He had a machine shop drill into the WG pommel so that the V2 pommel can fit in it and somehow permanently adhere the V2 pommel to the War Glaive pommel so he can keep the V2 threading.

Question: How did you adapt the War Glaive pommel to the V2?   

As mentioned the machinist could have drilled out the WG pommel so the ID hole was just a few thousandths too small to accept the V2 pommel. Then by carefully heating the WG pommel it would expand and the hole would become that few thousandths wider as well. Then they could quickly press the V2 pommel into the WG and allow it all to cool down again. The cooling down causes the WG pommel to shrink back down to normal size around the V2 pommel so it would be permanently wedged in place. Similar to how plumbers press fit pipes together before final soldering.

However they did it, it looks fantastic and congrats JediMazterSK!

point for the share.

well you guys (and girls) approval really means alot
after seeing so many customs, nobody seemed to be into the v2 models
realizing they weren't compatible with anything made me want to try even more lol anyhow big thanks (+point)

I like the glove. 😁👍🏽🤟🏼

appreciate gumby. took some time. looking up references. sewing metal digits, microchips, etc
but glad it all worked out. going for that whole robotic hand effect wasn't as easy as i thought

thanks Karmack
like Infinit said, had a custom guy remove threads from WG sitting v2 pommel inside
as Tyeth mentioned he used a heating method to mold them together without welding
highly suggested for those wiling to go through the procedure plus finding custom welder with decent price
