Toasted knuckes and monster spiders.

So I had a chance to turn everything on and melt some stuff, first on the list was my knuckle hair, I need to be a little more careful. Today I just tried a couple of small soldering jobs, this new torch is going to be amazing, it will make a huge difference in how I solder tiny pieces. The pin vises I ordered are fantastic as well, allowing me to grip small pieces without having to shape my finger nails into vises... which never worked the way I thought it might.

I took a few pictures of my bench, it's pretty basic, just an old counter top I found for free on the side of the road and a few 2x4's. It seems like it'll be enough space, I will need to build some shelves though.


This probably is the cleanest it will ever look. I do try to keep things relatively organized, it makes life a lot easier when looking for tools and parts, and anything for that matter.



Oh yeah, my makeshift ventilation/escape route/light source is also home to hundreds of filthy spiders. There can't possibly be enough bugs for all of them to live off of, so I'm sure they are eating each other, and carefully eyeing me from behind as I work. You can't see them in the picture, but trust me... they are there...

The workshop looks awesome. Maybe you can draw inspiration from those creepy spiders for your next piece...

"Arachna Machina"?

Thats actually a pretty cool idea. Or I could use the spiders to power engines.
