Steampunk - Goggles (Howto)

airships, steam engines and gears wherever you look.
impressive machines and small mechanical marvels.
assembled by inventors with strange goggles on.
googles through which they see the world with other eyes.


Here we go:
What kind of glasses we need?

The glasses should have interchangeable lenses.
The glasses should not be too overweight.
The glasses should be completely disassembled into individual parts.
The glasses should fit perfect.
The glasses should be worn with a belt, or just as a glasses.

what we do not want is a toilet paper roll solution.
no carnival glasses which disintegrates after a few days.
By that I mean, the glasses should be stable and looking noble.
As if it comes from the steampunk dimension itself.

As an inventor I collect many things.
I had to look too long in the basement until I found something suitable.
I discovered a coffee cup made of brass.
The perfect source material.

So here we go..

Step 1: Building the base

Cut a metal (or brass) cup into two parts without damaging the handle.
Bending the cup until it has the form of a glasses.
Grind and polish the cup until it shines and is as thin as possible.
As I have just drawn in the picture below.

Step 3: Goggels cover

Picture of Goggels cover
The lenses are fixed with screws. so that the lenses do not scratch the glasses we need a protective coating
we now add a leather holder.

As a good inventor should be able to deal with needle and thread.

Very good work. I think that you should make about 3 sets of goggles and incorporate aspects from this set...not a criticism perse, but there appears to be too much going on with this one set...
Top notch work though, old chap!
