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.

Making a steady rest for metal lathe


The particular video was not only interesting but also it was necessary to be made as the tool that we created, this time, will provide us further help in the following structures. The tool that we created is a steady rest tool for our lathe. When we bought the lathe, we felt insufficient without having this tool so we decided to make one. It is very useful as it supports long pieces that we want to work on and it reduces the declination of being precise. Also, it prevents the thin pieces to be bend during the work on them and it provides many other benefits too.

We started making it by taking the measures of the lathe so that our component would be placed precisely and be able to be locked at the point we want. Therefore, we made its base, in which we placed two rings having 4cm distance between them. Separating these rings in 120 degrees in other words dividing them in three parts, we spotted the points to put the rails between the rings. These rails, on which the guided parts were placed, are moved forward and backward when we want to in order to be able to support pieces in various diameters. 

At the internal side of the movable parts, we placed a bearing so that the parts that we support to be able to spin smoothly. The only disadvantage that we have noticed on our structure is that we didn’t make it to open and close so that it can be only removed by removing the piece of the lathe. Closing, it is quite sufficient and a perfect tool for the purposes we need it, after all.
