Process by bug-in-my-eye Process by bug-in-my-eye
I've had a lot of people ask how I've done what I do. Here's an example of one of the things I've done in my projects. I hope this answers some questions, and I will try to remember to take more in progress photos, I'm just always so caught up in what I'm doing I forget I have a camera to keep a visual memory of what I did.

I see - did you do your leaf ring the same way ?

very similar! Instead of pressing the gears I pressed a leaf with really strong veins and did it with a sheet roller instead of the press.

advice: to avoid problems whit "stuff" who stuck, try to grease them with fine oil before you press them. check before if the "thing" you want to press into a shape have "dove tail"(the edge of the object is like a nut and once presed it wont come out).

p.s.: i like it!

I didn't have issues with the parts that weren't steel. The steel embedded itself and then broke, so it was harder to get out of the silver.
But I will keep that in mind!
