Ladies and gentlemen. I offer you my new project.
About 80 individual parts, more than 60 man-hours spent on implementation.
Ultra flexible design, complete anatomical adaptation.
Natural authentic materials and technology.
Photos of the process are attached.

Great job, they look totally realistic and usable. I would like to use one of the photos for my scrapbook project! Well done.

Ok, I have to ask after seeing the third project from you Gogglerman, how do you do it? I'm one who learns best from step by step instructions. From what I can see of your pictures you do a lot of metalworking for fashion the pieces for your projects. Could you offer some more information about the early steps in the process? How do you go about your design and then where do you find the raw materials to use? Excellent work! Top Notch! Movie Quality! Hope you find satisfaction in your hobby because as stated before you could easily sell these for a profit. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing your next project!
Absolutely phenomenol! I have never seen craftsmanship as absolutely terrific and skillful as yours. Keep the instructables comming!

I wish that "steampunk" would just go away! It has outlived its novelty, though I never did like it. Sorry
gogglerman (author)  mdriver22 years ago
It is pleasant that the announcement of an unexpected political statement you chose my instructables.
Thank you;)

Some have already modeled. With regard to authorship, it is again not specified.

Wow! Kool gear! It's a shame not to be on age to wear so an amazing piece of art gear,on the other hand it makes me wondering...
gogglerman (author)  electronfan2 years ago
I do not wear these goggles, I like to do things like this .
Dbean2 years ago
Great set of Goggles .. I would not mind a pair of them myself..
Do you sell these little gems? If you do what would you charge?
Great stuff keep up the good work !! Don Fl
gogglerman (author)  Dbean2 years ago
Thanks for the comment, but I do not sell my work. I'm sorry.
I have 2 things to say

WOW

If you need more instructions than these phenomenal step by step photos, this project is beyond you. Go develop some skills in this area. Numchuck skills aren't going to cut it :P

You use a torch on that? i use propane and acetylene torches at school in metal-tech and i burn holes through things and my welds/solders are messy as hell. You are a master.
gogglerman (author)  vopo2 years ago
Here I have used propane torch. Acetylene is not needed. Thx
vopo gogglerman2 years ago
Cheers :) Ill give it a go one day, but it wont resemble anything like yours :P
Very nice project! I can imagine how long it would take to do that. If you don't mind me asking what kind of solder are you using? (is it silver solder or plumbing solder?) also are you pickling the parts after you oxidize them with a torch or just scrubbing them off?

Anyhow thanks for the photos I can't wait to try some of this stuff out.
gogglerman (author)  nightninja132 years ago
I'm using different solders. It is in this project used solder Ag 104 (L-Ag 45 Sn), his love refrigerator repairmen. As part of the solder contained 45 percent silver. The surfaces were polished and patinated parts gaseous ammonia, to give them a used look. Thank you.

Did you scavenge the parts or did you have to fab them yourself?
gogglerman (author)  tukas2 years ago
All parts are made ​​by me.
It would have been great to see HOW you made them. The only thing that the photos really do is prove that you made it. The reason I am on Instructables is to learn HOW to make things. If I wanted to see art, which this clearly is, I would go to a different website. But very nice work! Please, share your method of fabrication. Or are you just trying to tease us? :-)
gogglerman (author)  cargorilla2 years ago
Tease you? I've grown out of that time, when someone is that it is necessary to prove. I'm just sharing with the community so that did, and try to show how I did it. A full description of all the works would take a very long time. I show pictures that I've done from time to time, for those who might be interested. To those who asked specific questions about the project, I try to respond in accordance with its language capabilities.
Sorry that did not meet your expectations.
I'm sorry, I was just joking. You are obviously very knowledgeable and I really appreciate your posting the beautiful objects you make. Do you think perhaps you could post something about how you fabricated the two pieces that form the adjustable "nosebridge" part? Did you cast them, or cut them out of bar stock, or how? Do you use a dremel tool extensively? Also, it would be great to understand how you attached the little "studs" to the side of the brass clip. Thank you for your help and for passing down to us very important knowledge we can all use.
gogglerman (author)  cargorilla2 years ago
OK. The part connecting the halves of the bridge consists of three parts (round, set perpendicular to the edge, and the threaded rod from the bottom). Parts are cut from brass sheet of 3-4 mm. soldered together with silver solder, through a propane torch.
For machining brass, mostly I use Dremel 300 series.
About the "studs" I do not understand what you mean.
I agree with cargorilla! With me the biggest hurdle is to make the 'parts' of the whole. It is difficult for me to even know where to start or where to acquire base components.

This is beautiful. I have my doubts that I could accomplish something as fine as this even with instructions. Without instructions I have no chance.

I made infinity of those at summer camp.
ha ha ha. A Napoleon Dynamite quote is appropriate in any situation.
gogglerman (author)  twhaley2 years ago
I have no doubt.

Beautiful design and fantastic execution- I applaud your talent!
arkie2 years ago
Sir;

Your restrained and elegant replies to the comments are refreshing.

Thank you for your supplemental, albeit unintentional, 'instructable' on how to respond most graciously.

Sincere admiration for your work.
I would like applause GOGGLERMAN for his workmanship and his instructable. At the same time I would like to take this opportunity to say to all those that are complaining to spend more time in a shop and less time in front of a screen bitching. He just finished saying that he spent over 60 hours at this project I'm sure he's the type of person that would rather work in his shop than sit in front of his computer. You should be thanking him for taking the time posting those beautiful pictures. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words...

Beautiful workmanship and design.

How do you get the polished brass finish? Are the parts actually brass or were they treated to look that color?

Very nice!

gogglerman (author)  Kevin117212 years ago
Brass parts were treated with sandpaper and polished felt around and polishing compound.
I'm guessing someone is associated with the plumbing crafts.

gogglerman (author)  Kevin117212 years ago
I'm not a plumber, if you have had in mind. However, to repair the faucet, I'll be able to ;)
And or old clockworks.
