The Doctor has his Screwdriver, Sarah Jane had her lipstick, Missy had an umbrella, Iris has a corkscrew, Vastra had a hatpin...

Cardinal Hordriss has a Sonic Spyglass!

No light or sound yet but that's the plan.

I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see...

Interesting! I thought at first this was about the device Strax used to scan Clara. http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=5655.0
Reminds me of the spinning mirror that the third Doctor put on top of his sonic on Peladon. Certainly looks like it would fit in with the classic-era props!
A mixed-up non-conformist, trying to fit in.

I realized as I was putting it together that it was going to come out like a truncated version of the Peladon prop but it wasn't the intent from the outset.  

The inspiration was Iris Wildthyme's sonic corkscrew... it got me thinking about how different Time Lords/Ladies may have sonic probes in different forms to suit their look and personality plus all the other sonic things that we've seen since 2005. I did want a more classic look and was limited to found bits and bobs but I am pleased with the result and especially how sturdy it is.

I really love this! In a vast universe of time travelers, more customs are needed :)

Cardinal Hordriss

Thank you very much.

That's really fun with the green LED :) Does the lens rotate in the frame as well?

Cardinal Hordriss

Glad you like it. The lens is fixed inside the frame and the frame rotates.

Imagine the freaky light show that would result from both the lens spinning AND the frame!  Motorized, of course!

It would be enough to give a Dalek reason to pause!

Sincerely,

Very similar to the Doctor's hypnosis device from Curse of Peladon that he uses on Aggedor.

I want notes, lists and answers by the time I finish this here Juicy-a-Box! WARNING: I am Thirst-ay! And it is Fruit Punch! And it is Delicious!"

Cardinal Hordriss

You're not alone in that but as I said to Angelus Lupus it wasn't the initial intent. I often make things not knowing where I'm going until I'm done and sometimes I'm never done, I'm always doing updates and making changes.

Decided leatherette was needed.

It looks like you're all set to tame Aggedor if you ever wind up on Peladon. 
"My dear Litefoot, I've got a lantern and a pair of waders, and possibly the most fearsome piece of hand artillery in all England. What could possibly go wrong?"
-The Doctor.

Cardinal Hordriss

Tame him? He's one of my closest drinking buddies.
