Designer and maker of parts for your perfect project.
70's "Goon" Eyeball Kit which has been designed, developed and 3D printed by Tom's Refurbishments, with thanks to Chesterfield Model Making and Miniature Electronics (CMMME) Ltd. for supplying the laser cut components.
Included in each kit are the parts as follows:
1 X 3D printed "Goon" eyeball
1 X 3D printed iris ring with 36mm opening
1 X laser cut plain lens
1 X laser cut lens with centre hole
1 X 3D printed 14mm "pupil"
1 X 3D printed 18mm "pupil"
6 X neodymium magnets
The eyeball features an 8mm centre hole in the back for either attaching to the eyestalk assembly with a bolt or for wires to be fed through, should you require it to be lit up. The back also features a 1mm deep recess in the centre to suit a 1" (25.4mm) diameter tube.
The front opening of the eyeball is designed to sit 3 of the supplied neodymium magnets in place in small recesses. The iris ring also has 3 identical locations for the remaining neodymium magnets to be fitted. Great care should be taken when gluing the magnets into place (either with epoxy resin or super glue depending on your preference) so as to make sure the polarities match between the eyeball and iris ring magnets, otherwise the iris will not remain in place. By having the iris ring held on with magnets, this allows access to the insides should you need to alter bolt fittings or electronics once the piece is finished and assembled to your complete build.
The supplied lenses and pupils give the builder the options to make one of several designs used in the 70's. The plain lens is to be fitted to the iris if the builder wishes to paint the pupil on, as per the original props, or the lens with hole and either pupil piece can be fitted instead to give a bolder look.
This is a kit and will need finishing and assembling before painting. These parts will require filling and/or sanding before painting to achieve a smooth finish. What you will receive in this kit is pictured and also itemised above.
Toms refurbishment is one if not the best business that can provide you with recreated "prop" parts to a outstanding degree and would definitely recommend him as his speed in posting and the finish quality of the product is handled with such care. Tom himself is also very kind and encouraging and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks to Tom I have been able to start my dream of having my own personal "army" which would not be possible without parts provided by Tom.

I contacted Tom back in 2019 about making some improvements to my project so that I could take him to events and Comic Cons. Tom saw this as a challenge and found solutions which created a beautiful, reliable machine that works wonderfully and allowed me to attend the Queen's Jubilee Parade without any technical issues. I fully recommend Tom's Refurbishments and I intend to commission my other project with Tom in the near future.
