Took a break from the Goldwing Project this weekend.... need to keep my interest level up. Decided to see what king of steampunk themed lamp I could come up with using mostly stuff in my shop:
Its a 1930's era fan, whose switch is missing, motor blown, and generally worthless. The "neck" of the fan is a repurposed brass section from an old garden sprayer circa early 1900's. The base is a cast iron lamp base. Combine the above with a sewing machine motor, roller chain, gears, and a bit of oak.... and you get this:
This is a "test fit" shot, and I have to put the cage on and finish everything. She's mostly done, though. When I finish it up I'll post a video of it running!
