This is Gearhead #1, my newest parlor kaleidoscope. It is made from highly figured western big leaf maple and claro walnut, with brass and acrylic components.
The scope itself measures 14” long and 4” in diameter. It is a narrow 3 mirror system with a 3 ½” diameter liquid silicone filled acrylic object cell containing lamp worked and dichroic glass.
The ball bearing mounted cell is rotated by wooden gears powered by turning the star shaped nob to the right of the viewing hole.
While it can be enjoyed with only ambient room lighting, there is also a supplemental rechargeable LED light for extra flash.
Overall with the base it stands 15” tall, 15” long and 8” wide.
