Clockwork Spider No 89
created February 14, 2018

Spider No 89 was made with recycled watch parts and a blue automotive bulb.

In order to create the legs, thirty-two watch stems must be 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. Each side of four legs is then soldered together at the base, forming what looks like a claw.

To make the body of the spider, several watch strap springs were soldered together, and to that a watch balance bridge is attached. A blue automotive bulb is very carefully removed from its metal base and soldered to the body chassis by its lead wires.

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 89 measures 59mm wide by 49mm front to back by 22mm 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.
