About: Innovative Projects, Diy's, Life Hacks

It's that time of the year again.

In this Instructable, we'll make a "Stuck hand in a meat grinder" prop.

What's needed:

  • 2 x Pringles cans (1 small, 1 normal size)
  • 1 x Large Funel
  • 1 x Wooden spatula
  • Bolts, Nuts, Spray paint etc.

Step 1:

I took a small Pringles can and drilled holes in the bottom.

Step 2:

I shortened a bolt and glued in the center of the can.

(That will be the shaft)

Step 3:

Then it was painted

Step 4:

I cut off the bottom of a large funnel. Then I used a large Pringles can wrapped with sandpaper to do some saading.

Step 5:

I drilled a few holes in the Pringles lid and cut out a circle.

Then I covered the circle with masking tape and cut out another circle.

I put it back into the lid.

I put paper binding pins into the holes drilled earlier.

Then the lid was glued to the can.

Step 6:

I glued the funnel to the can

Step 7:

I drilled a hole a glued a bolt.

Purpose of the bolt - suggests that a feet/clamp can be attached to the grinder.

Step 8:

I used a wooden spatula to make the handle.

I drilled holes in the spatula and another Pringles lid.

PVC pipe and a large bolt was used to make the handle.

Step 9:

I cut a hole in the can to make some space for the hand.

Step 10:

Then it was painted silver

Step 11:

I removed the circle and used Play-foam type of product to emulate meat.

Step 12:

The I put it all together.

That's it!

Stick your hand into the grinder and go for a walk.
