How I built a Time Machine

Console and dish support

The beginnings of the lamp assembly and dish support. The base was obtained from another Time Machine enthusiast. The ball was molded from a plastic ball found at a hobby store. The counter balance and double cone were turned from laminated layers of pine.
Painted and assembled. The paint color chosen was brass, gold doesn't impart the correct feel to the machine. The red lamp is a current production of a Victorian edison bulb. The cage is made of brass and the washers were cast in urethane.

The tinkering mechanic checking the function of the lever into the console.
The console is made from 9" diameter acrylic tube. The end caps were vac-u-formed from milk white acrylic. The three lamps on the console are standard automotive bulbs with a blinker inline with each to flash the lights.
