Hello everyone! This is the ArmorySmith Workshop and I’m continuing to make the armet “Griffon”. Now I need to make a final adjustment of the shape, straightening and welding. Make the skull of the helmet complete. The first half is done. The left one. And it took around 2 hours. In fact, that is a lot. As you may have noticed, while straightening the left half, or is it the right one? Yes, right. I regularly adjusted it to the left one. While straightening, the metal loses its shape and it is harder to adjust halves to one another. You shouldn’t finish all the work and only then try to adjust everything at once. It is better to do it while the detail holds its original shape. This will make your job easier. I wanted to finish it two sets. But it turns out I need a third period of time to finish it, Because it is 9.30 PM at the moment. But almost straightened helmet will be finished in 5 hours. And it will take 1.5-2 hours to weld it and polish the welding seam. Therefore, it will add up to the 7 hours of work. 7 hours to make such a helmet skull. So, it is a third time I’m doing it, I’m ready to continue. This bottom part is not straightened yet. And I need to weld it. It has been 5 hours 15 minutes since I’d started the work. And I’m ready to weld the two halves together. The most important thing while welding is the top of the helmet. This is sort of a beacon. I’m connecting the top. And I’m adjusting the rest according to it. I’m connecting the halves together. I’m not showing the welding, because the light will change rapidly and it won’t be pleasant to look at. The helmet skull id finished, it has been 6 hours 30 minutes since I’d started the work. The helmet is not welded on the inside, because when I’m forging the visor here I will need to be able to adjust the skull and the visor to one another. There will be two movable visors. Which is why I’m not welding there, so I have the possibility to adjust the parts properly. I think I will need to bend it a bit here, most likely I will cut it. In fact, the work on the skull is not completed in full, but I can continue only when I have the rest of the details. So I can connect them and adjust to one another. At this moment, this is a visible piece of work, which needs to be done so it is possible to start making the visor. When we are assembling some complicated items, we start with the base. It this case this base is the skull. And the small parts are made after it. The welding from the inside will take around 45 minutes. And 45 minutes to cut it. Roughly speaking, I will need around 1.5 hours to work on this skull. Adding up to the 6.5 hours which I already spent on this such good, finished skull will take around 8 work hours. Of course, I thought I will be able to finish it quicker. But for the work to go quicker I will need to work with a cameraman. Because I spend the time to set the frame, change batteries. Answer some calls, questions. I will go back to this question, how fast would I be able to make the helmet if I really tried hard. Thank you for watching, Leave a like if you liked it. I will make a video about the visor later. Thank you, till the next time!
