That is nearly true, but Volker himself is the team  Wink  All I could contribute was a drawing and some mesurements!

BTW: He created that virtually overnight - I could hardly believe it!

Hello Peter,

on the image of the base and the side frames of you to see.
Yes, the parts of you have become excellent, so I saw it as teamwork.
I was already clear that the wheels are just like my lamp housing alone by Volker.

Hello gents

Martys wonderful Shay in mind I moved to brass for my recent attempts too, as the cast parts for the bearings have really unconventional shapes.  Here some in-progress pics ...








Cheers, Peter

Very clean work. I especially like the strange shaped item. How did you achieve the shapes?

WOWZERS!
The soldering looks like tine weld fillets!
I have no idea what we are looking at but they sure are nice.
Kind of reminds me of some sort of waterfall art.

Hi Volker
It is brass cut from Tamiya Masking Tape patterns, hammered over a wooden form:

Thanks Marty
The traces of hand-made work have to disappear, as these "balconies" were, in fact, cast-iron fittings supporting the bearings of the vertical shafts and their bevel gears (see photo below). I will have to round off sharp edges and corners with some sort of putty.
I do not know exactly what type of putty will work on brass Huh

Peter,

A smal jeweler's file should work for rounding off the edges and corners. 
To give a cast iron look give them a very light , orange peel finish followed by a very light spray from at least 18" away.  Allow to dry some then repeat the light spray. This will build up in tiney spots that look like a casting. For aged bare casting look use alternate red (brown) primer and black (charcoal) primer then follow the rusting methods used on this forum.

Some weeks ago, at least I received some better scans from the local archive. The first enjoyment has been quickly followed by some disillusionment: my interpretation of some of the details (e.g. the cast parts for the bearings) do not match exactly. How much time I had put in this work...  Sad Sad Sad









But I did not hang my head, focused in the meantime on one of the large gear wheels a an exercise how to do all the other bevel gears.

Here some pics:









Hope to show some casting results soon!
