Comments: This little bugger is most of the reason I didn't have time for anything online since December. It was my term project for ME203: Manufacturing and Design. Most of it was carved in wax and cast in Silicon Bronze; the straight shaft down the center is yellow brass. I think I spent about 20 hours carving, 20 hours casting, and 50 hours sanding/polishing/finishing. @_@ (And about $300 in materials/fees for this ONE class too.) Ah, bittersweet memories...
