This was a friday night project I run out quickly to solve a problem - the problem being a cheap electronic component test meter I purchased, needed a case to keep the bare electronics safe. So if I'm building a case, why not make it steampunk (even though this is a part of my electronics work bench tools)... Wink















Rather usefully, the brass handle on the top (used to hang this on a hook at my bench) also folds down and tucks under the base to elevate the top end of the meter as it lays flat on the bench, which gives a better angle to view the LCD screen while working with it. Bonus! Grin


Yeah I know it not a very "steampunky" device, but I have to keep it somewhat practical as I use this a lot for checking old an unknown component values. Still, I tried to make it look as old and beaten out of shape as some of my real Victorian era wooden tools are. It was just a fun 30 minutes project using the random crap I had spread around my work desk area. Cheesy

Now you need to make a steampunk "anomaly detector" a la the Ghost Adventures series, using basically the same device. And as far as looks, it's actually a lot like the stuff that people were making back in the early days of the SP movement.

I though that was a Steampunk Trichorder...

Yes- nice workings around the modern bits  Wink.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that uses the excuse to SP up any little thing that needs knocking up!
