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
Step 1: Wood Working
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.
Step 2: Metal Working
The special radio tube which is working as an amplifyer will be put into a steampunked "smoking-tube" which you can create with the parts of a petrol lamp burner some pieces of brass wire (2mm) and an ediscon "centra"-socket E27 as you can see at the pictures below.
Step 3: The Way the Sound Comes Out of the Horn
Step 4: Electronic Working
To get an another impression of placing the tube you can see ist at step 10 of this older instructable of mine.
Step 5: Final Works
And now bearly everything is done except.....
........listening to this wonderful "brassy" sound of the Steampunked Aethervox-machine.
Thank you very much for studying this instructable
