I'll start this here and let it be moved if deemed appropriate.

A Gentlemen who resides in London wrote me to ask how much I might charge to etch a particular image onto an Altoids tin as I have done before in The Steampunk Workshop.

I replied that my doings there were my antidote to work and I was loathe to accept such a proposition as it would turn my mode of relaxation into work itself.

However, it occurs to me that someone here might relish the opportunity, if so PM me and I will forward your email addresses to him.

Cheers!

Jake.

*Headscratch*  Cheesy

Not sure either where this one belongs, so it will stay here for the time being. 'Services wanted' sounds a bit like Trading though.  Wink

July 19th, 02009: Lab project delayed. Local home 'improvement' stores have apparently stopped carrying any kind of quality DIY materials... Huh
July 15th, 02009: Much progress was made today on clearing out my future laboratory, yet there is a ways to go still.

I though so as well, but the "Makers" are all here.  I thought perhaps it might hang out here a while and then move to trading.  I suspect that this may not be a unique thing. 

Cheers,

Well, Mr. Von Slatt, making a living doing steampunkery would be a dream come true... so... I seriously should contemplate this offer.

Too bad I have no experience in this sort of thing, and getting up to speed might take too long for this gentleman, unfortunately.

*sigh*


Darn it!

As a side note to this, I am quite interested in two things I have seen here, though I have neither the room in my home, nor the workspace to attempt it on my own.  Those things being the brass keyboard I saw, and the trilobyte brooch.  I very much would like to own a similar piece in both regards, and would be willing to pay decently to have them done.  If someone here is interested in this, I can be reached at faraque at gmail dot com.  Please feel free to contact me regarding this, especially you Mr. Von Slatt.  I realize it's a form of creative outlet, and not something you want to do as a stressor, but I would love nothing more than to proudly use such a device as you have shown on this forum (referencing the keyboard) or wear as you have shown as well (referencing the brooch).

I thank you for your time in this, and I shall be checking back here over the next couple days should anyone reply to this message here.
