Scorpion

Recommended Posts

I found a clutch fork in the scrap and it immediately suggested the body of a scorpion. The nippers are a couple of pairs of Wiss snips and a bit of old bike chain makes the tail. Rebar in the forge forms the legs. The third pic is after a clear coat was applied. The sting (Pic 4) is interesting - it's the handle end of a 12" bastard file, and maybe that has just given me an idea for a name for this one. ;)

Looks great Aus!

The snips made great claws.

I have a couple of those forks that I had thought look like a good scorpion body but I've been holding off because of another thought of using them as lower jaws for deer heads. 

I think a name like that would fit. :)

Das, put those two clutch forks together, one reversed above the other and you have the makings if a great crocodile head.

Just noticed what's stamped on the piece that makes the stinger, and thought it quite appropriate.

JHCC: That's why I chose that particular file. Of course, I could call him Wilt in accordance with Wiltshire on the other side.

olf: I think you would do more damage to the shoe!

Yes, they are in great demand. The thing is, every one is different and I always want to keep them.

Took it along to demos today and could have sold him a dozen times. Guess I'll just have to make more. Not enough hours.
