these are my chucks













i made them cutting an aluminium tube for the 12" sticks
added plastic tubes that perfectly fit inside them to add weight and thickness (needed to hold the pins that lock the chain)
then i made the holes and hammered the metal pins in them, passing thru the chain

in the original idea i thought to cover the aluminium sticks with an hard rubber tube for more weight grip and diameter, but i really like the way aluminium sticks look grin
they are ~7/8 inch diameter, do you think i should add the rubber tube?

total weight: 290g

Very nice nunchuks man  grin

I would add the rubber.. but I have a problem with thin nunchakus, that's why I would add the rubber.
I think Freestyle is better with slim nunchakus.
Not tried that out, so I can't say..
I'm sure that some evil german or a crazy scotsman at this forum will right me at this comment  grin

Cool. I never thought about making nunchakus before.....Would I have to be especially good with tools to make one? @_@ XD  I'd probably end up just trying to make it look nice though...

Yup they look really nice and solid.
I've never tried to use a chain only, always had a swivel at each end.
My conclusion: It sucks hard, they break too early

It's not only the price for the swivels, you could even hit yourself very badly.
Dangerous thing, you solved this problem just right.

I'm gonna update my ones soon
Have fun with 'em Smiley
