Watch Parts Spider No 100
created March 7, 2019

Spider No 100 was made with recycled watch parts and recycled speaker wire.

In order to create the legs, twenty-four watch spring bars and sixteen watch winding stems are cut in different sizes to simulate the organic appearance of real spiders’ legs, which vary in size and shape between species. Each of these segments is carefully arranged into a leg and
soldered at the joints with lead free, silver bearing solder.

To make the body of the spider, nine spring bars have been cut and soldered together.  To this assembly are added a few different watch plates and balance wheel assemblies for structure and embellishment.  The abdomen was made by wrapping speaker wire around a couple assemblies
made from watch train gears and balance wheels.

After the body is made, the leg assemblies are carefully arranged and attached by soldering. The legs and body are then manipulated in order to make the spider stand properly. All joints are then resoldered for added stiffness.

Spider No 100 measures 57mm wide by 50mm front to back by 21mm tall.

All creations made by A Mechanical Mind are one of a kind, never to be reproduced exactly. All parts are soldered, never glued. Each sculpture comes with a 3” wide by 4” tall glass display dome with wooden base. Sculptures are not toys and should be handled sparingly, as their
parts are tiny and delicate.

This is freaky, but in a good way.  When the aliens invade, they will spare our civilization when we show them things like this.  This is evidence that our species shows promise...

Copper Webbing would be excellent if it also had a taser.
