From another project (not yet published) I have crankshatf from Lancia Lybra (Italian car).

So I made table lamp.

Step 1: What You Need

1. cranshaft

2. pipe clip (pic.2)

3. another table lamp - donor parts

4. shade

5. nuts and bolts

6. felt

7. clear paint

8. some metal parts

tools: angle grinder, drill with metal brush, screwdriver

and the most importanat: time for working, photographing and translation

Step 2:

Cut off unwanted parts from crankshaft.

To the base glue a piece of felt (its secure table from scratches).

Clean the rust from crankshaft- using the drill with steel brush.

Paint with transparent varnish (paint).

Step 3: Mounting Bulb Holder

Mount pipe clips to the crankshaft.

Dissasemble table lamp - donor parts and mount on the crankshaft what you need parts (pipe clips, bulb holder).

Step 4: Finish

Install light bulb, lamp shade, electric cable.

Check the lamp.

In the free spaces on the crancshaft (piston position) you can place book, cell phone, gadgeds, etc.

<p>I love designs like these! Really cool!</p>
<p>very nice, too bad you can't push the wire thru the middle of the crankshaft. Maybe use black wire instead</p>
<p>I thought about it.</p><p>I plan to lead the cable in the middle of chain of bicycle. </p><p>Also you can paint the wire.</p>
