Paperclip Squirrel mail

Recommended Posts

Since I don't want Dice Bag Maker's head to go 'splodey, here are some pictures from my experiment with paperclip rings. And a brave stuffed animal.

I used a vise grip to hold a screwdriver and the end of a large paperclip. I then used pliers to straighten the rest of the paperclip. Then I used the slip-joint pliers to hold the paperclip near the screwdriver shaft, and spun the vise grip around. Sometimes had to use the pliers to push the paperclip together, to get a better coil. Cutting the rings off took forever, at first. Mostly, I realized, because the cutters I was using were old, and dull. Once I broke them, I got a new set of cutters, and things went much more quickly after that.

Very fun, and very done. Can't really do any more, since he's starting to collapse under his own weight. I'm happy with how it turned out, though. :)

Now I can move onto the TRL shipment I got on Thursday!
