Making Hydraulic Cylinder




Introduction: Making Hydraulic Cylinder

About: Welcome to the Make it Extreme channel. Our channel aims to provide fun, inspiration and food for thought to our viewers by watching how structures are made in our workshop. Also, by making furniture, engi…

Our previous project gave us the chance to hold and modify longer pieces on the lathe. Using the particular construction, we decided to make a hydraulic plunger, which will be placed on a future construction that we are planning to make. The plungers and generally, the hydraulic systems are very useful tools as it is required great power and loads. These plungers have multiple uses in various machines and tools. The procedure of making a plunger is relatively simple.

Step 1: Start

First of all, to create our own plunger, we took a tube of 80mm x 60cm length, the suitable dimensions for the particular purpose. On the one edge, we made a thread while at the other end of the cylinder, we conglutinated a metallic cap. Also, from the one to the other end of the cylinder, we conglutinated two inputs, from which the oil passes through with pressure moving the axis of the hydraulic plunger forward and backward.

Step 2: Thread

Regarding the axis of the plunger that we used for our construction, it has 45mm diameter and 65cm length. We placed thread in both its edges. On the one edge, the component that is moved forward and backward in the cylinder is connected to it while at the front, we made a thread to be able to connect it to the machine that we are planning to make in the future.

Step 3: Hydraulic Cylinder

To sum up, even if our plunger gets damaged because of its use, it will be easily repaired and the damaged components can be replaced too. Although, it is a very simple construction, the hydraulic systems will give us the potential to make plenty extreme constructions in the future.

    Are all the "Make it Extreme" only ADS to sell the plans listed on the Youtube videos ? Everyone I have seen tells almost NOTHING and has a link to BUY THE PLANS on the video.
    The whole Make it Extreme are all ADS with pictures and NO INFORMATION.

    These are all SPAM !
