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.

Make it Extreme's jumping bike-scooter



The team of make it extreme has created an unusual vehicle as this week’s construction. Because of its uniqueness as we have not seen something similar to this yet, we called it ‘jumping bike’ as to move it we need to do some jumps on it. Our vehicle with the number 0067 looks like something between a scooter and a bike. At its front part, there is a wheel while at the back side there are two wheels. It is quite tall so it can be used on the streets and on the sand. However, the main reason of making it was its interesting mechanism that we needed to create it and it can inspire many other manufacturers to make various other projects. Without being certain, we think that this bike is the first in the world that works in this way.

First of all, we started making the particular construction using an old fitness machine that was modified taking the jumping bike’s body. The body of this bike is consisted of two parts that are connected with a common central axis. Also, a spring holds both of these bodies steadily and they are only moved when they feel the human’s weight on them. While they are bended, they shape an angle of 60 degrees unlike when they accept the load on them the angle becomes 180 degrees.

Furthermore, the front movable part is connected with chains using a mechanism located at the other movable part, which is on two gears. Therefore, when somebody jumps on it and the body stretches, the chains are stretched too. Thus the gears are coming back to move the pulley. Additionally, when the human’s weight is removed from the bike the gears are taking their initial position and to make it move again, another leap should be made. 

Generally, the particular mechanism turns the horizontal move into a spinning one. The final move of the wheels is caused by a pulley through a belt placed on the axis and reaches the wheels. Even if the particular bike is not so ergonomic as a common bike, it is still enjoyable and interesting to ride it as it is something out of the common. Closing, we are very happy adding another vehicle in our collection and we are already prepared to make the next vehicle!

Making hydraulic cylinder


Our previous project gave us the chance to hold and modify longer pieces on the lathe. Using the particular construction, we decided to make a hydraulic plunger, which will be placed on a future construction that we are planning to make. The plungers and generally, the hydraulic systems are very useful tools as it is required great power and loads. These plungers have multiple uses in various machines and tools. The procedure of making a plunger is relatively simple.

First of all, to create our own plunger, we took a tube of 80mm x 60cm length, the suitable dimensions for the particular purpose. On the one edge, we made a thread while at the other end of the cylinder, we conglutinated a metallic cap. Also, from the one to the other end of the cylinder, we conglutinated two inputs, from which the oil passes through with pressure moving the axis of the hydraulic plunger forward and backward.

Regarding the axis of the plunger that we used for our construction, it has 45mm diameter and 65cm length. We placed thread in both its edges. On the one edge, the component that is moved forward and backward in the cylinder is connected to it while at the front, we made a thread to be able to connect it to the machine that we are planning to make in the future.

To sum up, even if our plunger gets damaged because of its use, it will be easily repaired and the damaged components can be replaced too. Although, it is a very simple construction, the hydraulic systems will give us the potential to make plenty extreme constructions in the future.
