Ok....so this thread go me thinking.... I've got a mole in a ziplock baggie in my freezer awaiting preservation. Not sure what to do with him, since
they just kind of look like harry turds, but he is in great condition. So I could cut a square out of its back, preserve it, then instead of doing
the typical mount I would leave the 'hatch' open with a hinge and you could see mechanical parts within. Then have the whole shebang in a shadow
So...where would be the best source for approximately 2"x1" of mechanical bits? Preferably antique-y and already put together in a mechanism. Or
would I have to just get a bunch of loose gears and assemble them myself? I've noticed newer clocks/watches have lame guts...plastic and ugly. Do
older clocks/watches have better parts?
Another possibility would be to get a wind up toy then mount the mole hide ON it. Lol! Then you could wind it up and it could drive around.
Which is better steampunk/science-y or funny?
