Shield Scale Kits Shield Scale Kits
These shield shaped scales are a rivet-style or sewing-style scale. They can be attached to a leather or cloth backing using rivets, thread or wire.
You can vary the amount of overlap for these scales as desired. A general guide is that the tip of the scale in the 1st row is very near the top of the 3rd row. Using this layout you will need ~110 scales per square foot.
These scales were originally commissioned from TheRingLord as a custom shape for the movie Seveth Son

You can of course use these scales to make many projects other than the overlapped pattern shown - see the following images as examples. Click image to see larger version

Hole Punches
All of these punches are rated to make holes in our anodized aluminum strip. The heavy duty punch is more sturdy and will hold up to more use. Only the heavy duty punch should be used for thicker material than our strip, tags or scales - or for harder materials like stainless.
Lubricating the material you are punching will greatly extend tool life and give you better quality holes. Any saw cutting lube will work - such as the stick lube we sell. WD40 is excellent. I suggest wetting a piece of cloth and wiping the it across the piece before punching. You only need a tiny bit of lube. Its enough to lubricate about every 10th punch. Even though aluminum is soft, this is where lube is most critical.
