What materials did you use? Cotton thread, 18ga copper, 18ga brass, 20ga colored copper wire, dead electronics.

What are you most proud of? Not breaking the section of electronics with riveting it. the tatting was mostly on the fly so that came out rather well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have a good grasp on riveting, and be sure you know what parts you are using on the electronics components as some of them can have hazardous materials if you cut them wrong. Lots of water to keep the silica dust contained while cutting and drilling as well, and definitely a NIOSH 90 mask. If you can, cut and drill in water, if not just keep a rag under it as much as possible that is wet, and keep a eye dropper or syringe of water to keep the whole thing as wet as you can. Silica dust does really bad things to lungs. Eye protection is always a must when cutting and riveting as well.The tatting is the safe bit; just don't poke yourself if you have a point on your shuttle or are using a needle.
