Gypsy / Open mine, Mike! Open mine!
« on: May 30, 2017, 04:03:05 PM »
Several years ago I bought two Century Infant Loveseats. I wound up selling one to a friend (Here's his build) and left the other one on a shelf to collect dust along with all the random Tom and Crow parts I had.

A couple weeks ago I finally decided to get off my duff and start building some bots. Since Gypsy is the furthest along, I'll post her build thread first.

First, I hacked up the seat.

I zip-tied the halves together. Mostly because the zip-ties were closer to me than my roll of tape. Also, she looks like a catfish.

I then drilled the holes for the jaw hinge. Did I mention I hate paddle bits?

After that I drilled three holes through the seat and into the Eveready lantern. I then used some lock-nut fasteners to keep them together.

It took me longer than it should have to realize that a closet flange is a toilet attachment. Nevertheless, I found one and bolted it on.

So here she is in her current state:

I'm getting a vac-formed control knob from Mitchell soon, and a spring. After that I'll begin working on the skeleton/control rig.

What do you think, sirs?

Everything else... / Will our mystery guest enter and sign in please?

I didn't see any sort of intro forum, so I figured here was as good a place as any to drop in and say "Nanu!"

I've been on the yahoo boards for a number of years now and I've been collecting parts here and there, but I've never done any building yet.  Maybe someday soon I'll finally start, but for now I'm just here to lurk, read up on builds and watch the sales threads.  :D
