Mirroring/Copying painted weights

Hey everyone. I'm using TSM2 with Maya 8.5 to rig a character. The mesh is in individual parts (Torso, Head, Hands, and Feet). How can I copy the weighting from the left hand to the right hand and the left foot to the right foot? Remember, the mesh of the left hand is completely separate from the right, and same for the foot (think Rayman).
Thanks for any help.

Hello Buddy3D,

You can still use the `Skin->Edit Smooth Skin->Mirror Skin Weights` tool on multiple meshes. Just select the left foot, shift select the right foot and use the Mirror Skin Weights tool. It should mirror the weights fine.

Hope this helps,
