On metalloplast you can find a lot of unnecessary (and most importantly — inexpensive) stuff that will not be difficult to turn into useful tools for home, garage or workshop.
In this review we will consider how to make the drill press using the steering rack of the car found at the dump.
You may also be interested in another useful art project for workshop and home use, which can be made of gear grinders.
First, the author examines the steering rack. All items need to be cleaned, then lubricated and assembled back.
In the next step cut a piece of steel channel size. Drill hole and fasten the steering rack, setting her upright.
In the upper part of the housing drill drill two holes (opposite each other). On the rail you put on the washer, and fix its nut. It is also necessary to drill two holes.
Next, we need the two springs. One end of spring cling to the hole in the washer, and the other for holes drilled in the housing.
From nuts and three long bolts to make the wheel. Put it on the steering shaft. To the nut on the track rod weld a metal plate (Desk). It is necessary to weld a gusset plate which is welded to the second nut.
Then you need to make a clamp for fixing the drill. Disassemble all design, paint and collect back.
