    Understanding the cost factor, but steel bushings on a stainless linear rod, without substantial/continuous lubrication, performance characteristics will degrade exponentially, ultimately causing a catastrophic bind and perhaps warp, bend or crack the mechanism. I know they're expensive, but I'd replace the bushings with closed, stainless 1.5" ID linear bearing and avoid the forthcoming pitfalls altogether. If you're dead set on the bushing approach, I'd recommend inserting several greasezerk fittings into the parallel tubes, with teflon wipes, to at least provide some lubrication and decrease contamination of the bushings.

    How are you going control the legs , arms and have the mech support itself? I think it would be way to heavy for someone to carry the entire thing by themselves but their legs also control the legs of the mech.

    You guys are totally nuts! I guess it's part of the process to work out all that angst from hours of promising designs only to have frustrating builds. I love the way you edit your videos now to remove extraneous crap. That once round propane tank looking almost square was pretty cool. But I'd have avoided the lithium battery pack due to unpredictable nature. I wish I had a hydraulic section of a store that you guys found for yourself. I paid at the wazoo every time I had to replace hydraulic lines for my 1970 Ford 4500 loader. It's so much cheaper buying premade lengths of hose than to have any custom-made. I would like to see a price breakdown on the parts you guys put into these builds. That would prove very interesting I feel. Greal work, guys. Keep at it!

    Instead of making the jaws perfectly parallel, it would have been better to have them slightly out of parallel, with the tips of the jaws meeting first.
    That way, when you have flex, the jaws become closer to parallel.

  • Brian Wieden
    Brian Wieden 18 days ago

    Excellent, watched all 5 videos, why did you not look for pre existing hydraulic machines from say car manufacturing plants, obviously obsolete or damaged ones you could repair & retrofit, was it the cost ?, also plate aluminium, it would have been a hell of a lot lighter ?, a guy in Australia made a articulated T- 800 & cast most of the aluminium himself, I recommend giving it a look. But great job guys, I look forward to the rest of the series, cheers.

  • Richard Rawlings
    Richard Rawlings 19 days ago +1

    Great work. The tab A into slot B method was excellent. I've been in on some new construction, custom fabrication, patented processing methods, and general assembly. Since I've worked as a machinist, welder, fitter and layout man, I'd like to contribute a few impressions; 1.) Is this arm really designed for the task of loading? Because those forks don't seem like they'd slide under anything. 2.) 20K force is overdoing it to crush soda cans and Apple products. And, likely, anything else a functional walking forklift might encounter. 3.) On that note, the arm seems overbuilt. It could be lightened, lines smoothed (so it doesn't tear up the cargo or the workspace) and made more efficient. 4.) Efficiencies like using bearings (excellent economy) and screw jacks to expand and contract the clamps. That arm might be able to manipulate 20k lbs. But can it walk it anywhere? (think; curling 20lbs vs holding 20lbs at arms length. While running.) Point; creating a torso and legs capable of handling that lifting ability (and manipulating the weight of that assembly) seems daunting to unlikely.
    Overall, outstanding production job. I just wish you were in the Seattle area. I'd love to visit your shop. OBTW: if you want to get an impression of the loaded cargo/unit balance issue, try driving an early wheeled Bobcat loader with a full scoop of gravel. With the scoop held above eye level. I know I was entertained the first time I tried it. Well, cheers, Pulski Polski, and Uff Da!

    Love your work and love this. Though I have a few questions. 1. would powder coating be better once its fully done? 2. would you need to design a duel chamber 360 rotating fitting that fits in the center of the gear plate as to not break the lines when doing a 360 spin of the loader jaws. 3. how are you going to protect the parts attached to the outside? 4. What about interchangeable jaws like cutting jaws, chainSaw jaws, buz saw blade jaws, ext? Your Jaws of life idea could make this a practical heavy rescue tool for dealing with things like train wrecks, building collapse, nature ect.
    If you can figuare the mobility issue i can see this being a huge help fighting forest fires. you could even make a fire fighting design as well. the possibilities are there.

    Very well done. But, as you said in the opening video "forklift trucks are more practical". So, why not replace the forks with the loader arms. Having "articulated forks" on a truck may be commercially viable. I would still like to see the full power loader realized though. Good luck!
