Watch Parts Spider No 90
created February 20, 2018

Spider No 90 was made with recycled watch parts and a green 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.

To make the body of the spider, two watch spring barrel covers have been domed, and to these are attached pincers of cut and sanded balance wheels and eyes made from watch winding crowns and stems. An 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 90 measures 43mm wide by 42mm front to back by 25mm 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.
