My first Instructable - please don´t be too hard.
I´m a dreamer and I am filled with fantasy and ideas. Most ideas stay at mine for a long time and grow to anything else, sometimes they die and somtimes there´s a spark that makes an idea impossible to wait any more.
As I found two TEACUP holders at a flaemarket for just 1 buck I knew I could´nt wait to build my own goggles.
As I understood is the meaning of the steampunk idea to design as a victorian that lives in the present. There will be many more explanations - my own stimulus was the impulse to do anything that escorts me since my childhood as I´ve seen Time Machine, 20.000 Miles under the sea or things like this.
The teacup holders were perfect to do this goggle job I wanted so first how to do this:
I wanted to have two cylinders that look forwards. To get the right angle I made a dummy of paper in the right diameter and took a sissor to cut until my papercylinder looked forward in a mirror and fitted well to my face.
You can (and should) do every leveling you can do at this point if you want to build YOUR goggles. If you feel comfortable and look straight into the mirror you have a stencil for your soldering work.
