Steampunk wrist gun 1 by Hexonal Steampunk wrist gun 1 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.

That's nice work with leater. What'd you use to cut it? I'm stuck with using an exacto knife and sewing it together is even tougher. This looks really smooth from the sides.

In all honesty, it was cut with an xacto knife, I usually go through at least 2 blades per piece.
I did use a beveler on the edges as well, so they taper out.
Hand stitching is always a pain in the ass, I use an awl to punch the holes, and a blunt leather needle to sew, I've got wheels to mark out the holes before punching, but a flat tined dinner fork can work as well to get even spacing.
Glad you like.

I used an exacto knife. :p Just made a belt and stuff, but it's difficult to use a needle alone. It's a thick sharp needle but I was certain there was an easier way. To make the leather more stable, you just layer it?

Oh yeah, just a needle alone is rought, punch the holes with an awl for sure. And how do you mean stable? If you mean harder, there are lots of ways, boiling (which will shrink it, but make it rock hard) or getting it wet, and using a hair dryer will stiffen it.

This one already sold, and is in private collection on the other side of the planet.
I normally do commisions, but I've got a big one I'm working on, as well as a gallery show coming up that is eating my all of my time.
That being said, shoot me an email at
Hexonal@yahoo.com annd tell me what you're looking for, and I can give you a quote and timeframe.

Well, exact recreation of this piece would be impossible, I've no vlue what most of the parts came from. It iss also indended to be a one of a kind piece of artwork. But, I am open to doing custom work, and could do something similar, shoot me an email Hexonal@yahoo.com and we can work something out.

I do still have 2 more of these in different stages of completion, now that I've got less commissions I'm planning to get back to them. I don't know if they will be as intricate in the metalwork, buut the leather will be less simple.

Thanks!. No, not part of a larger work, just something I pieced together from my many piles of random junk collected over the span of my life. It has sold, found a lovely home in Australia, and even got me published in a book!
Thanks for the interest, more to come!

Alas, it already sold. Found a happy home in Australia. While an exact copy would be impossible, I do take commissions. My pricing is fairly reasonable, considering time and materials. send me a note if your interested.

I find steampunk genre fascinating, and some of what you've done here has helped me raise the bar in my expectations of the genre now. This device you've created definitely would certainly be in it's proper place in a professional steampunk film. Well done. :bow:

I'll be sure to check that out. But your work still has the subtlety one expects in steampunk machinery. There's usually only two levels, simplistic and over-complexity. Your pieces have a healthy balance of the two. :nod:
