What about a marerial which is more tough? Bambus for example, too id maybe cut the wooden part a bit longer since its much more flexible than the metal shaft to prevent the difference between the both materials and twistabiltys? I hope that makes sense, funny idea tho. What about a giant spring as shaft? That would be interesting too
Use the same type of beam but run it through a lathe until its perfectly straight.
could soak the 4x4 in penetrating epoxy maybe
You could have taken a word turning tool like a bowl gouge and while it was on the rack. Turned the 4x4 down. That would have help balance it out.
balance it, wrap it with fiberglass, and you'll be good. use type 3 wood glue instead of resin though lol with denim instead of fiberglass
Start with a 6 x 6, turn it down on a lathe. Insert into ends and bolt/glue like you did. Coat entire shaft with jb weld & turn on lathe again. Then install & try it.
Now test wi-fi SEMA driveshaft.
14:33 if you have other things to do today
Should have put a bolt threw the metal an wood
What if you get some plates and wrap the board with 4 or 5 plates. That might help.
next time try whit a different tipe of wood .on jalisco mexico there is a wood the we called CUATE this wood is so hard the even a chainsaw can’t cut it
You guys need to use a different type of wood that is stronger, 4x4s are not the best for what your trying to do and have the shaft lathed so the shaft is true. Avoid drilling holes threw it it will brake the grain and cause week spots in the wood. Not sure what to recommend for would but ash might be a good start
>>>>> *IDEA!!* <<<<<<-What if- you *MUST* make one out of newspaper and epoxy... Roll it into a tube or log, and install. This new material... _Cleetus-Carbon Fiber material!?!?!_Laminated wood in many layers with grain pattern resisting the torsional forces would work better. As you saw the wood grain is running the wrong direction for the strength you want, thus it laminated and exploded. Basically you want to make a composite material with wood and epoxy.
Short lived but enough content lol
wood drive shaft white pvc pipe arouwnd it
Try better wood like oak
Probably a few cars in Cuba running around on this. Very slowly;)
if it were pressure treated wood and you got it centered up better..... maybe survive a burn
This episode sponsored by Garage 54.
well guys you need to use a hard wood and use a torch to harden the wood dont burn the wood but close .i do same for cheap arrowsgreen wood gets strong just saying that was a bad azz thing to watch
That piece of wood is not pressure treated. If it were pressure treated, it would have holes in it and it would be a brown color.
You guys are too funny
why not glue a bunch of hardwood strips together and turn them round on a large lathe then install it.
I'd love to see a episode using large rocks as wheels and tires
Take a piece of white oak use a 4"x4" and have it turned to the ID of your shaft ends. Try home depot they have different "Hobby Wood" I get all my wood for making different cutting Boards serving Trayswall art skateboards and more.Love the U tube and the merch. Gunna go get a couple shirts from Yall. Dot it for Dale, God bless Murica, Tell the Children cooper and james I said Howdy. Thanks Brother.
