    Made this for my better half’s brother. I’d have liked the weld on the elbow to have been better but did my best with it.

    Piston is around 100mm in diameter. Tube is 25mm.

    It does have a use, 10 points if you can guess what it’s for.

    No electrics involved.

    That's nice; love the contrast between wood and metal and (I think) you've got the balance and proportion spot on!

    Looks very cool. Hmmmmm, I have a piston and con rod out of a top fuel drag car, bought on eBay for £20 a decade ago. I have an idea.......

    Trouble is I’ll never see it, as my helmet will be on it whenever I am in the house. :doh:

    Maybe I could actually make a wall light, as someone mentioned. :D
