Metal Shaping and Fastening 103

  • August 3, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Samer's Workshop

Note: Since only 3 are attending I am moving this to my workshop so I don't have to lug my tools all over the place. Be sure to bring your frames and be ready to take back a working Kart.
In this class we take your frame and add to it. In this exercise we will build a chair with a curved back with some lightening holes. Those of you who want to make something that rolls for you or your kids you will make a seat for the vehicle, which is just the seat without legs and then we will rivet the seat to your frame. If you want it to be a chair, you will bolt (not rivet) 4 pieces of angle as legs for your chair. If you choose to make a chair, you can also make 4 legs for your frame and turn it into a table.

If you are making a kart you must, must, MUST have your rear wheels on. Some specifics:

Jason, get your axle in and bolt on your brake. Make sure your drive wheel is ON THE LEFT (as you face forward from the rear) if you want to use my engine. Everyone else, please go get (Jason, you do not need 14):

1) 1 piece of 1" aluminum square tube, 4ft long

2) 1 piece of 1" aluminum 1/16" angle, 4ft long

3) 2 of these: Rod and Tie Rod ends from Northern

4) This set from Northern:

5) This wheel from Northern:

6) 2 of these: (bearings for your steering)

7) 2 of these: and nuts for same (2)

8) Those of you who don't have spindles for your front steering, go get them

9) Wheels

10) Chain

11) Motor (except Jason). If you are using a gas motor, make sure it has a suitable centrifugal clutch with a sprocket that matches the one I gave you.

12) Those of you with band brakes will need 1 of these:

13) Those with drum brakes need this:

14) If you are using a gas motor you need a throttle cable.15) If you are using a gas motor, get this:

    Guys I had to move this to August 3 for scheduling as well as availability. That gives you guys an extra week to gather your goodies. Please be sure to have your rear axles installed so that we can do the front. Also if you have access to a 3D printer and are using the Azusa steering package, I have a mount for you to print.

    If any of you guys don't think you'll have the parts ready for when we have this session, we will finish the one Jason started instead. He can't make it after all and will leave the frame, wheels and all other parts I provided. I will bring my engine and steering parts and finish this puppy up.

      Had to wait for my paycheck to start getting parts. You gave me the a large drive sprocket, what size chain and centrifugal clutch do I need to purchase?

      July 8

    • Samer N.

      It's a #41 chain sprocket. The clutch should come with your engine if you choose carefully. Otherwise it too has to fit on your engine crankshaft and take a small #41 chain sprocket...8-10 teeth.

    I'm sorry to have to do this, but I must move this to later in the month or in August as I now have a conflict. So if that affects you please let me know.
