Not all fluffy art at frailloop.

So much for blogging every week. Holidays got in the way. The unit next door has a motorcycle painter. If he's not painting bikes, he's playing with his toys. If I understood bikes I would tell you what they are. I don't. However some parts are very rare - I was very pleased to make one of the pieces shown here. Basically I chopped it out of a piece of steel - with the hacksaw, angle-grinder and file. Carefully drilled out the holes and even cut the thread. It now lives inside one of his bikes, and the throttle cable is held firmly in the right place.

Pixar inspired. Not being a qualified electrician it's not a lamp, but the customer will be visiting the sparky next!

Eay Up ...

This fella has been around the studio for about 18 months. Been re-worked a couple of times as it just didn't feel right. But a few pieces of metal came out of the skip and it clicked.
