Step 2: Gain access to the mechanical insides

I did this using a hand drill and unscrewing the bottom. At times I had to find a hand drill with a longer neck to be able to reach the screws which were sometimes several centimeters within the plastic casing.
Sometimes the screws are concealed behind the rubber feet of the blender. Pry them out if you can't see any other access points and just to be sure there are not any extra screws behind them holding the casing in place.

Once the cover was removed, I was met with a second thick black plastic casing around the mechanical parts surrounding the blender shaft. This was also secured on by screws. I unscrewed it working odd and extreme angles due to the outer plastic case. Just bare with it and remove the wires from all the orifices : the buttons should come right out and once out you can work your drill through one of the buttons to be able to unscrew the black casing around the mechanical parts. Basically get creative and do whatever it takes to get the black casing off. Push, pull, twist - these things are pretty rugged and the plastic will take quite a bit.
Why are you wearing a helmet in step 3 using tools, but not in step 10 where you are actually riding a bike?
<p>That is exactly the question that sprung to my mind...</p><p>Anyway, hilarious project, made my day</p>
Great idea - but the only drawback I see is having to cock the leg up to shoulder height - before spinning it over the frame while mounting the bike - unless of course, you forget...<br> <br> &quot;Arrrggghhhhh dammit! That is the third blender jug I have broken this week...&quot;<br> <br> Etc.<br> <br> Perhaps a tough plastic bag and a pounding with the fist might make a good blender..<br>
If you could paint as well, you would be able to paint, exercise, and make blended drinks: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvbL_5rH1QQ" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvbL_5rH1QQ</a><br>
