. Wack it in the pre-heated oven at 200C for under 5 minutes. My own take on the procedure is that after I took out the mee/detsoftenld perspex I quickly placed it over a rolling pin and got a perfectly shaped cuff. I used a 11*16 piece to get the desired result. Safety must be considered!!!! the softened perspex is very hot do not touch it with bare hands! :) I will send you some pictures later in PM.


2, 3, 7, 10...look where the throwing hand is. Luckily no broken bones. 8 looks like fist behind the glove.

John, Thanks for the comment. It sounds like you're interested in the "how" and "why" of catching, which is great! That is the type information that I cover in my book and DVD...they would both be good resource for you to learn from!
