Vacuum Arachnid No 7
completed November 19, 2013
visit www.amechanicalmind.com for more news, and special features!

Vacuum Arachnid created with recycled watch parts and an old vacuum tube. The body of this arachnid is composed of an old electronic vacuum tube. Copper connectors at the bottom of the tube provide a base to which the legs can be attached.The legs themselves are made with recycled watch strap springs (the type that holds a watch strap or band to the watch itself) along with small watch winding stems acting as supporting struts for the legs.

Size is 60mm wide by 62mm deep by 60mm 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.
