Made to resemble the Adam Syringe's that the Little Sister's in the video game Bioshock use. I started playing the games and became enamored with the world and all the hodgepodge items throughout it. Ive seen many versions of this build but I decided to try my hand at it.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gas Pump
To begin with i ordered an antique gas pump from ebay for pretty cheap. I did very little modification to it since its pretty much how it should be. The only real modification i did to it was to drill a hole in the top metal piece in order to attach the "adam" jar.
Step 2: Jar
The jar i used was a salad dressing jar that i had finished. The only thing i did to the jar was drill a hole in the lid to attach to the gas pump. The "adam" is mens shampoo with some red Smooth-on So-Strong pigment mixed into it.
Step 3: Needle
The needle is a .5" diameter rod that i hand forged to a point.
Step 4: Cap Piece
The cap piece where the little sisters "drink the adam" is turned from two pieces of maple with a baby bottle rubber sucker thing sandwiched between them to hold it in. I simply glued it onto the jar at the end.
Step 5: Painting
For paint i wanted to age the piece to make it look like an antique brass/bronze instead of the silver metal it was originally, so i used gold hammered spray paint with some spritzing of black to give it that weathered look.
