“So, one evening every week, Winston spent four hours of paralysing
boredom, screwing together small bits of metal which were probably parts
of bomb fuses, in a draughty, ill-lit workshop where the knocking of
hammers mingled drearily with the music of the telescreens.”
George Orwell - Nineteen Eighty-Four
Yep, the conditions for serious and dirty work i have are quite poor.
„The Black Mesa compound is maintained at a pleasant sixty-eight degrees at all times”
But i can always work at home.
So i began with the easy stuff – i cut with the dremmel the unneeded parts on the webcam body. They will be no use for them anyhow.
Disassembled the umbrella, removed the fabric, threw away the sheet from the web cleaner and cleaned the shafts from the blue foam covering them.
At some point i wanted to use the sprocket-wheels but i did not figure our an adequate use for them.
I scanned the net to find good pictures of the City Scanners, i needed a source for aquiring some even not so acurate dimentions and apperance for all of the parts that had to be made.
