Machining a stainless steel Venturi forge Burner



The Venturi Gas burners are constructions that mix the gas with the air before their burning. These burners are used in many metallurgy's tools like the ovens for melting metals or blacksmithing ovens as well as are used for many other functions. 

They are generally cheap and easy to be made and we have already made and placed in many of our creations. The only difference this time is that our creation is completely constituted from stainless steel and it was made by using lathe and milling machine. Compared to other cheaper and simpler constructions this particular burner has better performance as it is more precise in regulating the mixing of the gas with the air. The regulating is performed by opening and closing the entrance of the air by using a petard with a small fold step. In this way, rotating the petard the entrance opens or closes very slowly therefore the accurate regulation of the air and the gas is controlled easily and quickly. 

Finally, even though our creation with the number 0123 is simple, it is also useful and necessary.

Extending a Hydraulic Jack



The hydraulic jack is a widely known tool that has various applications. Besides lifting cars; it can be also used for lifting heavy objects. This plays an important role in how the machine will work. Having this in our mind, this video presents the expansion of a normal jack which makes it more useful for making various machines or lifting particular objects.

Initially, we took a common 6 tonnes jack reaching a route of 50cm. The jack from the factory was originally 20cm long and it has maximum opening at 38cm. After our intervention, its initial size is 53cm while its maximum opening is 103cm.
Using the lathe, we made a longer hydraulic cylinder and a corresponding piston rod. Therefore, it was unavoidable not to also extent the external tube of the jack which is also the oil tank. In this way, these three pieces were connected the one with the other like they were connected at the first place.

Following this simple procedure we have finished our creation with the number 0122. Even if it is simple, it has many applications but it is an affordable solution to make many other creations in the future.

Make it Extreme's motorbike trolley



In this video we present the construction of a trolley to transfer the motorbike. It is an essential construction for the ones who have a motorbike and they need to transfer it on their car to rally tracks or to travel long distances by using the car. Our construction is very functional and innovative as it is very different from all the other common trolleys regarding the appearance and its functional use. Our construction depends on only one wheel to move and this makes it impressive and structurally uncommon. 

First of all, we used a wheel taken from a car, which was adjusted on a frame made by a metallic tube. While this frame is being connected to the car, it is being lowered at its back side to enable the motorbike to climb on it. The mechanism that is used to lower down and lift up the trolley works with hydraulics. We used a hydraulic cylinder taken from an old hydraulic hand lift.

Furthermore, regarding the function of the piston, we used a hydraulic hand pump. Also, on our construction we specified spaces, on which the motorbike can be tied to increase the level of stability and safety. Finally, the function of our construction is amazing as well as its road behaviour is better than we expected. It is undoubtedly, one of our favourite projects.

Making a Drift Trike


One of the most attractive creations of our collection is the one with the number 0119 and it is called make it extreme drift trike. Drift trike is a vehicle especially made for drifting and providing to the driver an unbelievable experience as well as lots of fun. 

Initially, we cut two PVC tubes which are placed at the external perimeter of the two wheels at the back of our trike and their role is to slide on the road so that the vehicle will be able to drift easily without needing to exert great power from the engine. However, we put a machine of 200cc which is very strong for such a vehicle. Our vehicle has 5 gears, from which the one is the reverse. 

Using the tubes and our imagination, we managed to make our creation’s framework. The frontal wheel that we placed is quite big compared to the ones at the back and we took it from a motorbike. 

Finally, we painted our vehicle in orange colour as all the other vehicles by the make it extreme team. The experience you get driving it is amazing as it gives you a rush of adrenaline and the sense of happiness driving it is unforgettable. Undoubtedly, this is one of our favourite creations and each part of it has been made with a great detail.

Making a Spot welding machine


The Make it Extreme creation with the number 0118 is a very powerful Spot Welding machine. It is a very useful tool for welding iron plates and various other structures. This welding is achieved by the heat caused at particular spots due to the resistance of the electricity. It is relatively an expensive machine, so we decided to make it by ourselves according to our needs.

After taking two transformers from old microwave ovens, we removed the secondary coils and we replaced them with ones that we made to manage to exit with 1,5volt and 500A. Therefore, we created two coils in a row to achieve this outcome of approximately 1,5 1000A. Thus, we made a machine which is able to weld 4mm metals thick with great ease.

Afterwards, we connected the two exits from the transformers on two copper calipers. These calipers exert pressure on the pieces of metal by using our hands and pushing at the point where the metals are going to be weld and simultaneously they are transfering the electrical load. To set the time, when the coils transfer the electrical load, we placed a timer delay switch from 0-10s. In this way, we have the opportunity to choose the thickness that we prefer to weld.

To conclude, we managed to create a very functional machine with amazing capabilities as it can weld both thick and thin pieces, easily. We are very pleased and  satisfied with our creation.
