I imagine you could hide a gun in the split, and the hole that your index finger goes into would have the trigger~

Thank you! Rivets are so much better looking than screws, but really not nearly as versatile. So many fasteners out there, just aviation riveting works for now :)

Very cool think! I really like the look of the metal!

Yeah, I age/oxidize as oppose to paint, natural coloring, each piece takes a life of its own. Thanks!

It *does* make it look very realistic. I wish I could do that too! unfortunately I'm not that much into metallics and have to take refuge with paint, even if real oxidation would be one thousand times better! Count yourself lucky!

You can get metal paint, like paint that is metal, ages, rusts, oxidizes, etc. For example: [link]

Lots of neat tricks to metal paints that are cool!

So you used paint and no real metal?

I only use metal and no paint, metal is the only thing strong enough for mechanical stuff, everything else just breaks sooner than later. Just pointing out that there are options out there for those who do not use metal :) Me thinks metal paint on metal might be neat though, but I think plating would be a better bet. Just it is cool that people can paint metal now :)

Ah okay, because I wondered too, that your work really didn't look like it isn't made out of metal ;) Thanks for the tip!

I have no idea how it would work in combat, but it's awesome.

neither do I. I want to make a bigger, more functional one, was limited on size for this build, not for the next one though :)

oh wow, that looks fantastic and has cool moving parts too! :D how long did it take? :)

Thanks! It was about 11 hours in CAD to get everything figured out, from there, 2 hours to program the pathing, 6 hours on the CNC router, 2 hours deburring, 1.5 hours riveting, 3 hours for finishing. ~25.5 hours. Not a huge amount of work considering that it is a mechanized blade, just doing this on top of a regular job is a bit tiring :)
