Hi all

Can anybody give me an instuction or hint how to gimmick Irish 8 / Darby / Hamburg handcuffs.
I'v read it should be an easy thing. Some slit needs to be filed but haven't found a detailed
explanation.

If you don't want to tell here plz feel free to send me a PM.

Thank you in advance
El

PS. Plz don't tell me to buy gimmicked ones. I own 2 pairs of ungimmicked ones.

Hi--The Darbies and the "Hamburg 8" each require their own method of gaffing (i.e. A "Hamburg 8" is not operated & gaffed like a "Darby"/"Irish 8").

Are you specifically asking about gaffing the "Irish 8" or the "Hamburg 8"?

Hi Mox

Thank you for the advice.

Now I decited to use them for performing.

Yes! A picture will help!

I have a pair of Hamburg 8s, gaffed by Trudel, years ago.

Hiya

I did some research and found out it is a Hamburg 8.
I talked to a hand cuff collector on the phone and he
knew how to gaff them. It's not a hard thing to do.

I thank you all for your responses.

Actually, You have to know the correct side, to it’s too easy for someone else to get out,
and additionally, there are three methods for hamburg 8S

I uised the slit method and made it so I have to really bend my hands over to get out - hurts a bit but it makes it more impressive. Smile

Yes That’s because you put it on the correct side - the other side makes it too easy for a spec to get out,

But what are the other two methods? PM me.

Yeah Dave!

I would be interested in the other methods, too. (If you are willing to share them!)

I got mine from C. Thomas MAGRUM, when he retired. Clem got them from Trudel. I have the original instructions.

Hi Dave,

would you share the other two methods with me too?
Maybe one of the other methods is working better for me.

Because of my disabilities I mostly need to figure out how I can make
routines work for me. So it would be a chance to pick the smoothest working
method for me.

I emailed it from my other account. I am really Jay Lesley ..(joke mods don't delete me)... it was Jay who mentioned there are three methods not me. I only know one Smile Oh woe is me Smile

Depending on your disability (I have to use a wheel chair these days) you may like B-Lock by Harley Newman ..... not selling you mine though! Smile

Hi Dave

sorry for the confusion. This was a kind of freudian Smile

So I hope Jay comes up with the other two methods.

I own a couple of trick locks. I could use those too but the hamburg handcuffs
look imho a bit more impressive.

Can't even affort buying more magical stuff like locks this month.
Just got me an Erdnase Bible. Had it as an ebook but some books I like to have
with real ink on real paper.
