Children impeller build from wood itself

His grandson or child fulfill a little dream, while at the same time do something for the fitness and the sense of balance of the little ones. Are not these the basic preconditions for a good gift? If you then also can build together such a gift, everything is actually perfect.

The impeller is a bolted construction of plywood. The 12-inch wheels are parts of commercial standards "Puky" children's bikes and were ordered at bicycle shops. The individual parts which must be recorded on the outer contour of the plywood sheet and cut out with a jigsaw impeller are indicated as blank dimensions in the material list. If several parts of a position exists, the plywood sheet should be chosen so large that a plurality thereof can be recorded on a disk.

With a little patience and attention to detail you have got a nice, cross-generational workshop project

Step 1: Sign template transferred to wood

Children impeller build from wood itself

1.1 Transfer by means of a copying wheel (Sewing supplies) or copying paper
the outer contours of the curved parts of the drawing on the
Plywood. then you saw with the jigsaw in combination with a curved saw blade, the individual parts. Inaccurate or wavy spots in the
Contour regrinding.

1.2 Transfer the individual parts that are needed twice, the outer contour with the first part to plywood. Like parts are clamped together and
again with a hand sanding block and coarse sandpaper grit P80,
ground at the edges.

1.3 For the seat are four identical sheets of 18 mm thick birch plywood
cut out and glued to each other in width. When the glue has dried, you can place the seat with rasp and file or an edge grinder in the final form.

Step 2: Frame saw out from the impeller

2.1 On the frame and fork parts, the positions of the drill holes are
and on the inner surfaces of the positions of the steering mounting and braces
the fork being characterized. Drill in the items of the frame and fork
the holes for the screws (ø = 3,5 mm) and for the axes and seat mounting (ø = 8 mm).

2.2 Saw the pursuit of the fork and the frame with a table or circular saw on the multifunction table to. Mark the bore holes on the
Strive for and drill the mounting holes (diameter = 8 mm) for the fork.
For height adjustment single slot must be cut in the seat post. For this, the slot is marked on the board and a hole at the top and bottom end (diameter = 8 mm) drilled.

2.3 The gap is cut out with a jigsaw. On the front side of the fork is a cover. In the middle of this covering, a decorative hole is drilled or either one can attach a cat's eye thereon. a hole in each case at the upper ends of the fork (Ø = 25 mm) for the handlebar
drilled.

Step 3: grinding and gluing

3.1 All edges with a hand sanding block or a laminate trimmer round.
Sand the surfaces with a random orbit sander, final sanding grit
P 180. gluing the struts of the fork with the front cover. The items for the assembly of the frame are laid out for assembly.
Indicate on the joint surfaces wood glue.

3.2 Clamping one side of the frame with the first strut and screw the compounds (spax 3.5 x 30). The second side is clamped, aligned and screwed together. So that the frame is assembled and can be set aside to dry. The two parts of the fork are connected in the same way with the struts.

3.3 In the upper narrow surface of the seat post three holes for wooden dowels (8 x 40) to be drilled. Insert dowels peaks in these holes, set up on the saddle and press it down you. On the seat bottom, you now have the prints where you need to drill dowel holes. 

Step 4: Mount the saddle

4.1 Glue them the plugs first into the seat post. Enter into the dowel holes in the saddle and on the bonding surface enough glue and clamp everything with a ferrule. In order to emphasize the parts better, the surfaces are colored or transparent painted before assembly.

4.2 Make sure that for each screw, always where the machine screw strikes the wood, a washer comes in between. Insert fork and frame, and slide the two mounting screws through the holes. Insert the bolt a washer first and then tighten the lock nut on.

4.3 Cut the spacers for mounting the seat post with a
Hacksaw to. As spacers can be either an iron pipe or a distance sleeve (M10 X 30) are taken. Remove the seat post as a as shown in the drawing.

Step 5: attach wheels and handlebar

5.1 Now remove a front and rear wheel and tighten all screws. You must make sure that the wheels can rotate freely. The handlebar is rounded large at the both ends. Then plug it it through the two holes in the fork and push it to the correct position.

5.2 Mark this position with a small line on the handlebar and move it then to about 12 mm. Enter now all around between the fork and the marking glue on the handlebar and push him back.

5.3 If it is in the hole for the handlebar clamp too much play You can link
also secure from behind with a 5 mm wooden dowels through the fork.
