Making a Fast Coupling Engine


This structure is very special as it comes to give a solution to many people who are occupied doing a similar job to us. This time we chose a motorcycle engine and we placed it on a frame in order to be able to remove it and place it on many other vehicles that we are planning to make in the future without applying any transformations then. The reason which led us making this kind of structure is that every time we made a motor vehicle project we had to buy the motor. Due to this constant purchase, we had to spend a lot of money either buying it or repairing a cheaper one as well as spending time not finding the proper motor regarding its power in order to make it the right one for each past project and future ones.

First of all, we have chosen a motor of the KTM-640-LC4 which has a lot of durability, enough propensity and enough horsepower in order to meet our needs and cover the most of our structures. Also, we made a frame taken by class b 22mm tubes. Additionally, on the frame we put the motor and we adopted every element that is needed to be able to function properly. Next, we put radiator, catch tank, radiator tank, oil cooler, battery and many other elements. Most of these are made by our team. Therefore, when the engine is connected to any motor vehicle, only the connection with the clutch as well as the connection of the wire for the throttle, the connection of the fuel and the gears will be required. All these connections will not take more than five minutes as the gears are connected just with a plug of three cables and are chosen with the use of two buttons.

In conclusion, that was the structure with the number 00115 by the make it extreme team and it is a gear selector. This engine aims to be connected on any vehicle with special safety pins. We called our structure ‘the youtubers engine’ as it is very essential and suitable for people who also do what we do. Only in specific purposes, when a structure requires a particular type of engine we will have to use another motor. All in all, we are glad that we managed to implement another idea that we have had in mind for so many years. We, also, hope in the future to have the opportunity to use it many times as well as be able to improve it and take our idea a step further.

Making a scrap wire stripping machine



The structure numbered 0131 is a wire stripping machine using old cables for recycling purposes. It is well-known that pure copper that is included in the cables can be sold and having this in mind, we considered it wise to make a cable stripping machine.

The theoretical part of the structure is simple as the cable is placed on a power wheel which enables the cable to move forcing it to pass under a cylindrical blade which cuts the plastic cover of the cable. Also, the power wheel moves through an electrical motor and a speed reducer. The speed reducer increases the power of the power wheel of the cable and reduces its speed providing quality and controlled function.

Regarding the cylindrical blade, it has the ability to increase and reduce the height in order to be able to process cables in various diameters. Additionally, on the machine, we added two cylinders, which enable the separation of the plastic cover from the copper after cutting.

This is a very useful structure and we are pleased that we made our own version of a cable peeling machine.

Making a wire measurement tool



On this video we present the making of a tool which is used to measure the length of a rope or a cable. This tool is very useful in stores that sell things like these as it helps the user to cut precisely and quickly a piece of it. Also, it is very useful in cases where we need to cut cables, which have been measured in order to pass it through the tubes easily and avoid any waste.

First of all, we started our tool by taking a mechanical, 5-digit counter. Then, we placed a wheel on it with diameter 31,83 which means in each rotation moves 9,94 cm. Therefore, we know that at 10 rotations, we have covered 1 metre distance.
Above the wheel that makes the measurements we put a roller that was connected on a lever which has a spring to constantly push the material that is being measured.

The reason why we made this mechanism is to avoid losing in measurement and to be able to measure materials that vary in diameter. Eventually, all the mobile parts of our tool have been stabilized on a basis so the project 0129 came to the end having a great success.

Make it Extreme's Almond Crusher



In this video, we present to all of you a structure of a pioneer machine, useful for cracking the almond’s shells. Without spending a lot of money making it, this machine can crack easily many almonds making our life much easier.

Firstly, we picked a 12v motor, taken by the mechanism used in windshield wipers of an old car. Then, we put a cam on the motor. Afterwards, we made two metallic structures, which were connected with two bearings on each one’s side.

Therefore, these two metallic structures are able to open and close on the one side. Thus, as the cam moves the one part opens and closes on the other. On the upper side of the piece we placed a piece of a gear rack, where is the point that crashes the almonds’ shell.

Furthermore, the almonds pass between these two metallic points and while the upper part is opening and closing, it is crashing the almonds and the crashing almonds are coming out of the exit of the machine. Thus, with the help of the air produced by the movement, the flow of the almonds towards the jaw for their crashing as well as their flow towards the exit is processed smoothly and constantly.

Also, we created a metallic jar to put the almonds inside from which an automatic door opens and closes by the movement of the cam in order to move each almond separately for crashing and not all together at the same time.

Another innovative point on our machine which is placed where the cam causes motion is a metallic chock, which its role is to start the motion in various heights so that the machine to be able to crack almonds in different sizes as a result the inner nut to remain unaffected.

To sum up, we hope that we have helped and inspired other people to make the same machine in order to make their life easier and feel pleased like us with the use of such a useful tool.
