How to make your own hand guards

Not sure where to post this, but here is a little video I put together showing you how to make your own plastic hand guards.

Great idea! You did an awesome job with your editing in that video too! Looks almost like the kids made them...

It's so easy a child could do it.

Great job!

That was awesome. Just as cool as the carbon fiber how tos.

What kind of plastic can you do that with?
Wonder if you could make a gas tank for a vintage bike using that technique.

On the youtube page right of the video it says "Embed" Copy and paste to your post and you get the above.

I just loved your vid. Not only from the perspective of me learning something but the example of fine parenting. Spending time like that with your kids is valuable for both of you. They will grow up being able to take care of themselves. Enjoy them, I know you have heard it before but they grow up fast. My daughter is going into the Air Force next month...not quite ready to let her go. Thanks again!

Thanks for the feedback. I think you could use other types of plastic. I made a set of white ones from a drywall bucket. That seemed to work fine also.

Very cool. Question, does it matter what kind of plastic you use in the oven?

Glad I stumbled upon this. Not that I will ever do it, but it was very cool to see.

Just the same way they make them in China. Using child labor.
