Step 1: Materials needed
-medieval looking helmet (I bought mine for 45 euros at a flea market)
-crankshaft of a car (found mine in a scrapyard for 5 euros)
-some electrical wires and 2 lamp sockets
-metal tube (diameter slightly larger than the crankshaft axle diameter) and some assorted metal for the lamp support
-round base for the lamp, I used a copper dish that fit it perfectly.
Step 2: Fit the crankshaft and copper dish together
Step 3: Build the lamp and helmet support
As you can see, the metal tube isn't fixed to crankshaft with screws or welds, it turns freely.
Connect the electrical wires to the sockets and... done!
Step 4: Final assembly
Now sit back and enjoy one of the most sturdy (20 kg) and manliest lamps you'll ever see.
