Thick leather watch bands. Gps pathfinder watch.
One day, while at my last job, I was sitting around watching my line, getting bored. Line was running fine, I wasn't yet an operator for that line, so I was really just there for changeovers which happened around 5 times a day with the operator I was paired with. I was bored. SO BORED! In my bordedom, I had a lot of time to think, so I tactfully wasted that time twiddling my thumbs. Eventually this tired me too, so I went to a different line that I had run earlier that week and got a core that was destined to go in the dumpster. When I say core, think cardboard toilet paper tube on steroids. It's 1/4" thick cardboard tube with an inner diameter of about 3"...It's practically structural tubing. I took out my multi-tool and started to bore a hole in it with the leather punch. Now mind you that this core is 1/4" wood pulp held together with thick glue. It took me 30 minutes to get a hole in the core. Woo hoo. Then the idea hit me like a ton of bricks. I WOULD MAKE THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE INTO A CAMERA. I told everybody that I would do so, and nobody believed me. That night I went home and got a 3/8" wooden dowel, 4 1/4x20x1.5 NF Hex head bolts, an old film can, an old roll of fuji superia that I wasn't going to use, some super glue, my drill bits, and a good roll of TMax 100. I also printed out a sheet of reciprocity failure characteristics for the TMax. The next day, armed with my parts and ideas swirling around in my head, I went to work. It was going to be another day of the same boredom from the last, but I was prepared. When I got there, I performed my usual setup and cleaning duties, helped to start the line, and got things running smooth. Then it was waiting time. I set about building my device. I took the straight edge I kept at work and lined out 4 lines down the length of the core, 90 degrees apart, making sure to keep one line through the approximate center of my recently created hole. I took my drill bits and, by hand, drilled out 4 holes for the bolts and 4 holes for the dowels undercut by one size bit. I cut the dowels to approximate size with my multi-tool. I tapped the four bolt holes with the bolts themselves in order to ensure the most light-tight seal that I could get. I CHANGED OVER THE MACHINE. After the changeover, I had to cut some cores for the current run. I grabbed a few and my cut dowels and ran upstairs to the bandsaw. When I was done with the cores, I cut a slot down the approximate center of the dowels, about 1/3 the length of the dowel. When I got back to the line, I tried to fit the dowels into the rolls of film. They didn't fit. I took a small drill bit and carved the dowels down the sides of the band saw cut, and the knife in my multitool until the dowels fit into the film cartridge and engaged the flats (so I could advance/rewind the film without having to rely on friction fits or glue). Then...A CHANGEOVER! Once we got that all sorted out, I went back about my business. I attacked the roll of superia like a dog. I tore off the top of the can and ripped all the film out. I made sure to completely remove all the film and tape from the spindle without damaging it, because I knew I'd need it later. I took the film can from the TMax and cut out a slot so the part of the superia can where the film came out would fit through it. I superglued them together as you see in the image. Then I drilled out a hole in the lid and bottom of the can to fit the dowel to the spindle (again by hand...no power tools or even bit-holders for me). I set that aside to dry and decided to cut a groove the size of some tape around the aperture. It worked out well and it was a quick sortie of hacking and tearing. I then decorated my creation with shapies until the next CHANGEOVER! At last, I was set to assemble my camera...but wait! I had forgotten to create an aperture! There was merely a gaping hole in the camera where the controlled diameter aperture should be! CRAP! I quickly set about going to a break in order to search out a suitable (preferrably ductile) material that I could use as an aperture plate. I walked slowly toward the restroom through the warehouse looking for any garbage that may be of use...and there it was. Foil. Trash, left on a dead machine with no printing on it. Perfect. I got a good 6" square piece of my prize and went to the restroom, then to lunch. A half hour later, I returned and sought out one of my mechanic friends. I asked for something like a pin, and he said he'd look around and find me on the line. I went back to the line just in time for a CHANGEOVER! This was it, the last CHANGEOVER of the day. I had to get this thing together. About an hour before quitting time, Mr. Mechanic came by with an extremely fine-pointed pin-type thing. It was perfect. I quickly cut my foil to about the size of a dime, layed out two pieces of tape on the steel table and cut a triangular hole in the centers. I sMasked Owl - Unmasked!
This shot is a re-crop of an old photo I took at RMZ. The background was far too distracting, and took the attention away from this exquisitely beautiful owl. This photo opportunity was pure chance! I just happened to be in the right part of the RMZ grounds just as the Keeper was taking this owl on a walk around the Zoo! That is, the Keeper was walking...the owl was perched on his thick leather glove! Not sure why the walk, but the owl seemed to be enjoying itself. Perhaps it knew from before that it would be rewarded with a lovely mouse to eat.... A beautiful owl! This raptor is being taken for an afternoon walk by its keeper, Simon, around the Zoo. Just very lucky timing on my part! The Australian Masked Owl (Tyto novaehollandiae) is a type of barn owl of the non-desert areas of Australia. The facial disk is white and has short brown feathers around dark brown or black eyes forming a heart shaped outline. They are blackish brown with grey and white spots on the upper body. The underparts are white with brown spots. The female is a darker color than the male. The average weight is 660gm with females larger than the male. The length is 35-47cm. They are one of Australia's largest owls. The Tasmanian Masked Owl can reach 51 cm, and is as large as a Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua). The sexes are similar in plumage, but the females are markedly larger and generally darker than the males. The call is a deep, rasping screech. The Masked Owl inhabits forests, woodlands, timbered waterways and open country on the fringe of these areas. The main requirements are tall trees with suitable hollows for nesting and roosting and adjacent areas for foraging. The range is a broad coastal band around most of mainland Australia and throughout Tasmania, and for the most part is less than 300 km from the coast. Population numbers are low on the mainland and several states give this species special conservation status. This owl is widespread and abundant in Tasmania. They are nocturnal and their prey includes rodents, reptiles, birds, insects and bandicoots. The population of the Australian Masked Owl on the mainland is declining and several states have this owl on the Species Conservation Status list. They are territorial and remain in the same area all their lives. Royal Melbourne Zoo, Parkville, Victoria, Australia.
