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


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 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.
