Introduction: Bacon Alarm Clock
Finalist in the
As a college student this is the perfect way to wake up every morning who does not love bacon and who does not hate those annoying alarm clock sound well this is the answer to all your problems.
Just imagine waking up to the delicious smell of bacon and the sound of your personal "BAKON" (bacon baking alarm clock) oing oing oing!!!
No more waking up to the annoying sound of an alarm clock.
With BAKON you can get those extra 15 minutes to sleep instead of waking up early to make breakfast.
With BAKON just place your frozen bacon the night before set up the alarm and go to bed to then wake up to a ready to eat delicious peace crispy of bacon.
Step 1: What You Are Going to Need
Old Baking oven
Timer (like the one used for Christmas lights
High temperature car engine paint
Pig key-chain (got it at party city)
Spare bottle caps for the nose (i used an old blender cap)
10 gauge solid wire
Dremel (metal cutter)
Step 2: Get the Oven Ready
First find the screw that hold the cover of the oven take them out and detach the cover.
Find the location where you wanna install the timer and trace the out line to then cut the hole open with your dremel.
To get the cover ready to paint clean it with alcohol and lightly sand with and 200 grid sand paper until the surface is not shiny anymore then clean with alcohol again.
Paint the cover with you high temperature engine paint.
Paint the nose. and the legs.
Step 3: Get the Key Chain Ready.
Open the key chain and solder cables to make extensions for the speakers, the led lights and the switch.
The best choice for the battery case its to just use the body of the pig to hold them inside.
Step 4: Install Everything in the Oven
Find the best place to install the components of the key chain and drill holes for the speaker and the led lights.
I printed a transparency with the numbers for the oven and all the info that the oven had before the paint and i even made my own logo and name.
Also on the hole install your timer and connect the oven cable to the timer and then the timer to an electric extension that is gonna plug in the all as if it was the oven cable.
Step 5: Final Touches
The knob that activates the switch need to be modified, i added i little plastic piece that activates the switch when the cooking time is over.
With a hot glue gun put the oven cable and the 10 gauge solid cable together starting at the beginning where the cable comes out of the oven and then turn it to get that spring shape on the BAKON tail.
Put the cover back in the frame and make sure all you connections are ok.
Put the eyes, nose and ears and you are done.
Now time to test put your frozen bacon set your alarm in th oven 15 minutes before your waking up time and then enjoy a sweet morning full of delicious bacon.
