The Archbishop PC Suite

| 6 months ago

This is a PC/LCD/Keyboard/"Mouse" combo built using some of the more attractive design elements of the Gothic school of architecture. The LCD lives inside a scratch-built Gothic arch with quatrefoil designs and stained-glass doors. The PC case features the same Morisco-patterned glass, brass embellishments, a hinged lid for access to the drives and hardware, and […]

Datamancer’s at it again!

| 14th February 2012

Our friend Datamancer is at it again!  This new endeavour looks fantastic.  I for one can’t wait until it’s complete!   For those of you in need of a new keyboard, he’s also currently offering 20% off his Aviator keyboard, a particular favourite of mine!  

Datamancer keyboard at DragonCon

| 3rd September 2011

If you happen to be at DragonCon this weekend in Atlanta, be sure to stop by Brute Force Studio’s booths, 309-311 and see one of my “Sojourner” model keyboards on display. This is the same model keyboard as the one that appears in SyFy Channel’s Warehouse13 show. -~Doc~-

10-round Mosin mag at the range

| 22nd May 2011

I took the Mosin Scout and the 10-round Mosin mag out to the range today and beat on them a little bit. Aside from the inevitable “sticky bolt syndrome” after about 75 rounds, the rifle and mag performed very well. Here’s a short video of me firing 10 rounds through the mag (maybe the first […]

Mosin Scout Mod – Part 7 of 7 – Stealth Bipod

| 28th April 2011

Well, I couldn’t leave well enough alone so I started building a bipod for my mosin scout. This one is a little different because it folds completely away into the stock when not in use. It is also completely integrated into the stock and doesn’t touch the barrel at all, so everything is still free-floated. […]

Datamancer’s “Mosunov” Project Rifle – Part 2 of ?

| 15th March 2011

I finally got around to taking some pics of the Mosunov with the 8x POSP scope on it. I bought a POSP SVD-style side mount that was made for the Mosin, drilled and tapped the receiver and mounted it to the M39 action (I had to fight a little twinge of guilt while making that […]

Datamancer’s “Mosunov” Project Rifle – Part 1 of ?

| 17th November 2010

I’ve always loved the styling of the Dragunov and PSL-54C rifles, So I thought it would be a fun project to integrate some of those styling details into a custom rifle stock for the Mosin-Nagant. I’ll be calling this rifle my “Mosunov”. I had the M44 stock left over from my previous Scout Mod, so […]

Reliquary Keyboard Lid- Desk Toy

| 1st October 2010

For the removable lid on this Reliquary keyboard, the client wanted something interesting to put on his desk, rather than just setting the lid aside on a shelf somewhere. We kicked around a few ideas and eventually decided on building an array of gears that could spin with the use of an antique clock-winding key. […]
