    Vacuum Material Handler

    Vacuum Material Handler

    This material handler design, created at this year's Farm Hack in Davis, CA, consists of a vacuum system to lift grain from a truck into to hopper below the vacuum unit. The vacuum unit is located above the machine of intended use (a grain cleaner for example). Once the vacuum hopper fills up, the vacuum is turned off and then a gate at the bottom of the vacuum hopper is opened and the grain falls down into the hopper of the grain cleaner. Areas left for research include: vacuum type, vacuum hopper geometry, vacuum hose type, automatic shut-off to prevent vacuum motor overheating, and dust safety considering static electricity. Vacuum systems like these are currently used in wood production and water related industries.

    Multimachine

    Multimachine

    The MultiMachine all-purpose machine tool that can be built by a semi-skilled mechanic with just common hand tools. The necessary material can come from discarded vehicle parts. Using engine blocks as building blocks is the first MultiMachine feature. Since cylinder bores are bored exactly parallel to each other and at exact right angles to the cylinder head surface, MultiMachine accuracy begins at the factory where the engine block was built. http://opensourcemachine.org/mm2html2/How_to_build_a_multimachine.html
