Making a simple Dining Table



After a long time, we have finally decided to make a piece of furniture for the house and it could not be any other than a dining table 4.

Our creation is relatively easy in order to help other people to make this table by themselves as well. Firstly, we made a metallic frame with square tubes of 2mm thick. The legs were created with square tubes of 70mm x 40mm while the frame which was welded to the legs, was made with square tubes of 40x40x2mm thick. The frame was painted in matte black colour. The wood used for the table is a wooden plate, which was made by various kinds of wood that were welded together. The wood used was taken by pine trees. 

Finally, after treating the wood, we painted it with water soluble, colourless varnish. Therefore, the 0125 project ended giving us a simple but fine outcome.

Angle Grinder Hack 8



After so long we are returning back in making angle grinder hacks with the difference now that we are turning the angle wheel into a useful multi-tool. Using an easily adjustable construction, our angle grinder turns into a multi-tool. It is an affordable solution as buying a multi-tool is quite expensive. 

The benefits that we get modifying it is that we are able to cut precisely the shapes of the materials which are in various angles on a wood, metal, plasterboard for placing the plugs, switches and many other things. Another advantage is that with this tool we can cut and rub objects something which was not applicable to be done by the angle grinder.

Therefore, choosing to use multiple accessories that are located on the multi-tool, the angle grinder is turned into an exceptional sander that is able to rub places with angles which would not be easily accessible to common sanders. Making a cam we transform the rotating motion of the angle grinder into a reciprocating motion copying the motion of the factory’s multi-tool. Regulating the speed of the angle grinder, we can control the regressions per minute from 6000-22000 increasing the performance and the usability of the tool.

Beside the usefulness of this creation, we got an extra benefit from the various knowledge we have gained during making it and the pleasure we got creating it. In this way, we completed our creation with the number 0124, which is ready to function and the outcomes are amazing.

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.
