Slotting Machine on a Lathe


In many of our creations, we use pieces on which we need to create keyways, slits, multi-wedges and normally for their creation there are a lot of ways and machines.
Also, normally special tools are used on a hydraulic press, slotting head on a milling machine but commonly the metal shaper machine is used.
On this video, we decided to show the making of a slotting machine which is placed on a lathe.

Starting with its making, we got a motor and a gear box 100:1. Then, we applied a metallic, circular flange on the gear box. On the flange, we placed a cam shaft, on which an adjustable arm is placed that transfers the move on the slotting head.

In this way, we transformed the spinning move into a reciprocating one. Next, we made a slotting head, on which the cutting tool is placed that removes the material from the piece by its reciprocating move in order to make the cut that we need.
We made this machine to place it on lathes in various sizes.

Generally, it is a simple device but it is very useful and we are very glad that we have it in our store.

Naked motorcycle with fast coupling engine



After the previous structure of the make it extreme ‘The fast coupling engine’, it would not be a surprise that our next structure would be a vehicle. This vehicle is a motorcycle that was made using our previous structure with the number 0132. Therefore, our motorcycle owns the number of 0133 in our collection and it is considered as one of the most exciting of our creations. This project is a quite hard structure to make as it requires to make every piece accurately and it has to have the right analogies to be functional and an attractive design. The motor with all its functional parts can be removed incredibly fast by removing four release pins to be placed in other vehicles, too. In this way, we might have created the first motorcycle having this potential.

Initially, the frame was made by metallic tubes of 22mm size class B.This means that even it seems to have a thin frame, it has high tolerance. Another special characteristic is that the engine transmits the movement by using 4 gears instead of 2 that we used to use. The reason is that we used a tyre which is wide enough not to allow the direct movement transmission. Thus, we made an axis that is spinned by the engine through a chain and then transmits the movement to the wheel from its wider part.

The most impressive thing is that while the axis is spinning the swing arm is moving with the wheel. The shock absorber is attached with the swing arm in order to achieve a satisfying road behaviour on our vehicle.
Additionally, with the concentric movement of the chain that moves the wheel and as the swing arm is moving, any change to the length of the chain is not allowed.

After many hours of work on every piece of our structure, we managed to reach an excellent outcome as we created a beautiful and functional, large of cubic capacity.
We painted it in the usual orange colour that all of our motorvehicles are painted. This might be one of the most beautiful creations that we made dedicated to all of our supporters and subscribers of our channel. Undoubtedly, we promise you that in the future we will make more motorcycles and other various vehicles.

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.
