Worked the armory table this weekend at the SYC at Rain City Fencing Center in Bellevue, WA this last weekend. Between the other armorer and I we failed a mask for just about every reason I know of. Mask punch failure, failing welds, bibs detaching, and missing rivets. I had two questions/clarifications that I wanted to check on. For a bib that is becoming detached, is gluing it back on an adequate fix? We didn't feel that would hold up well enough. For missing rivets on the mask securement device: We saw two different types, On the all star mask the top rivet pulled through. One it fails a mask punch due to the big hole. two if fails since the one of the securement device is not up to factory spec. Does that sound right? I got a lot of argument back from a coach and would like to be able to better articulate why I won't pass the mask. The other rivet failure was a missing rivet for the top velcro which attaches to the contour mask strap on a leon paul x-change mask. Since the velcro was only held on by one rivet instead of the two we failed for the securement device is not up to factory spec. On to the best failure of the weekend. I was checking a lame the back showed very high resistance around the name. thinking it was just too much paint I went to sand it off when larger pieces started peeling off. What it looks like happened was that someone used a heat transfer to put the name on the back of the lame and never removed the transfer sheet. It looks like it might have been left under the heat press for too long. Apparently it passed at multiple events that way before being failed at the last one. Was able to get off enough for it to conduct again.
