This is a work in progress, and I only add to it when I have time. I will update this thread, or create new ones with all of the info as needed. This is restricted to how-to's that people have posted on RAT. I am not interested in outside links, though perhaps once this one is done a section for outside links can be made.

Absolvte God amongst men. Thank yov!
Wow, Matt, that is awesome!
Hello Matt,

Great Stuff. Thanks for taking the time and putting this together.
Perhaps we can ask the original posters to re-up any missing photos?
Very useful-especially for new reenactors- thank you.
GOOD work, Matt :-)
Thanks a lot!

Any update to the links? I know it's been 4 years, but the links don't work.
I agree mj. It would be nice to have working links to those sites.
Unfortunately it seems that many links are now dead. I think that has happened due to several conversions?
Are there any way to revive these links?
