Electromagnetic drill press vise


An electromagnetic vise made for our drill press is our 72nd construction. The usefulness of our vise is huge as most of the times the common vice is not able to hold the piece of material in order to drill it and its support is unstable, so the whole procedure is very time consuming. Therefore, making this vise we can hold bigger and smaller pieces of material in irregular shapes and thickness and still be able to easily drill without any special procedure to support them, in advance.

Initially, we took an old blade of 20cm x 55 x 1cm and we conglutinated two metallic angles 55cm long on it, so we set the spots where our vise would be screwed at the sockets of the table of the drill press. On the upper side of the blade, we shaped two metallic boxes, which are dragged to the whole surface of the blade and they are immobilized to the position we want.

Moreover, we put two modified transformers in each metallic box that we took from old microwaves. Then, we immobilized the transformers using a resin as well as straightening the upper side so that the surface that holds the objects, be completely flat. 

The power supply of these two electromagnets is 12vdc 20a. Also, the two coils in each electromagnet are attached the one with the other and each of them gets activated by a switch. Thus, we can use one of each separately or both of them together. 

Finally, we painted our construction in green and black colour. Also, we got impressed by its retaining strength. In addition, it is relatively a very cheap construction and it also encourages the recycling of old appliances. Moreover, it can be made in various sizes and shapes according to someone’s needs. Closing, a very useful electromagnetic vise for knife makers for instance, would be one that inclines in order to sharpen at the right degrees but it could be also used in many other cases.

Dining Table 3



This time another dining table was made by the make it extreme team using the combination of metal and wood as the previous time. 

First, we made and designed a metallic framework which was relatively simple, nice and ergonomic. Our framework shapes a frame around the wood that is 6 cm wide while the legs that support the frame are 80 x 80 mm wide and 69 cm long. Therefore, the table is 75 cm tall. The four legs of our dining table are connected with two triangles at the bottom side and these triangles are connected with a square tube. The reason making these triangles besides the fact that is aesthetically prettier is also functional as the triangles gives the potential to another two persons to sit on the table and be able to touch their feet down. 

Moreover, the wooden surface that was placed on the top part of the frame, was made by a branch of an olive tree that was cut in wood. After processing and cleaning the wood from weeds, we conglutinated each piece of wood with the other in order to make a surface with dimensions of 90cm x 190cm.

Closing, we would like to say that the wood that was used for our table is olive tree because of its unbelievable beauty. Also, the spots that were empty resulted by the frames of the tree, were filled with epoxy resin. Finally, it is a time consuming construction and we should say that some complications and difficulties might arise in every stage of making it. However, this does not mean that it was not an important, constructive experience providing us much knowledge and pleasure.

Homemade drone catcher



The last, few years, air drones have been widely known as they are remote-controlled, flying devices that are capable of filming and photographing while being on the air. Make it extreme team gives its own solution to the problem of the annoying drones that are flying in private places in this video. 

Although, we have seen various mechanisms instead of drones, our construction is unique and maybe it is the first homemade, anti-drone gun. Initially, our thought was simple, to create a gun with four barrels which would shoot a net with the help of compressed air and it would trap this flying device.  

First of all, we started making our construction taking two bottles of oxygen of one use only that are durable up to 150 bar. We chose these particular bottles as even after our processing on them, they are still safe to tolerate high pressures. Also, we used two bottles in order to have more litres of air. In one bottle, we put a car’s wheel valve where the air is entered in the bottles and in the other, we put an indicative clock of air pressure. Then, we attached these two bottles on a valve that controls the opening and the closing of the exit of compressed air from the tanks.

One of the most important factors for the right performance of the gun is how fast the valve will open and release the air. Therefore, we connected the valve with a strong spring that as soon as the trigger is pulled, the trigger also pulls  with pressure and speed the valve to open. Next, we bifurcated the air with four barrels. Also, we bifurcated the air with the same accessories in order to achieve exactly the same distribution of air in each barrel of our gun.

Regarding the barrels of the gun, we used aluminum tubes of 1 meter length. Additionally, we used a mechanism in the center of the gun that diagonally opens and closes the barrels so the gun can be regulated to shoot in a short or in a long distance. The net has four bullets on it that are inserted in the barrels and when the bullets are released with power, the net is drifted away with them. 

Closing, we would like to say that we are very proud of our construction as its performance was excellent and our successful shoots made us happy.

Chainsaw engine 3 wheel scooter



We started making our 69th video by taking a machine from an old chainsaw in order to make a simple scooter for short distances. Even though, this machine is not made to move big loads but it is made for making a lot of spins, we managed to reach a quite good outcome.

To start with, we first made a simple framework made of metallic square tubes size 60 x 30 x 2mm. At the back side of the framework, we made the basis, where the machine has been placed while exactly below it, we conglutinated the case, where the bearings are located and the axis passes through them.

The axis is 20mm and it is the part that is in control of moving the back wheels of the vehicle. Also, a gear which is big enough, was placed and it is moved by the machine through a chain connected to it. Also, at the edges of the axis, we placed two wheels taken by a go kart. In front of each wheel , we put two metallic plates layered with rubber and this is the part where the driver places his feet during driving. 

At the frontal piece of the framework, we made the prongs for the front wheel which is connected with the steering wheel. Therefore, we made a very small and convenient vehicle that is able to pass through narrow spaces and provide us an enjoyable time. 

Finally, to make our scooter stop, we placed disc brakes at the frontal wheel and this wheel was taken from an old motorcycle. Additionally, we painted our vehicle in repsol colours as we do in any vehicle made by us and now we made our collection bigger in make it extreme vehicles.

Hydraulic power pack



After making a plunger presented on one of our previous videos and as we make machines that work using plungers, we considered it necessary to add a mobile, hydraulic unit in our shop too. This construction is the unit that transfers the oil with pressure in order to move the plunger. Therefore, we made a metallic jar to pour the oil inside. Additionally, we put wheels under the jar and a metallic, steering wheel to move it around. The jar’s capacity can fit up to 60 liters liquid. To seal the top part of the jar, we placed a metallic, iron plate 6mm thick that is remained stable by 10 screws placed around the top part of the jar.

On the particular metallic plate, we applied the rest components. Firstly, we placed an electrical engine of 3hp and on this engine, we put the hydraulic pump which is located inside the jar unlike the motor which is located on the top part of the jar. 

On the one side of the pump, we placed a tube that on its edge, there is a filter. This side of the pump is the one that the pump gets the oil that is also sent to the other edge of the jar on the controller through a tube. On the controller, it is also placed the way to send the oil back to the jar after getting filtered using the filter placed on the top side of the jar.

Moreover, next to the controller, there is a clock that shows the pressure exerted when the pump shoves the oil. The motor can be turned on and off using a switch located next to the clock.

Finally, on the tank we placed a component that shows us the level and the temperature of the oil that is currently in the tank. The oil is poured in the jar by a bottle stopper that we put on the top side of the jar. Thus, we made a complete hydraulic unit that is connected with two tubes of high pressure on any plunger that we move using our remote controller. The hydraulic systems are widely known for their uses on various machines and we are very glad that now, we have our own system. Closing, we hope to make a lot of hydraulic machines in the future.
