Mechanical Spider No 19 by AMechanicalMind Mechanical Spider No 19 by AMechanicalMind

This is a Mechanical Spider hand assembled from recycled watch parts including gears, watch plates, winding stems, and spring barrels.

Spider No 19 presents a new design for my spider creations. Rather than the body being just soldered together stems and spring barrels, it consists of a chassis-like assembly made with watch plates connected by stems. Onto this chassis are soldered the spring barrels and stems for eyes, the legs, the red Christmas tree light bulb and a few gears for added mechanical effect.

Each leg consists of four different watch winding stems that have been cut down to size and soldered at the joint. Each leg has three soldered joints.

After the legs have been soldered individually, they are grouped into sides, and each side is soldered together. The sides are then soldered to the body chassis.

Therefore, the legs themselves take thirty four soldered joints.

The chassis on this particular spider has around eighteen solder points, for a total of fifty-two different areas that need to be joined together.

There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.

He measures 49mm wide by 53mm front to back by 20mm tall and comes with a 3" by 4" glass display dome with wood base. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
