Hi everybody

Here I am again to present you my latest steampunk project.
It is called the amazing Steampunked Aethervox-machine.

This is my first construction kit project to build an FM radio. This special radio works with an amplifier tube. A very good friend of mine, Horatius Steam, gave me this kit as a present but it also can be ordered here.

You can imagine that my box housing of this radio should be a stylish steampunked one.

So I chose a former salad bowl from ikea made of bamboo some pieces of red vulcanized fiber, an old bulb horn from ebay, some parts of copper tubes, the body of a spray bottle, a burner made of brass from an old petrol lamp and some screws made of brass.

Now my instructable can start. Please follow me to my steampunk-laboratory (in german called „Dampfkraftlabor“) and watch step by step what had been created with all these things.

Hope you enjoy it

Yours Aeone Junophor

For the box house I used a salad bowl made of bamboo which I found at IKEA.
A plate of vulcanized fiber is fixe with wood glue at the top and an piece of plywood covered with  vulcanized fiber will be the bottom.

This is another wonderful project from you I'm glad I am the first to comment, it was a good idea to relocate the tube to outside the box, the light bulb sockets detract from the quality of your work though.

Hi longwinters
Thanks for your words.
This project was the last one of 2012. I am of the opinion that especially these bulb sockets give a closer impression instead of simply using the black coloured plastic knobs. I kike them very much;-)))

When I look through the second hand shops old knobs is one thing I always look for, I almost never find them, I wish in my day to day life that such small differences were all I encountered, blessings, Bill

Hi Longwinters

I also keep my eyes open to old radio knobs and sometimes I have luck.
Then my elder brother makes a copy-form with silicone and "produces" some copies with white Epoxy resin. These will be colored (mostliy in black or dark brown) and then I can use them in my projects

Lots of greetings from old europe
your buddy

A very beautiful radio. Where do you get the horn?
