Man, this was an awesome instructable! I'm so glad you got your mixer going. Thanks for documenting your heroic plight. I love the schematic in step 9 (3). All the analog goodness in that picture makes it clear why it was worth fighting for.
This is awesome! I have questions about casting the handle though. Did you leave the styrofoam in the mold when you poured the aluminum? I would guess the styrofoam would just evaporate. But does that cause any risk of melted aluminum blowing out of the mold? Thanks.
In my case the pole was too short so I decided to climb the tree and cut. The holes in my blade were lined up perpendicular to the length of the blade and were too far apart to use a closet rod for the handle. Instead I found a scrap of 3/4" plywood that was about right.. I just used the pole saw blade to cut a kerf down the center ply on one end. Then I used a coping saw to cut a handle shape into it. While I was using it, I realized I should have filed the corners round first.. I'll fix that later, but for today it got the job done.
