Scrap made pedal powered smoothie maker
« on: October 13, 2013, 06:30:59 PM »
Arch and were at St Nicholas Fields Apple Day yesterday making pedal powered smoothies with my scrap built smoothie maker.

Much fun was had by the visitors making their own smoothies and for the kids who couldn't reach the pedals I helped them hand crank.
I will fit a seat tube to the spine to add an extra saddle that kids can use as required, then see if they have the strength to pedal a smoothie! ;)

Just as the day ended we noticed a 'misfire' in the blender and closer investigation showed that the rubber drive dog in the base of the jug had finally perished.  Maybe it isn't really up to the power a good cyclist can put through the drive wheel! 8)  I will make a replacement in something a little stronger. ;D
If it ain't broke, you're not hitting it hard enough!
