i made a set of jack chains n fitted leather around the arms to add more protection.

i cut n shaped the leather then soaked it in water for bout n hour till the bubbles stopped n it was soaked throu, i didnt bother baking it. i just wrapped the different bits of leather in thick plain rags wrapped around some paint pots stuck in a warm place n left to dry. once its dry it should stay in shape n be hard.

once ide done that i attached it to the jacks, the leather does stand up to being hit fairly hard
