Hello, dear readers and DIY!
I am sure that among You there are many fishing enthusiasts.
When fishing feeder tackle, it often happens that the bite begins in the moment when You are not near rod. Accordingly, the moment passed.
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “DOMOVENOK DIY” will tell You how he made a mechanism to allow for hooking the fish at the time of the bite, and hold it without Your participation.The following two animations will demonstrate this mechanism in action.
On them you can clearly see how bent the rod, even getting the wave shape at the time of operation of the mechanism. Of course, the animated series slowed down several times, in reality everything is much faster.If You are intrigued by this idea, following the instructions, you can easily repeat such a mechanism, however, will need small amount of welding.
— Steel profiled tube 20X20 mm
Faulty electrodes or steel wire
— Spring, 140-mm nail, chain
Bolts, washers, nuts M8
Clip for water pipe, heat shrink tube. The tools used by the author.
— An angle grinder, cutting disc for metal
— Drill, cobalt drill
— Vise, auto Kern, pliers, pliers, wire cutter, file, hacksaw
— Technical fan
— Belt grinding machine
— A ruler, caliper, marker. The process of making.
So, the material for the strut and rocker arm of this mechanism will serve as a steel shaped tube 20X20 mm.
The author cut out using the grinder billet rack length 750, and rocker — 450 mm. the ends of the parts stripped from the burrs with a file.At the edges of the blanks are drilled through holes with a diameter of 8 mm.a short distance from the lower edge of the rack are three holes for mounting and adjusting the tension of the spring.The rocker arm also rotates 90 degrees, and in its center is a hole for mounting to the rack.For the manufacture of the trigger will need steel wire. The author uses for this purpose a common electrode, with which he knocks the plaster.Detail of the mechanism is easily bent with pliers and the pliers.The result is that such a simple element with two rings.The end of this part should be turned and sanded, so he clung to the ring, and the descent was very easy.Of the same material master produced two staples.The long bracket needs to be a couple of centimeters greater than the distance between the rings (it turned out later). Then it becomes clear why.So both brackets are welded to the bottom of the rocker arm, at a distance of about 120 mm from each other.For a small bracket to hang the ring of the trigger mechanism.Locked in the cocked position mechanism with such a 140 mm stud.
Now important point. For perfect and easy operation of the mechanism, the nail should be parallel to the yoke. That is why the second clip should be a little longer.The author has tried to bend the ring, but it was not enough.In the end had to cut off part of the ring grinder. Now everything is smooth.Next you need to cut the hat and nose of the nail, and cut places to grind.Then, at a distance of 10 mm from the end of the resulting rod is welded cut in half section chrome chain.The corner where the chain is joined with the rod, should be thoroughly cleaned. The chain should pull over to the bracket on the yoke. So get minimal lever in this place, and will decrease the clamping force of the second end ring.Now you can pre-check the operation of the mechanism.Next, the wizard attaches the rocker to the top of the stand by M8 screws, placing a washer, and locking it with the nut.Temporarily bolt is tightened so that the yoke was firmly fixed relative to the column at an angle of 90 degrees, and the mechanism is in the cocked state.
The author then measures and cuts the chain to about the middle of the rack. In this place its end and welded.Now the bolt is loosened and made a trial operation.One of the holders of the rod will serve as a conventional clip for plastic pipes, the author establishes at the end of the rocker arm.The second holder can be made of plastic, but the author didn’t find the right part and it was welded to the rocker square shaped tube.The heart of podskachila is that such a “door” spring to be common in hardware stores.
Its length is 300 mm.One of her ear clings to the hole on the shank of the rocker arm, and the second is fixed with a bolt to the rack.So it looks and works completely ready device. Before application all surfaces should be cleaned with sandpaper, degrease, and apply a couple of layers of spray enamel or primer for metal.At the tip of the descent, around which encircles the cord or fishing line, the master wears and seats of conventional heat shrink tubing. It will allow you to avoid damage the fishing line or cord.For a complete set of the author also made from a steel angle simple peg with a hole for a bolt at the top.Finally, everything is ready for testing. Peg is hammered into the ground and joins him stand. The bolt should be properly tightened.Then the mechanism is translated into “combat” position. The direction of the rocker must be in the same cast feeders.After casting gear rod is mounted on the rocker podskachila, and the cord is tightened coil.It remains to trace the tense cord or fishing line around the trigger and quietly wait for the fish to bite.For what need three holes in the rack? They will allow you to adjust the force of the tension spring and speed sweeps. Also with less spring tension increases the sensitivity of the mechanism to bite.By the way, not everyone from fishing enthusiasts good eyesight, and obedient hands. And when winter fishing stiff hands very difficult to attach the hooks. For this it is convenient to always have with you here is pocket device. With its help you can easily tie the hook to clean his ear, and trim the excess fishing line.But such a machine for tying hooksis a bit large, but they are even easier to attach the hooks, especially in large quantities.And this is one of the author caught fish.Thank master for detailed guidance on making podskachila!I wish all good mood, sound health, and no tail, nor scales!
