Instructables

Two birds with one stone (dos p�jaros de un tiro)

A medida que voy haciendo y acumulando cosas, tengo cada vez menos lugar en mi casa para ellas. Nada nuevo bajo el sol. Yo bromeo diciendo que es una manera de asegurarme de que mis deudos me lloren en día de mi muerte, de solo pensar que tendrán que deshacerse de todas esas "porquerías".

El torno no es una excepción, pero tiene el agravante de su peso, que no lo sé con precisión pero debe andar alrededor de 20 Kg. Yo, con mis 66 años (y medio), no estoy en condiciones de hacerme el forzudo levantándolo en brazos para llevarlo de un lugar a otro, por ejemplo cuando necesito usar la mesa para cortar maderas. En cualquier momento me da una contractura en la cintura o en la espalda, y quedo fuera de combate por dos o tres días.

Así que pensé una solución, y acá va, en la esperanza de que le sea útil también a alguno de ustedes:


As I'm doing and accumulating things, I have less and less space in my house for them. Nothing new under the sun. I joked that it is a way to make sure my relatives cry in my dying day, just thinking they will get rid of all those "junk."

The lathe is no exception, but has added its weight, I do not know precisely but must walk about 20 kg. With my 66 years (and some months), I am unable to get me into the strong man lifting it in arms to carry from one place to another, for example when I need to use the table to cut wood. Anytime I get a contracture at the waist or back, and I am knocked out by two or three days.

So I thought a solution, here goes, in the hope that it will be useful to some of you:

Perfect job! This is just what my workshop needs.

Also your ceiling looks amazing. Did you use Shellac or some kind of polyurethane finish?

Thanks for your comment.

I use CETOL, an insecticide wood protection. I don't know what is its active drug

Wonderful idea, thank you.
Also, Thank you for translating. I am ignorant in Spanish. It would be a shame to miss such a great idea.
I also like the "gearing" for the lathe speed control. Haven't seen that before. It would be so easy to make and cheaper than buying pulleys.
All around, a great instructable.

Thanks for your comment, greypoet.

Today I am still using this appareil, with a thicker rope.

The double cone driver was changed last month because it is good to vary the speed but not so for convey force. I made a double 4 pulleys rig.

Today the rope is a bit thicker, I changed it when translated the device to my new workshop. I think it will endure many years.

Thanks for comment.
What  I meant was ;

You are standing under that heavy lathe

that is held in place by a small  Worm-Gear !

And I Pray  the gear friction keeps it from un-winding

and accidentally coming  down on your head :-)

Thanks for your concern, iceng, but that worm-gear is not so little, it is enough strong to last some centuries. It is used to manage the folding awnings, even under wind.
In my home country ( which no longer exists )
There was humor about hanging a battle sword above the main door.
The family would fear that each day the sword would come down and kill someone.

I hope to have by the end of this year my own place to work, 3 x 4 m and a mezzanine to accumulate things.

Es muy buena idea !
Voy a utilizar esta técnica para elevar mi kayak ya que siempre necesito que uno mas me dé una mano tanto para bajarlo como para colocarlo en unos soportes fijos que tengo en el techo del garage.
No tengo muy claro como se queda allá arriba sin volverse por su peso para abajo. pero consultaré en alguna casa de herrajes.

Hola CHE, no se viene abajo porque es a tornillo sinfin, entonces la fricción siempre es mucho mayor que la fuerza que puede hacer en el sentido de girar. El aparatito lo compré en calle 18 casi 35, lo pagué 80 o 90 pesos. Es de buena calidad, pero después de usarlo lo tuve que bajar para borrarle con la lima algunas rebabas que tenía el sinfin., porque cada media vuelta daba un saltito. Lo traduzco al yoni abajo porque algunos se molestan si no entienden.

Hello CHE, it does not comes down because to auger, then the friction is always much greater than the force that can be done in the direction of spin. The gadget I bought at Calle 18 almost 35, I paid 80 or 90 pesos. It is of good quality, but after using it I had to download the file to erase some burrs that had the worm, because every half turn gave a little jump.

Muy buena la idea de utilizar el elemento de tolderia. Asi podes levantar mucho peso con poco esfuerzo. Siempre haces cosas muy interesantes, Rimar!

Gracias, cpotoso. "La necesidad tiene cara de hereje". Si yo tuviera mucho dinero no me tomaría tantas molestias, daría todo a hacer.

Thank cpotoso. "Necessity has the face of heresy." If I had a lot of money I don't would take so much trouble, give it all to do.

Gracias, cpotoso. Me estrujé el cerebro bastante tiempo, porque con engranajes también se podría hacer, pero existe el peligro de que se te suelte la manija y se venga todo abajo. El tornillo sinfín va quedan frenado permanentemente.

Ahora estoy pensando en aplicar esta misma solución a los depósitos colgantes que tengo en el garage, realmente eso me ayudaría mucho. Pero tal vez me anime a fabricar un reductor de esos, no es fácil pero tampoco tecnología espacial.

Thank cpotoso. I squeezed the brain enough time, because it could be done with gears, but there is a danger that you release the handle and come all the way down. The worm will remain braking permanently.

Now I'm thinking of applying same solution to the hanging deposits that I have in the garage, it really would help me a lot. But maybe encourage me to make a reducer of these, it is not easy but neither space technology.
