great work! may have missed it but how much do they weigh? just curious

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2013-07-23

Yes, they are very heavy. 300 grams. Real metal has to be "weighty")
Thx.

ok, only one more question: where do you buy colored lenses for your goggles? are they glass or plastic?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2012-04-26

No plastic. The lens cut from colored glass with a special diamond tools. Diamond Glass Hole Saw Kits Set

I love your work. Beautiful. What are the small springs (with the ball bearings) from?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2012-04-20

I think it was part of electrical switches

That's a brilliant work, congratulations! I love it!

Question though : what's the final surface treatment? Chrome plated? Silver plated maybe? Did you do it yourself or had a professional do it?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-23

There is no coverage. It's just a polished brass. In fact, the product has a glowing yellow. Photo passes wrong color)

author
didgitalpunk made it!(author)2011-10-25

actually the photos passes the yellowish coplor of brass pretty wel, it is more in the video that you could think there is a suface treatment.

AGAIN!another amazing work of yours ,:) i just wonder why do u wear gloves?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-20

Thank you. Gloves give me some mystery, and have become my signature style :)
Video, where a strange guy in a rubber-gloved hands fiddles with goggles, with nothing to confuse;)

ho and how many languages do you speak in total?????

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-24

I just use a translator intelligently;)

author
didgitalpunk made it!(author)2011-10-25

hmmmm. that is smart ;)

author
didgitalpunk made it!(author)2011-10-24

i would have thought you wore gloves so that the fingerprints you leave do not corrode the metal, so that yopur creations always look like if they were brand new.
anyway good job (again!) on this project :)

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-24

Bingo!

author
blanchae made it!(author)2011-10-23

I thought it was so you wouldn't leave fingerprints. Very nicely done and all the adjustments are well thought out. cool..

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-23

You are right. This is one reason.

Your work is brilliant, its nice to see people who still have a sense of art and talent now a days. My question is do you make these for fun or custom for people?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-23

What I do, I do for fun. It's just a hobby. Thank you.

author
srogers5 made it!(author)2011-10-24

So what do you do with these when your done? Do you display them or actually use them?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-24

Selling them all at once, in bulk, when the collection will be quite large ;)

author
Ludwig+Von+Mech made it!(author)2011-10-24

Very, very nice! I admire your skills in design and finishing. Bravo!

author
sflemming made it!(author)2011-10-24

They look kinda heavy to actually wear. But I'm very impressed with your foundry machine shop work.

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-24

Steampunk is always difficult, often uncomfortable, but always beautiful :)

I congratulate you. blog.makezine.com again you noticed.

author
pjotrkuh made it!(author)2011-10-23

Very nice job, I like the way you show how you accomplished your work.

I have 1 question though, I see you "hard" soldered the pieces together, could this be done with just tin solder and brass pieces?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-23

I used a solid silver solder with high melting points. Soft tin-lead solder here I have not used.

jmarquez7 made it!(author)2011-10-23

puedo preguntar... para que sirve esto? perdonad mi ignorancia pero estas gafas sirven para algo en especifico?

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-23

Todo es normal. Este cosplay. Es parte del traje en el estilo de Steampunk. El atributo de estilo.

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-20

No problem! Glass can be changed in minutes. Elementary.

Outstanding! I really enjoy seeing the mechanisms you fabricate. I'd love to see you tackle the HellBoy Schufftein goggles. :)

This is a great and very difficult goggles! I usually do not copy other people's work and not doing cinematic props, but maybe one day, I will repeat them. It is possible :)

author
Honus made it!(author)2011-10-19

I'm sure you would do an excellent job. :) I would like to make them one day as well but I already have far too many projects!

author
gogglerman made it!(author)2011-10-20

a large amount of work, but the project is feasible. maybe I'll find time and do it
