Steampunk? Hm - you could paint the pulleys something appropriate.

Flat black would be easiest. Hammered bronze might be more interesting. Rustoleum has spray paints with the hammered metal look in various metal tones.

Pulley and belt shields are always a good idea and they could also be decorated

Ha, lawn ornament, if I lived in Florida instead of Texas it would have been a pink flamingo.

It was a test piece. I have not etched copper this way before, so I did everything with that piece before doing the hopper. Helped to get the timing right.

Good idea, I will think about that.
