Foster was finished machining the steel pivot bushings on the lathe, he had some time to build his quick sculpture 'Ricochet' from some leftover elements in the studio. His bullet shaped step series, was done on the metal lathe, which he has been learning about for the past few months. The inspiration of the 'Machinist' stemmed from teaching him to use the micrometer, and about processes and mindset of machining.
Foster found a piece of spring steel from a windshield wiper mechanism, he formed the coiling shape on the anvil and hammer. Base plate is remaining backing plate for the cub scout forming session we did with the entire troop when he was in second grade.
