You can transform it into a cool sculpture! What about a metallic being from the Outer Space, with only one eye and glowing with red light, like some kind of alien possessed toaster?
So, get some junk, because we will make an artpiece for your home!
Step 1: Cautions, Materials and Stuff
TIP: The main piece of this sculpture is a metallic and shiny toaster. You don't want to scratch its surface so, everytime you have to work in it (drilling, cutting, soldering) put a soft protection between the toaster and the table.
I used the following stuff:
2 Evoluent mice
4 metallic discs from a damaged hard drive
4 corner brace inside L (1in. x 1/2in.)
1 energy-saving 60 watt red lightbulb
1 lightbulb socket
1 Push button switch
1 discarded Nintendo 64 AC power supply
1 discarded lap top power supply
Junk (I used a fitting collar for the liquid nitrogen dewar I found in the lab, a damaged escualizable fan, a lens from a camera and a damaged stroller I found dumped in the street)
Nuts and bolts
Dremel Rotary Tool
And don't forget:
1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock.
6. Have fun!
Step 2: Dismantle the Toaster
Step 3: Legs
Step 4: Waist
Step 5: Pincers
Step 6: Arms
Step 7: Preparing the Bottom of the Toaster
Remove the bottom metallic plate and drill a hole in the center. Drill a hole in the center of the power supply case and attach both using a nut, a washer and a bolt.
Step 8: The Big Eye
Attach the camera lens to the end of the damaged batteries operated fan. Attach the case of the fan to the toaster.
Step 9: Installing the Electric Part
Install the electric part: socket, switch, powercord. The powercord has two wires: one should be connected to the socket. The other wire goes to one of the wires of the switch. The other wire from the switch goes to the socket.
Attach the bottom of the toaster to the metallic part. Insert the lightbulb.
