Going Steampunk…kind of

The whole Steampunk movement that’s going on right now isn’t really my thing, other than having an appreciation for how creative some people are when designing their devices or costumes. Personally, I like my technology streamlined and clean, but whatever floats your boat, I suppose.

That said, I wandered through a salvage yard today, looking for gears, sprockets, chains, etc, anything that could convey the idea of Steampunk. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet, but after soaking the pieces in Simple Green, then giving them a good scrubbing to get the rest of the grease off, I think I have a few workable pieces that I can begin to tinker around with.

Gears

Pieces of Hondas, Saturns, and BMWs, oh my.
