Screw Tutorial for Dr. Stein by N-Hyuman80 Screw Tutorial for Dr. Stein by N-Hyuman80
MWAHAHAHA!!! BOOOOW BEFORE ME AND MY AWESOME SCREW MAKING MIGHT!!! *flexes and poses*

btw, this is what my most recent journal was talking about....



So this is actually my first tutorial, because, well, this is the first thing I've had to be worthy of making a tutorial for.


So. let me know if it's good, or bad, why it's bad, what could be better...

And if you like it, or need it, or know anyone who needs to make a screw or needs to make a NEW screw, please pass it on.


btw, I found the noisemaker at Party City, but it took me, like, MONTHS to find, apparently they're a seasonal thing in some places, so if you think ur gunna need'm, and see'm, get'm!


Criticism please!


NOTE: I found out that spackling and sanding the styrofoam is almost a better alternative to tape, since there would be no "seams" or anything like that. (although to be honest, I didn't do the spackling, so it didn't turn out all that well, but I have a bit of confidence that it'll turn out much better, as I'm intent on remaking the screw YET AGAIN)

Or using Insulation foam is good too. Much more sturdy. Still involves cutting, spackling and painting, but it's up to you XD

It depends? Do you mean for the screw itself? Or for something else?

The screw itself, like if you made one and shipped it to me and I paid for it.

Uh... I've never done it before, but there's a first time for everything, I guess? 

I'd need to know where your from, then I'll have to find out the price of materials and shipping and stuff before I can give you an estimate. I'd probably also need some money in advance, since I have like, no money.

This is awesome I had some idea of how to make it- but this was great to follow--- My screw head is already almost finished- but rather than tape- I layered craft foam- now to get some pvc piping >:3

Awesome.  But do you know a way to make it crank without a noisemaker?

N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013
I haven't really thought of one since I already have one... maybe if you found something like a gas cap, you know how when it's tightened enough it clicks when you turn it? Something like that maybe (just the first thing off the top of my head)

Oh, Oh! Or maybe a medicine bottle, one with a childproof cap? Just cut the bottle so it's flush with the cap, then attatch either the cap to the screw or screwhead, and then vice-verse?

so wait... where else is it possible to get the noise maker? what exactly is this type of noise maker called?

N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
First off, sorry for the late reply, haven't been on in a loong while

Second, I'm not really sure where to get them(unless your on O'ahu -_-). Basically I just went to Party City, but I'm sure similar stores have them.

I've seen them just called noise makers, and football clackers, but usually I have to describe what I'm talking about to one of the salespeople, so maybe bring a pic with you?

Sorry I'm not very helpful, I live in a very small world xD

how did you connect the screw to head band? i used two pieces of insulfoam and taped them together with the noise maker inside. i have an head band but its skinny. my first time making this.

N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
First off, sorry for the very late reply, I haven't been on in a very long time -_-

Second, I used hot glue, but my headbad was rather thick. If you can, I might suggest either looking for a thicker headband, getting more skinny ones and binding them together(somehow?) or maybe, if you used the pvc pipe part, drill a small hole through it and hot glue the headband through it, padding the side that goes against your head.

I hope this hasn't come too late for you to be able to use your screw D:

I'm trying to make this for a Stein cosplay for Katsucon, so I have a few questions:

1) none of the craft stores I went to had styrofoam circles in 1 1/4 in thickness, just one inch. would I still be able to make this as normal, or would I have to but an additional styrofoam circle to augment the original?

2) Around how much spackle(or drywall compound)would I need to, I would presume, coat the screw head?

3) What kind of clay did you use to attach the handle of the noisemaker to the short section of PVC pipe?

BTW, the noisemakers aren't really seasonal, in my experience -- I just asked someone who worked there, and he led me to them.

:iconn-hyuman80:
N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
Awesome!

1- You could buy another if you wanted to, but I don't think it's really necessary, as long as the noisemaker fits inside, you know?

2- Not very much, actually. You want a nice, generous coat, so you can sand it smooth when it dries. If I recall, I bought a pretty big tub for like, $5, and didn't use very much of it at all.

3- I don't think the type of clay really matters. I just used what I have, I think it's just modeling clay. But you could actually use hot glue instead.

I think it is some places. The store I went to had them, then didn't have them for a while, then had them again, so, I dunno.

Anyway, I hope it turns out great ^^

Actually, it came out great, with some tweaks; neither my brother nor I could figure out how to bend the PVC pipe, so he ended up wrapping the handle of the noisemaker in enough electrical tape to where it would fit comfortable in the PVC pipe and not come loose or anything(hot glue also helped, lol). But I managed to get it finished in time for Katsucon...

...and it slipped off my head that Friday, and the headband broke. ^_^; (luckily, it was salvageable with enough duct tape which someone provided.)

I'm in the process of repairing it/getting it repaired, so it should be ready in time for Otakon in 3 weeks.

how long /how wide should the pvc pipe be?
Reply
:iconn-hyuman80:
N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012
The initial pipe itself, or how long should the cut piece be that you use for the screw?
and do you mean for the screw-head side, or for the opposite side?

The initial pipe length doesn't matter, I think, and the other measurements should be on the tutorial, are they not?

:iconzenephielea97:
Zenephielea97 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
opposite side
and about how wide should it be
Reply
:iconn-hyuman80:
N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012
The lengths are on the tutorial- the side with the screw is 1 1/2 in, the opposite side is 2 1/2 inches.

The width... the one I used is about 3/4 inch.

Well, if I'm getting your inquiry accurately, you put the clay in to hold the handle to the clacker thingy in place, it also gives you a good flat surface to glue to the headband.

About how much would it cost for all of the items needed to make the screw? :invisible:
Reply
:iconn-hyuman80:
N-Hyuman80 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
It really depends. It shouldn't be as much for you, cuz I live in Hawaii, and all the stuff it pretty expensive here. (by comparison anyway)

Uh... the clicky thing was like, $1
the foam circle... maybe $7 (I think?)
I found the headband thingy, so, Free
the PVC came in a little pack of 4 for like, $5 (again, I think)
The paint was maybe $2-3
Hot glue gun/glue... $5-10ish?
Tape or Spackle $5-10


As you can see, this isn't actually very helpful. Really, the best way to figure the price out is go around, and find the prices and stuff yourself, cuz I haven't the slightest idea anymore. Granted, it has been like, 6 months, not to mention we live in different areas with probably different stores at which prices vary.

Basically, find what you need at the cheapest prices you can, and if you come up with a price range let me know, cuz I don't even know XP
