Watch Parts Spider No 99
created February 19, 2019

Spider No 99 was made with recycled watch parts and a green automotive bulb.

In order to create the legs, thirty-two 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, six spring bars have been cut and soldered together. 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 98 measures 54mm wide by 41mm front to back by 18mm 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.
