:: Street-Chestnut baker from a 200 l barrel 2.gallery
The opportunity was given, a well known restaurant from the city wanted me to manufacture a chestnut baker from 200 l oil barrels. The challenge was that the design should fit the atmosphere of the restaurant and of the city and of course it should bake delicious chestnuts as well. The barrels were parted into 3 parts, from the bottom to the top: ashholder, fire area, chestnut baker. I made 15x15 mm rings from profile, on them I welded 2mm thick circles from sheet. All these were given in advance a special form according to their function. Finally these profile rings were fixed on the side of the barrel with M6 screws. At the bottom, for the sake of the design, I made 40mm holes to help the circulation of the air. The edge of the chestnut baker plate is made of 10mm dia. steelrod, the side of a 2mm sheet, the grill a 2mm perforated sheet. The lid 6mm dia. steelrod, on this I welded from a 1mm sheet a concave shape, made with the help of my englishwheel. The upper part was given a chimney and a chimney holder, on the bottom I fixed 2 wheels for easy transportation. The dominant colours are the black and silver. I loaded 2 photo galleries to have a better look at the work process itself. Hope you like it !!!
I would like to present to you our 2015 model hole saw style tube notcher. This tool is the perfect tube notching machine for steel fabricators that needs to assemble and weld tubes one to another at varying angles. This model can be mounted on a bench with four 12mm dia threaded screws or with some quick clamps and powered by a portable drill.
The main base of this tube notcher is made of a 15mm plate steel, degree plate from 12mm steel, industrial needle bearings that are replaceable. The spindle is made of a 25mm dia stainless steel rod polished shaft for life longevity.
The shaft end has two kinds of threads depending of the threads of the hole saw needed. This notcher can notch at different angles in a very short time (20-40sec) and has a capacity of 80mm OD tube or 80mm square profile side. We can help you with a big variety of different size hole saws, and we will give the sizes also in inch and mm.
The 2015 model tube notcher has a very unique vise that can move back and forth, up and down adjusting the centerline of our specifique tube or profile. Of course we can do offset notches also where the centerlines of the assambled tubes do'nt meet. On the main base of the vise are mounted two pairs of lasercut circle looking plates, that can be turned 45 degree, depending of the notching material: tube or square profile.
Another possibility of using this vise removing the back pair of circle, we can notche tubes that are allready bended forming different arc shapes. With the magnetic angle finder and a little helper included to this tool we have the possibility to notch both ends of our tube on parallel or other different angles.
Please take a look to our photos and to the moovie file.
In this case the task was to manufacture hooks from roundbar with a diameter of 8mm, in two lenght. After many trials I managed to make a fixing point at the corner of the slot, and the bending is made from one root (close to the bending point)by a bearing roll with the help of a power-handlebar. The second phase is the breaking of the hookstem so that the already hanged hook should stand vertically to the hanging point. The breaking of the 2 types of lenght is ensured by 2 types drilled powerbars. This process was a challengingly kind and visual one.
