Well, as always, tradera can be your friend. I just got this home for example. You have to be lucky to get an antique-looking swivel chair though... And I strongly suspect that if you find one, it'll be very expensive.

I think you are right. Heh, they say it's a monocle but the picture clearly shows it's a pair of glasses!


Yes, I informed the seller that it was in fact a pince-nez and not at all a monocle :)

     Vienna

I certainly wouldn't disapprove! I'm a hoarder and an opportunist, so having potentially useful stuff around is appreciated.
Sure, that would be great. You can PM me to discuss it further.

     Dear Ivan,

     I got your pattern, but seem to be having a problem contacting you on my other e-mail.

I was in Malmo last year for a visit. One of the trinket shops sold rather nice cog styled jewelery. It was in the square full of bars. I can't recall the name of the square. I'll go look on google earth and pin point it.

Vienna has most graciously offered to send me some clothing patterns.
I am at present time unsure exactly what kinds we are talking about, save that they are steampunk friendly.

Any chance i might be able to get some copies?

I must confess a certain prowess with the sewing machine and the simpler needle and thread.

I belive it is very possible. I am unsure how restricted the messurements are. It will probably be quite a while before I receive them. Say, about two weeks or so?

Thats quite alright :)

I have no funds to pay you the postage yet anyway.

And since i went to tailoring school (sic) i will probably have no trouble adapting the pattern to my rather corpulent carcass.

The postage for some sheets of paper? Don't worry. It's on me.

Now now boys. I told you; the patterns won't be here for weeks. We'll get back to the subject once they arrive. Anyone interested should be able to benefit from them. We take care of our own. ^_Q

Even though its Ivan thats getting the patterns i must thank you as well Fräulein Fahrmann.

now onto something completely different.
How many of us turnips has a pair of brassgoggles?Can one get by with only one pair? The reason I'm asking is that I'm endeavoring to build some for my self to start with and if I'm successful to offer some pairs up for sale.

This will commence as soon as i can get my hands on a new small blowtorch and some more silversolder and/or lowtemp brasing rods.

I do not own a single pair of goggles. I have yet to find a pair that looks sufficiently old / steampunk for my taste. I would be interested in purchasing a pair of hand made ones, were the price right. I have lots of other safety glasses, though. They are neither nice to look at nor through. I have seen more swedes about who haven't registered. Perhaps I should run a more serious register here? An initial post with a list of users with their names a cleverly disguised link to their profile? It would be nifty, but I am unsure of its point.

Neither do I (I have always been more for the gentleman look ;)) but I'd also be interested in hand made ones if they were reasonably priced...

I don´t have any goggles either. They just don´t seem victorian for me.

If I ever get a pair of goggles (I'm very picky) I'll be restricted to wearing them on the hat anyway, since putting my strange prescription lenses in them would be awfully costly.
