These are images at the beginning of the armature making. With my design of the Magician character I carefully laid out the joints and set about cutting the metal rods for the limbs inbetween the joints. I had to measure everything very carefully. To cut the metal rods I used a pencil to mark carefully where I wanted to make the cut and then used a workbench and clamp to secure the rod. I then used a good hacksaw to cut the metal. It is important to file the ends carefully or they won’t screw into the balls and fixtures properly. I really enjoyed making this armature and its the first one I have ever made.
