Hi These are brilliant do you sell these? Or can you recommend places to buy similar glasses in the UK.Please let me know.Thanks

UNDEADLY (author)2013-07-23

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

gogglerman (author)UNDEADLY2013-07-23

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

scots72 (author)2012-04-23

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

gogglerman (author)scots722012-04-26

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

scots72 (author)2012-04-19

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

gogglerman (author)scots722012-04-20

I think it was part of electrical switches

Chemicus (author)2012-01-12

That´s amazing ggod work and I like to get one! I would take in a vitrine in the living room. Too good to wear!

The Chemist!

ShamWerks (author)2011-10-23

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?

gogglerman (author)ShamWerks2011-10-23

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

didgitalpunk (author)gogglerman2011-10-25

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.

the_lonely_snake (author)2011-10-20

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

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;)

didgitalpunk (author)gogglerman2011-10-24

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

gogglerman (author)didgitalpunk2011-10-24

I just use a translator intelligently;)

didgitalpunk (author)gogglerman2011-10-25

hmmmm. that is smart ;)

didgitalpunk (author)gogglerman2011-10-24

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 :)

gogglerman (author)didgitalpunk2011-10-24


blanchae (author)gogglerman2011-10-23

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

gogglerman (author)blanchae2011-10-23

You are right. This is one reason.

Two by two... hands of blue...

srogers5 (author)2011-10-23

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?

gogglerman (author)srogers52011-10-23

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

srogers5 (author)gogglerman2011-10-24

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

gogglerman (author)srogers52011-10-24

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

Ludwig Von Mech (author)2011-10-24

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

sflemming (author)2011-10-24

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

gogglerman (author)sflemming2011-10-24

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

artefacter (author)2011-10-23

I congratulate you. again you noticed.

pjotrkuh (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?

gogglerman (author)pjotrkuh2011-10-23

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

jmarquez7 (author)2011-10-23

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

gogglerman (author)jmarquez72011-10-23

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

snoopindaweb (author)2011-10-23

Broat - Broat.!

gogglerman (author)aBugBot2011-10-23

Gracias. Me alegro que te haya gustado.

MandingaRes (author)2011-10-21

Solo por curiosidad: Si éste es tu hobby, cual es tu profesión?

gogglerman (author)MandingaRes2011-10-21

Yo trabajo en finanzas.

Tinker83 (author)2011-10-21

MandingaRes (author)2011-10-20

Mis más sinceras felicitaciones!!

gogglerman (author)MandingaRes2011-10-20

Gracias por tu comentario emocional :)

imBobertRobert (author)2011-10-20

you should switch out the green and yellow disks for blue and red disks. make great 3d glasses! :)

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

then the world shall now bee seen in the new vision of double 3-d!

Honus (author)2011-10-19

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

gogglerman (author)Honus2011-10-19

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 :)

Honus (author)gogglerman2011-10-19

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!

gogglerman (author)Honus2011-10-20

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