Hey guys! I want to present to you my 2nd 1:1 scale replica of a household item, this time an electric jigsaw with a reciprocating blade. It's the cordless version and my inspiration are the awesome Black & Decker tools. As motorizing goes, it's quite fast, considering the blade is moved using an RC buggy motor. It holds the big battery box in the base and a switch is placed in the handle, in order to operate it. I also added a fake speed trigger, blade removal clamp and cutting guide bar. Although it's powerful, it's perfectly safe for children, as that Bionicle blade cannot even shred toilet paper or napkins, believe me, I tried :) And yes, it has a presentation video: If you want to see more, check out my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/braker23/albums/72157679539808126/with/32552239465/
Hey everyone! It's been a while since I presented one of my models here, but I believe this one should get your attention, as it's not something that you build everyday. It's my first life-size model, a fully functional electric fan. It features an on-off switch, 2 buttons for choosing the speed (low and high) and a switch for the oscillating motion. It uses an L motor placed in the base that drives a 2-speed high-torque gearbox, and an old 9V motor (71427) placed in the fan head, for the lateral movement. It's powered by a large BB, found in the base (naturally). It's quite heavy (around 2 Kg), but sturdy and reliable, so it can be used as a real fan (into high speed), as long as you don't mind replacing batteries too often :) But enough talk, check out the photos and video below.
