this is pretty awesome !!!!!!!!!!!:)

anewsholme (author)2013-12-03

By the way, you have an absolutely incredible talent. What is the time frame for a piece like this one?

anewsholme (author)2013-12-03

Ok so I only have one question. How and or where did you learn to do this kind of work?
Are you an engineer, machinist, or just hobbyist? Alright so its a two part question, shoot me. :p

J.A.R.V.I.S. (author)2012-05-21

Just incredible. You need to make an instructable for this.

beantean (author)J.A.R.V.I.S.2013-10-28

Yes! Please do!!

beantean (author)2013-10-28

Please elaborate how to make the iris!!

jmccoppin (author)2013-07-29

Awesome work. I've learned a lot just by looking at the pictures!

TorakRennLykos (author)2012-12-15

I must say, this is the greatest steampunk themed piece I've come across so far on instructables. From the finish to the irising lens, it's a masterpiece. You will have had this posted several times, and I appreciate you may not want to, but if you could make an instrucable for this marvelous contraption, I, and most likely the majority of instructables, would be greatly obliged.

Amazing. Just, Amazing.

The Rambler (author)2012-02-03

These are magnificent.

SadXiao (author)2012-02-01

You, sir, are a genius and an inspiration to me.
Hopefully, when I have the time and the materials, I can try to imitate one of these and give goggle-making a shot myself.
Kudos to the great work, and keep it up! :)

gogglerman (author)SadXiao2012-02-01

I wish you every success. Thank you.

Piribous (author)2012-01-15

If you have plans to sell it in the future please let me know about that :3

DynamicSandwich (author)2011-12-07

if you were to sell them how much would you sell them for??

I have not thought about it. (author)2011-12-02

I have to say, after flipping through most of the creations you have posted, this has to be my favorite, I was wondering though, how much does it cost to make something like this?

This is one of my first craft of steampunk. I like it too, but today would make it better :)
About the price. I've never sold my works, I do not know how much they cost.
Thank you.

If you ever did consider selling something like this I would definitely be interested because it's freakin sweet

If I sell my work, I'll let you know about this anywhere )

steamlad8 (author)2011-11-13

hey can you show us pics of how you make them please cus they look amazing

BrrD_RAWR (author)2011-11-03

I commend you for your beautiful craftsmanship. There are few craftsmen left in this world that take such care and pride in their work. Well done.

gogglerman (author)BrrD_RAWR2011-11-03

Thank you for your praise. I am very pleased)

wwilliams6 (author)2011-10-09

IMPRESIVE MOST IMPRESIVE. Very good work I applaude your paitiance. While I understand the metal working and have been inspired to build a pair. I would first ask your permition to do so. can you recomend a resorce for the leather work such as a book on how to do this kind of leather work? the meatal work is not a problem. I just havent worked with leather.


gogglerman (author)wwilliams62011-10-09

No problem. I hope you will show us their work.
My experience with the leather, alas, is small, I probably would not be able to perform the role of advisor here. Just try it, it's easier than you think. Good luck.

bcotton (author)2011-10-01

WOW, those goggles are awesome =D

the "wow shammy" (author)2011-09-08

did you weld or solder the brass together?

in this project, used soft solder (tin) solder

kmeland (author)2011-08-19

ok i wanna buy them complete.. WHERE TO!?

polymythic (author)2011-08-13

Simply gorgeous work. I see a lot of steampunkers who dig the costume, but I know that Hackers/Makers/Tinkerers are the real deal who may actually need kick-butt goggles. If I could pick a set of goggles, yours would be the ones. Great job.

kommodore (author)2011-08-11

Do you use a lathe and/or mill to fabricate some of the pieces? little bolts and gears? Your work is really impressive, i cant stop watching all those goggles!


gogglerman (author)kommodore2011-08-11

Thank you.
I don't have a turning or milling machines. I use only electric hand tool.
Only in this way. Handmade:)

kommodore (author)2011-08-11

OMG this is def my fauvorite one, what a masterpiece sir, what a masterpiece.

monsterlego (author)2011-08-05

super awesome,were do you get your materials?

gogglerman (author)monsterlego2011-08-05

Buy them. I try not to use recycle.

magicgeek14 (author)2011-07-26

How much would it cost to buy online with shipping and handling? Because I live in the united states. please reply back.

gogglerman (author)magicgeek142011-07-26

I Am Sorry. While I don't sell my work and do them for his own pleasure. This is not a business. May be later.

magicgeek14 (author)2011-07-25

if you were to buy these kind of goggles where would you buy them? please answer back.

gogglerman (author)magicgeek142011-07-26

In my own workshop. Probably only there ;)

magicgeek14 (author)gogglerman2011-07-26

how much would I have to pay for a pair?

gmjhowe (author)2010-12-23

Hey Excellent work! Thank you very much for coming and sharing. Firstly, the youtube video you posted, you should be able to embed into the description of the slideshow.

Secondly, I really encourage you to make a full instructable, showing people how you made these!

aweis (author)gmjhowe2011-06-15

i am both for and against the making of instructables for this, for the simple reason that it would often lack creativity in the reproductions people make. however i would prefer posting to say how to desighn and make goggles. and the basics of it without the full description. inspiring people to b more creative with it. instead of dozens of duplicates.

gogglerman (author)gmjhowe2010-12-23

Thanks. Has corrected a topic

pacoreguenga (author)2011-05-05

I have seen your work and have nothing but praise and admiration for you. Where are you hiding your time machine, by the way?

gogglerman (author)pacoreguenga2011-05-05

My "time machine" is in the backyard. I use it from time to time ; )

pacoreguenga (author)gogglerman2011-05-05

Yeah! Figured so! You are really awesome! You know?

gogglerman (author)pacoreguenga2011-05-05

Thank you. I am pleased to hear this.

aweis (author)gogglerman2011-06-14

yes incredible, craftsmanship and determination.

ljones6 (author)gogglerman2011-05-29

PLEASE MAKE AN INSTRUCTABLE!!! I want to make these for halloween badly
