Steampunk Pocket Watch [Dec. 11th, 2009|06:50 pm]

Today I pestered Mr Burridge (master bronze age sword smith) into casting this for me. It was an exercise in what I can get away with (in bronze casting, not cheek) and how need to make the patterns in future. Very happy with the result.

Here is the pouring of the bronze.






The finished result.


More later....

So can you tell the time by it yet? Does it fit in your pocket? That's a lot of bronze and you are going to machine most of it away! Do you think you will need to make the next ones as big or will they get smaller? (Last question is the serious one!)
