...no, not me, youSmile
A member asked if we could have a thread for this so here it is.
Kiwi ingenuity knows no bounds & it would be good to have people share their #8 wire technology.

That's great GG but you have something the wrong way round .... the answers to lifes problems aren't on TV  ... they ARE at the bottom of a beer bottle.

Good thread Uncle. One I wished I had have thought of myself.

Well. I haven't just been working on this one today, but I did give its first kick in the guts today.  Kiwi #8 wire job this one, very satisfying.  Still needs a bit of tweaking, but with a $5 BBQ, a $50 garage door motor, a king-size berley mincer, a $30 2nd hand bike sprocket, a bit a this, a bit a that, and you have . . . 

The Burley-Meister


Photo above is the total concoction. The steel BBQ frame was essential for providing a good solid base.


Mincer is mounted on threaded bolts to allow tweaking of levels & alignment, so that the chain feeds properly, and wing-nuts ollow easy removal for cleaning. The stell bracket it bolts to was one that was kicking around my workshop, and by slicing a 50mm swathe through the centre & re-welding it, it fits a treat.  The BBQ grill also allows for easy adjustments.


It took me a long time to hit on the garage door opener as the motor of choice.  The motor had to be bi-directional, so that if anything jams, I can reverse it.  Also, these things have a load switch - ever grabbed a door as it was closing?  Motor stops & reverses.  The remote control receiver on this one doesn't work, hence the good price, and I don't need that.  But it came with all the other gear, so I was able to shorten the strut to bolt it to the underside of the grill, to help brace the whole thing.

Got the jig-saw onto the grill, and cut out a couple of the bars, to be able to feed the chain through.  I had to get a round plate made by an engineering workshop, and brazed onto the inner side of the pulley.  Then the bile sprocket screwed straight onto that. Think it is 47 tooth, about the second biggest I could find, for better gearing than straight speed.


Took these photos at 7.45 tonight, so apologies if they are not very clear.  I will try to change them for daylight ones when I can.

I also have a brief movie of it running, but I haven't been able to figure out how to upload movies yet - its nearly 8 MB.  Any help anyone?

Looking forward to giving it a full trial on a few old KY frames etc.  Hopefully, it won't be a big lemon.

[QUOTE=Argonautica] But imagine the cleanup,

Well, l reckon clean up shouldn't be any worse motorised versus manual, because of the way its set up, ie butterfly nuts for easy removal from the base. The idea was to do a bulk lot at a time, but thats hard on the arm doing it manually. When l do its first real run, l'll try to video it.

A natural wood stick bait and another larger one I am working on.  I have no idea whether they will work or not but I've had a good bit of fun working on them
