Hi all who are enthousiast about my kyratisation :-)
Do you remember the bug I posted before which was lacking it's brooch system ?
I said I'll have a restore try...
This was a long project!
I had an old C clasp, tube hinge brooch of little interest, wanting to saw the findings to keep them intact, I waited for the saw ordered for one month...
Sawing was quickly done, I settled for soldering, guess what... the torch didn't work anymore!
Had to wait another week to get one :-(
On pic #3 ou can see all my settlement : a half potato to hold the bug and protect glass from heat, a pinch held closed by a rubber band, then held with a strong pinch.
Book, boxes under, to adapt position...
"Solder-it" paste put on with a thin pin, beeing careful it won't block hinge...
Et voilà !
It took near an hour, lol! Installation was rather Mc Giver-ish, but I'm very pleased with my project beeing achieved !
