In this season it rains a lot. And when a couple is sharing one umbrella the result is wet. So no more trying to walk arm in arm huddled under a mini brolly whilst one of you gets wet. This umbrella has a dual handle so that both of you keep dry yet it is still around the same size as a normal umbrella. It is very efficient and drags the attention as well.
Step 1: Materials
The maine materials needed for my project were:
- 2 umbrellas (i had the blue one home so i just had to find the same umbrella in the shop. Unfortunately i couldn't find the same model in red, as i wanted but i found it in yellow - which wasn't that bad)
- 1 indoor antenna
- glue gun - it was the most used thing in the project
Other tools were used depending on the work i done :
- Sewing tools....
Otherwise the double umbrella came up very cheap.
The umbrella costed $2 (for two thats $4)
The antenna $1.5
I had the other stuff at home so no money wasted on this.
Step 2: Disassembling Umbrellas
This type of umbrellas' handle was made of ball with carving that is screwed to a plastic cap on the shaft. The cap itself is attached to the shaft with a metal pin. So what i had to do is unscrew the handle, remove the pin and the plastic cap.
Step 3: Disassebling the antenna
All i neede from the antenna was the plastic splitter and the metal part where the nickel plated brass dipoles are attached to the splitter. I started with unscrewing the dipoles. I took the part i needed and removed the cable.
