Steampunk wristgun 3 by Hexonal Steampunk wristgun 3 by Hexonal
I can't believe i finished this!
Wrist fired Gatling gun
All metal and leather construction, made from various brass findings & antique clock parts. I also mounted a real quartz crystal with copper wires as an Aethericy sort of ammunition.
on the leather i did an antique/weathered finish, and tried to keep it utilitarian.
The best part is, when you turn the key, the barrels rotate!
That was by far the hardest part on this one.

She still needs a name, and I think I'm going to make a stand for her before I list her on Ebay. any help with the name is much appreciated.
Please check out the other views in my gallery.

You know... It's too bad you couldn't have gotten a Music box mechanism to power that thing.

Still looks pretty cool.

Your method is similar to mine except lack of brass and proper tools.

Sit in front of huge piles of broken electronics/ random things I've taken apart instead of brass.

Jack Daniels

rest is the same

I just end up taking apart brass things, lol. the only proper tool I've got is my drill press. I make most of the tools i use on the leather.

That is the most amazing tutorial ever, although I doubt I'd ever be able to get to step six. Weighing a buck-twenty, no experience with drill presses or brass bits, but stubborn enough to keep-going-until-I-have-*something*-god-damn-it....it would only end in tears and hospital visits possibly involving a stomach pump...

Still...

Sounds fun

Hrm. A tutorial would be rather difficult to do, as the piece is finished, and in Australia. Most of my work like this just sort of comes together. Here is the step by step process for most of my work:

Step one, sit in front of a large pile of brass parts and a drill press.
Step two, pour a pint of Guinness
Step three, try to make said parts fit together, resembling something.
Step four, get frustrated and toss said parts across the room.
step five, repeat steps two through four until you have something.
step six rivet it to a piece of leather.

Not much help I know, but the best I can do, lol.

I used to work mostly in silver colored metal, then i started liking copper...then the brass grew on me. has to be old brass though, no bright shiny stuff.
