Las latas de refrescos deben reciclarse. La mayor parte de las veces el reciclado no nos beneficia en nada a nosotros, aunque sí al planeta. Una forma de obtener beneficio del reciclado de las latas,  es darles otra utilidad. En el Instructivo de hoy veremos como se puede fabricar una sencillas pesas para Fitness con una latas vacías.

Soda cans to be recycled. Most of the time, dropping a soda can in a recycle bin does not create any profit for us, although it does aid the planet. One way to get a return from the recycling of cans is to give them another utility. In this Instructionable today we will see how you can make a simple fitness weights with empty cans. step 1 MaterialsWe need:. Four cans of soda or beer (according to taste). Two pieces of PVC pipe of 29mm diameter or similar (Nominal 3/4" or 1" PVC pipe is about this size). Wood is also a good choice. 8 nails or screws 3x35 mm (exact size does not matter, but much over 2" will not fit inside the cans).. Ready-mix concrete .

Step 1: Materiales

Picture of Materiales


Necesitamos:
. Cuatro latas de refrescos o cerveza (según gustos)
. Dos trozos de tubo de PVC de 29mm diámetro o similar. También es válida la madera.
. 8 clavos o tornillos de 3x35 mm.
. Mortero en polvo. (También cemento y arena. 1/4 cemento + 3/4 arena)
. Agua para amasar el mortero

Step 2: Preparacion De Las Latas

Con un abrelatas, quitamos la parte de la lata donde está la anilla. Alisamos los bordes con unos alicates universales. No es necesario esmerarse mucho ya que quedarán tapados por el mortero. y no es peligroso.
Hacemos unos agujeros en los extremos del tubo y pasamos unos tornillos o clavos formando una cruz. El objetivo es que, al secar el mortero la unión con el tubo o madera, sea fuerte y no se desprenda  con el uso.

Step 3: Amasado Del Mortero Y Rellenado.

Amasamos el mortero y rellenamos dos de las cuatro latas. Introducimos el tubo o madera y dejamos secar. Transcurridas 24h. repetimos la operación con las otras dos latas.

Step 4: Para Aumentar El Peso

Con mortero estándar, se consiguen pesas de alrededor de 1 Kg. Si queremos aumentar el peso, podemos rellenar también el tubo y añadir piedras o trozos de metal al rellenar. Finalmente si queremos pesos extremos, podemos usar latas de conservas de mayor tamaño. ¡A disfrutar!

Está bueno el instructable, pero creo que mejoraría si fuera bilingüe. ¿no te animas a hacerlo? Yo uso http://translate.google.com/#es|en|, que si bien no es perfecto, ayuda muchísimo. Me ofrezco incluso a darte una mano, si te parece.

es verdad, el google deja muchisimo que desear, por suerte a mi me ayuda un amigo que sabe mucho de ingles, sino esta, me las arregle con lo poco que me acuerdo, igualmente estoy practicando ingles leyendo los libros de ingenieria que estan en ingles, que son lo peor del ingles tecnico

Yo a veces me siento tentado a quejarme del Google Translator, pero luego pienso que es una herramienta que hace unos pocos años era impensable. Y encima, gratis e instantánea, no se puede creer.

Sometimes I am tempted to complain about Google Translator, but then I think it is a tool that a few years ago was unthinkable. And besides, it is free and instantly, you can not believe.

yo en vez de quejarme mando las nuevas traducciones con la opcion proponer nueva traduccion, yo creo que con eso va a mejorar bastante dentro de uno o dos años

rimar2000 (author)notingkool2010-11-14

Sí, yo lo he hecho varias veces, pero como no acusan recibo y uno nunca se entera de qué pasó, terminé por no hacerlo más.

Yes, I've done it several times, but as they don't acknowledge receipt and one never knows what happened, I ended up not doing it.

Soda cans to be recycled.

Most of the time, dropping a soda can in a recycle bin does not create any profit for us, although it does aid the planet. One way to get a return from the recycling of cans is to give them another utility. In this Instructionable today we will see how you can make a simple fitness weights with empty cans.

step 1 Materials

We need:

. Two pieces of PVC pipe of 29mm diameter or similar (Nominal 3/4" or 1" PVC pipe is about this size). Wood is also a good choice
. 8 nails or screws 3x35 mm (exact size does not matter, but much over 2" will not fit inside the cans).
. Ready-mix concrete . (Or use cement and sand. 1 part cement to 3 parts sand)
. Water for mixing concrete

step 2 Preparation of the cans

With a can opener, remove the top of the beverage can. Smooth the edges with a pliers. No need to strive much as they will be covered by mortar and will not leave dangerous edges.

We'll make holes in the ends of the tube and insert a few screws or nails to form a cross. The goal here is that when the concrete has cured, the nails or screws keep the tubing or timber embedded into the concrete

step 3 adding the mortar.

Mix the mortar and fill two of the four cans. Insert the tube or timber and let dry. Wait at least 24 hours. Repeat with the other two cans.


step 4 increasing weight

Standard mortar are achieved weights about 1 kg ( about 2.2 pounds) If you want to increase the weight, we can also fill the tube and add stones or pieces of metal to fill. Finally, if you want extreme weights, we can use larger size cans. Enjoy!
