Does your child suffer from hemiplegia or does he have a broken arm?
Can’t he play with his friends at ping pong? This simple object will revolutionize his life.
Step 1: For This Project You Will Need:
- A table tennis racket
- a three-millimeter poplar wood plywood table
- a screw
- wood glue
- Laser cutter
The first thing to do is to design an octagonal box with inkscape (a software that can be downloaded for free on the internet).
To simplify you can go to a site called “boxes.py” and download the already-made project of an octagonal box.
Then you need to change the measures as it follows:
- height of the walls: 4 cm
- diameter of the octagon: 5 cm
- diameter of the bigger hole: 8.4 mm
-diameter of the smaller hole: 4.2 mm
Now you can cut the plywood plate with the laser cutter.
It is time to assemble the box. Probably you will need to fix the whole box with the help of wood glue.
Now your box is ready, you can fix it at the end of the racket. To do this you should make a hole with the drill in the handle of the racket, put the screw in the smaller hole and screw it with the screwdriver (that pass in the bigger hole).
Now your BALIBERI is ready to be used
