    This is a neat build. However it's really just showing off an end product and doesn't give any steps on how to make this. Please update this instructable to include steps so that others can learn how to make it.

    I've had this idea for a while. it's good to see how some have come together. perhaps replace the nylon strap with elastic or leather. It kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. but great work.

     You don't have to be a kid to look great in  Steampunk attire!  Quite the opposite.

    That looks like a brass sink drain fitting. Is it? What's the leather-looking eyepiece made from?

    That is spectacular. A perfect amount of steam-punky goodness without being too cluttered or messy. Beautiful execution. I am inspired.

    Has anyone thought of doing the magical eye of Mad Eye Moody from "Harry Potter"?

    i cant make an instructable out of this. 1. because you couldnt find the same parts i used (i found them in my garage.) 2.becaues you cant do a tutorial of somthing like this. you just have to get inspired by the picture and build off of it, i just looked at the end of that pipe and thought. hey that would be a cool eye piece so then i just threw some random wire on there and glued a strap on. if you do build somthing though i would love to see a pic of it! if you do build somthing

    yea, im thinking of one rite now, but more of a whole set of goggles, cause all i see are bottle top ones or freaky nite vision ones, but i reckkon u could put this idea together with an old tripple mag microscope and have a pretty cool looking pair of goggles, ide still use the baseball as my base tho (mainly cause i just destroyed mine while playing), but yea, i'll do that and post it as slide probly, cause i neva get to taking fotos when im working.

    ok i getcha ;) I'd kind like to make a functional monocle to aid in delicate work like looking through a circuit board (my eyes aren't the best in the world thanks to my monitors.) I'm still working it through.

    That might work if your vision problems aren't too complicated. I have Myopia, Astigmatism and Presbyopia myself. That means that I couldn't get a real good monocle type viewer to work except in limited spaces and situations, like in a preset distance. I really wish I could do Alastair Moody's magical eye, however.

    No, I just have weak eyes from staring at two large monitors for hours at a time. My glasses will work just fine, but that's not as geeky as a souped up monocle!
