Need to make a particular mold? Use this Polystyrene cutter!

A polystyrene cutting machine!! That’s a must for the creative ones!! 

Can be used to make molds, models, candles, and much more inspired ideas!!  
The main advantage of this machine is that it cuts polystyrene without leaving any rags, as a result, prevents “messy” working space. 

It can easily cut large surfaces, with no effort. It cuts angles of any degrees once the cutting surface can be adjusted and set to any degrees according to the requirements. 
It could cut many pieces of polystyrene at the same time according to the elements used. 
The cutting height is adjustable and you can set the required height using the accessories which come with the machine. 
Another advantage of this machine is that the cutting wire can be replaced with a thinner or a thicker once and this gives the flexibility to cut different widths with high accuracy! 
When used in combination with a lot of imagination, it can produce unbelievable stuff!!  It has infinite uses and can create many different products and a huge number of complementary tools.

The total cost for the construction is very low (about 80 Euros). It weighs about 25 kg and its dimensions are W75cm x D75cm (the height is adjustable according to the requirement).  
The total height when not in use and when all the accessories are placed on their position is 20cm.
It can be either fitted on a work bench of stand on the floor...
Either on the work bench or on the floor, the user must be very careful when using this machine once the cutting wire reaches very high temperatures when in use.

The materials used for this machine were: metal pieces, timber, wires, a transformer, elements, screws, paint. It is an easy to make machine but a very useful one!!

Year of construction: 2015

Retractable wall TV stand!!

That’s a wall base for a 65’’ tv. It is a retractable tv mount with full Motion swing out tilt and swivel articulating arm. It can reach a max. 
Of 2 meters distance from wall and gives the opportunity to watch tv everywhere in the house, in the living room, the kitchen or even on balcony. 
And can carry a max of 100 kg!! What makes it extreme? The fact that even if its fully loaded, it is still completely straightened. It was made of 40x20x3mm hollow sections and 20mm hinges. 
Furthermore, a bearing was used for its construction and this makes it easier to move and requires no effort to use.
It was made very quickly for a fun of “make it extreme”.

Do you like making stuff out of glass?? Glad to hear it!!

Do you like making stuff out of glass?? Glad to hear it!! 

It might be easier to buy it from a shop. I know!! But for those, like me, who have “passion for creation”, buying it ready would be everything but satisfactory! 
Well, I really enjoy making stuff using glass! I just love them all!! The problem was that I could not easily alter the shape of glass pieces and cut them to be used in different new structures. 

The solution to that was this extreme multifunctional machine!!
The biggest challenge was the lack of space in my workshop!!  The space for glass processing stuff was very limited and thus, i had to make a multifunctional machine for glass alteration. 
It was difficult and time consuming, but the result definitely worth it! Don’t you thing??
I’ve just made it!! My little miraculous one!!!  it’s dimensions are 60cm(L) x 60cm(W) x 45cm(H)
A real space saving one, however it can do (almost) everything!! It can cut pieces of glass, smooth glass pieces and also smooth the cut edges of the glass. 

The results are just amazing! 
It can give any shape to glass pieces, giving me the opportunity to use glass in combination with other materials (like pieces of tree trunk) and create fabulous imaginative objects!
You may think “so what?  Just another glass grinder”!!  What does make it extreme???
Hold on a second!! Good news is that grinder heads can easily be changed!! Using a smaller or a larger head gives the freedom of smoothing, and thin the glass as much as you like!! 
Also gives the opportunity to work faster or slower according to the user’s needs at anytime. 

What is more, glass of any kind and any size, (even the broken ones that you would throw away), could be used to make amazing items!!! 
You are not throwing glass anymore!! 

It is the one helps me recycle any piece of glass and reduce the pollution!! I just love the planet i live in!! That’s a new way to save it!! 

What about the construction of the machine? 
Are you interested to know that?? Well, i have to admit that it was one of the most complicated ones, really time consuming and many different materials were used for it’s constructions. 
It operates using a motor from an old concrete mixer. Electric switches and wires, timber, rubber mats, screws, paints and of course metal pieces are some of the materials used to create the incredible look and reach the highest efficiency of this glass grinder / cutter!!

Extreme bottle cutting machine! Reuse and recycle old glass bottles!

Inspired from green way of living!!  

When you care about the environment, then you are trying to save the environment in any possible way!!
The need of  adopting  ”go green” way of life, in this day and age where scientists “sounds the alarm” over the planet’s pollution and natural life’s disaster combined with the impressive look and the low cost glass made structures have, gave me the idea!! 

The inspiring idea of constructing a machine which would give me the opportunity to accurately cut glass bottles in order to reuse and recycle them, reducing the waste, and, as a result reducing the pollution on earth. 

Processed glass bottles cut in different pieces could be used to make great glass creations like glass ashtrays, impressive jewellery, unique pieces for home decoration, glass lighting covers and many more imaginative ideas!!
That’s a great way of processing unused glass bottles!

Ready for more great news??
Well!! The machine can cut bottles in any width any size and any shape!!! That’s right!! Not enough?? 
Well we have some more!!  
This extreme machine can cut in really high speed, without the need of using cold or hot water during the cutting process!! 
Last but not least,  the construction of the machine  was incredibly efficient once almost the whole machine was made of old materials we did not need any more (two old motors - one for rotating the bottle and one for cutting the bottle, and many old pieces of steel)

The only part of the machine which has been bought was the diamond disk to cut glass which was the only part that increased (a little bit) the construction’s total cost.  
Oh!!! There is something I totally forgot to mention but i know you really wonder about!! Are you interested in the performance level?? I can confirm it would satisfy the needs of the most demanding ones!!
