Introduction: Steampunk Radio Tube
small and simple guide for steampunking your radio tube.
Step 1: Tools Needed and Safety.
when working with glass you cant do without.
dremel with cutting disc
small radio tube. i used a Philips 1€
small light bulb
2 pieces of wire
2x aa battery
battery holder 95ct €
battery clip 95ct €
Step 2: Prepare Your Light Bulb.
wrap your light bulb in the plastic bag,and break the glass with the hammer. Remove everything in the fitting and at the bottom.
Step 3: The Radio Tube.
cut off the legs from the tube. 1 note:
do not push with the dremel. Just let it do its job. If you start pushing the glass will crack.
Step 4: Last Steps
after you soldered the led and resistor together you glue the tube in the fitting with super glue. It will take a few seconds but it will hold.
Push the led tru the bottom all the way up to the tube. Hold it there and fill it with hot glue. I tried super glue but that wasn't working.
