I did not make the full former, I tried using some contraptions of my own, which again failed me. However maybe I'll try making my own rings on the next one and see which alternative came out cheaper.

Let me know how it goes, I love making chainmaille the link is too a hood i made and pic is the full set. if you want to make your own rings invest in a dremel. If you coil them on a metal rod have a wooden dowl the same size to slide them onto then clamp them and just cut straight across the top, I tried cutting them by hand and it took hours -.-

Well the shipment is not that far from me, they're also aluminum so this thing won't work as real armor. It's about $7.50 for 1000 rings. The hauberk will be my size and cheaper than a fully made bought one.

Mine is for cosplay and I tried the routine of wrapping aluminum, then steel, around a dowel and cut the rings. The rings would take too long to make and often came out horribly. I have a tendency of starting but not finishing projects. Thus to avoid giving up while still build something I opted to buy the rings.

Fair play. I don't know where you're from but in the UK you can get steel wire (garden wire) at £6.50 for 50m and that makes about 1500 - 2500 depending on the size of your rings. Did you just wrap it around the dowel or did you make a full former? Pic related: very quick diagram of the former I made I used a hollow metal rod (8mm cold rolled steel) drilled a hole in it the thread some of the wire into it to hold it in place, then all you do is turn the handle and hold the wire steady.

Sadly I tried and failed, so I buy them by the thousand on ebay.

If you think these experiments are the same, or that the results match up, you're a retard who should never try to discuss anything pertaining to scientific study. Pedantry in scientific study is a must, but this isn't even pedantry. The methodologies are entirely different, and the transference of punishment in the hypothetical study is not comparable to the results shown in the real study, in which the naïve monkeys WEREN'T punished at all, but learned anyway. The hypothetical naïve monkeys were just punishing each other.

Kindly fuck off with your ignorance and retardation. You're not worth another reply.

Wow angry much? You're completely missing the point, the learned behaviour in the first study is avoiding the object, whereas the learned behaviour in the story is the punishing of other monkeys. How can you not see that both the real and the made up experiments show that monkeys will learn behaviour from conditioned individuals without exposure to the initial stimulus? I'm not getting into an insult flinging contest but it really sounds like you've just read that article you linked to and have taken that one authors opinion and made it your own. The methodology is not so different except the real study stops at the introduction of the first monkey without continuing to add more. You're mistaking the learned behaviour in the first one to be avoiding the ladder when in fact the behaviour they learn is to punish monkeys who approach it. It's not about transference of punishment it is about the learning of a specific behaviour. This phenomenon is seen in both studies. Grow up and don't get so upset over the internet, especially when you're wrong.

And I admitted that the fictional ladder experiment was based on Stephenson's study. "The Stephenson experiment was the basis for the mythical monkey experiment". Meanwhile, you're trying to give me shit for not reading a multiple-page study in eye-straining quality (which I have now read and concluded that I learned nothing new of importance, so thanks for that).

The hypothetical and actual experiments were vastly different, had very dissimilar results, and hardly came to the same conclusion. Learned fear conditioning among male monkeys specifically =/= "munkies were attacked for doing thing so now they don't do thing!" The main difference is that in the real study, the naïve (male) monkeys grew cautious despite not being punished themselves, because they heeded warnings. The fictional story has the new monkeys being conditioned by fear from being beaten up if they get close to the banana. It's just transference of the punishment, letting them punish each other. Original experiment only had the initial monkeys punished.

I don't see where these 'vast differences' are. The only difference is that the original had monkeys punished for interacting with an object and the story had a ladder and a banana. Both show monkeys learning a behavior through copying the actions of others. in the orginal the naive males copied the conditioned males in avoiding the objects and in the story the new monkeys copied the other monkeys in beating the one climbing the stairs. The results are the same both groups learnt a behaviour (avoiding an object/attacking a monkey) without the initial stimulus by copying what the existing subject/s did. You're just being pedantic if you think that these are completely different or that the results aren't similar.
