Introduction: Hydraulic Arm From Syringes
after getting my prize in spring cleaning challenge I'm more enthusiasm.If you are looking for easy to make and techy, this is the right place for you. All the material used is cheap and easily available at pharmacists.
Step 1: Material Required
10 ml syringes X 10
pipe (you can use the one used in water filters)
nuts and bolts
hot glue sticks
18mm drill bit
metal sticks(for wheels)
wooden sticks(for arms)
tools required -
- glue gun
- screw driver
Step 2: Holes for Syringes
Drill 5 holes on the smaller wooden plank with 18mm flat drill bit
Step 3: Fixing Syringes
for fixing syringes use very hot hard glue.paste the glue on the syringe ends
Step 4: Making the Base Plate
take the 2 pieces and join them with help of angle brackets and secure them with screws
Step 5: Making the Base for Crane Arm
Step 6: Making Base Arms of the Crane
first cut the 2pieces of size-27cm. now drill 3 holes at distances of 2cm,12cm,25.5cm respectively from base in each as shown above.add the screws on all the holes as shown
Step 7: Making the Middle Arm for Crane

Step 8: Grabber(hand of the Crane)
for making the grabber you need to kind of thin wood of size 9cmX6cm . now with help of a chisel cut out small squares out of that as shown above.now make them smooth with help of a filer.you need 2 same size pieces and a square block. join them with hot glue as shown in next step
