That's Bronze Aluminum 954

well I only work on this a few hours a day and sometimes weeks go by that I cant get to it. Actually started it end of Aug 2012 I guess looking at the date on the first picture I took of the first part I made. Have not worked on it in a month because of a paying job I have which are rare   :)

 

That's what I thought it was(couldn't recall the precise nominclature).How's it work out,I mean....using in ball/socket  and hinge joints?I seem to recall it having pretty good resiliance/wear characteristics.I imagine it machines nicely,it looks great.

have not made a hinge joint yet but plan to see how it will work.

I like the movement in the ball joints. This is a material that Pat Zung talked about so I am giving it a try.

I think we need to coin a new term: maybe something like "nano-stopmotion animation"!

Here are some shots of the head I posted awhile ago
More of this and other armature stuff can be seen on my Facebook

Damn... that armature is epic
