This one has been in the works longer than intended, thanks to some health issues and a few other "life things" that slowed its progress. However, I'm happy to say that it's now complete and working quite well! It has two large spirals, dual tracks, a track splitter switch, a whole bunch of loops(yay for loops!), a tipping arm and plenty of curvy, wavy track. As this was commissioned by a dentist's office, I asked if they had any instruments they did not need. Of course, medical instruments are often made of high quality stainless, and I was able to weld several of them right to the sculpture itself. Check it out!

My welding skills continue to improve. Each time I complete one of these I find myself able to achieve more complex jobs with improving results.

If you know of anyone who would enjoy this video or my others, please pass them along, thanks!
