    Cerealkiller where did you get your straps from if the one from Michael Ramirez are not good?
    And the red balls where did you purchase them?

    It's just a plastic ball. Just bought regular plastic beads from jewelry store. And also like i mentioned in my previous comment, i saw the ball in the middle halfway and then i powerglued a shoe lace in the middle of the ball. It's a bit more work, but i find these way to save dollars instead of spending it for leather glove just to get the strap off

    Hey CerealKiller

    What is the "official" width of the strap? and the ball diameter?
    Seems I cannot find a shoe lace as close as yours with similar pattern.
    Where did you buy it? over the internet?
    Cheers
