Hey, I need the least complicated way to build a stainless steel hollow ball with a large radius. Like the one in the image. Can I get some ideas?
ok, so, When I was in college, I opened my dumb mouth and said I'd make something and I don't know how and I don't wanna anymore but honor call me to follow through. It is, Navi...from the video game. This fairy tale creature, a fairy herself, is a sphere with wings attached. http://zeldawiki.org/Navi I forged out a ball from half a RR spike with lousy tongs on a piece of RR rail. It was like a 5 hour process. Then I made wings and textured them (it is very important for them to be textured) and had a guy braze them on because I didn't know what I was doing. Anyways, during polish I dropped the durn thing and it broke so I set it aside for a while and I LOST THE DARN BALL!!! Also the wings. So now starting from scratch and knowing how I don't want to do it, any ideas? I was thinking make a ball and drill a hole in it (How to do so safely?), then put a rivet through and rivet the wings on, grinding everything flush and finishing the wings with a brass brush to help cover it up, but that's all the farther I got with that line of thought. I just want something more substantial than the small area of braze with those big lever arms hangin off the thing. P.S. I received in exchange a groovy, hand crocheted sonic the hedgehog ski hat...it's amazing...thus the bound by honor thing. edit: the wings were all one piece, not 4 separate ones like shown in some pics.
