    The original "Steampunk" thread deteriorated into a very unpleasant beast that I don't want to resurrect, so I started a new one...

    I have decided that I want to build a conventional, but "steampunk" themed slingshot. We are talking functional frame, but with lots of (useless but nice looking) steampunk elements. I have ordered all kinds of crazy parts that I want to put together.

    I thought maybe some of you guys want to join the fun and present YOUR steampunk themed frames as well?

    We could post pics of the progress.

    I have none to post, nor am I working on any, but I do look very forward to the steampunk creations of others. I think it's a very interesting style! I do think you should be in a proper top hat and coat when you present your creation though - jeans are fine :)

    Can't wait to see it! I know Steampunk is so mainstream, but I still like the style. :)

    Great idea Joerg! You are correct sir about the original and not reviving a zombie horse;). Not sure if I can contribute at the moment, I've not much free time as I have a 5 day old baby girl to take all my time now but am excited to see steampunk slingies! Maybe one thats inspired by the great Briscoe County Jr.

    Thanks Joerg! I am indeed proud. Very tired but proud, I had no clue how little sleep we'd be getting.

    BV didn't know? D - you need to do a new baby post bud. Get the word out. Good news deserves to be celebrated by an international cadre of slingshot enthusiasts!

    Hi Jörg,
    the steam punk thread made me corious for this style.
    I am just working on some stage design in that style.

    Neil Peart (Rush) got a DW drumset called "The Time Machine".

    I love steam punk more and more.
    Maybe because I read all the books of Jules Verne when I was a child.
    There was a member from Russia here in the forum who made wonderful steam punk..."things".
    Jörg do you remember the name ?

    Steampunk - Computer

    No pics yet?

    Although steam punk is pretty much about
    art nouveau, lets try a start:
    my old steampunk "computer" ;)
    a fully mechanicalyy operated calculator.
    subtraction is done on the other side..

    greetings,

    Thank you Jörg :D
    PS:
    Here you can virtually use BeMahoneys Addiator.

    I think I need such a mechanical smartphone :p
    Funny when all the people around laying their phones on the table and you... the Addiator.

    Hey Zwillie,

    I can´t believe it!- Not in my dreams I´d
    have thought THAT thing is to be found on the net..

    Thanks for finding that one!

    Hmmm, I like this idea! I wonder if I could requisition a few extra pipe fittings and then 'misplace' them into my pocket....:D
