  1. Yeah it would have been a 20 minute job then. Stitching them backup while still on the pad was the most time consuming part.
  2. A few months ago I replaced the foams in a set of CCM R1.5's for around $35 (including shipping) from Sara at PAW. I did 1" LD45 and 1/4" EVA. Don't have the exact number as I bought some other stuff from her at the same time. It probably would have been less if I would have gotten the EVA pre-cut but I wanted some extra material to play around with for other projects. I think it took me around an hour start to finish to rip out seams, trim the foams and sew them back up all while still attached to the pad. I think you could get away with not stitching them back up due to the sandwiching of the stack with the inner and outer knee flaps.

    Team Pics

    Humor. I played high school with 3 of those guys in that photo. (RIP St Louis). That looks like Piney Orchard. Are you still playing at Laurel? I liked playing at Dalgren Hall. Real easy to get overheated but it was cool watching games up on the 2nd level as well.
  4. I doubt it. The one mask they show finished has certification stickers on the backplate. Towards the end they show the mask being screwed on, foam glued and backplate being snapped in.
  5. Homemade Professor Strap. My version 1.1 Not much to say, sewed velcro onto some webbing. Originally had the inside double d ring split between the angled and vertical lacing. Not enough velcro to securely bite so replaced with snaps. Outside portion of the strap just uses velcro and holds pretty well. Going to add some snaps to that side as well at some point.
  6. Per request. '06 Eddy Molson Commissioned Mask Also included a pic of an olie & the jofa (mid-90's) I used way back when
  7. Can do, can also throw in the Jofa that I used when I was a kid. (I still have it)
  8. Came across an Eddy Molson mask. Pretty decent shape, a tiny bit of rust on the cage, and a few light scratches on the left side. No stains on the inside, some dents in the foam from the backplate resting against it. All I have found so far is that most were a bar promotion item and was mentioned on a how-its-made episode. Supposedly some were made for the ice, I dont know if those were certified or what. If this one was a bar promotion, why bother installing a chin strap on it? Anybody have any information on it? Part of me wants to use it because it fits my head so nicely. The other part wants to keep it nice and shiny because it is nice and shiny (minus defects mentioned above). Another part wants to sell it and fund a project.
  9. Been playing hockey for ~25 years. Played a little goalie here and there when I was in peewee/bantam. Fast forward to last year and I have picked up an interest in playing goal. Anyways I have been collecting equipment since then. Waiting for deals and the like. Ended up with CCM pads/catch/blocker, simmons pants, bauer chest and skates. Olie helmet along with an Eddy that I will be asking questions about. I enjoy messing around with pretty much everything so here are some mods. If interest is shown I can post pics elsewhere: -Relaced the catch glove into a floating T with skate lace because I had to redo my son's glove so why not do mine too and experiment a little. -Made a removable velcro/nylon professor strap.
