This was a fun project and very quick to make.

I first cut a bit of beech approx 40×40 then I drilled a slightly offset hole to accept a coach bolt I then tightened it down with a nut and washer I then drove in two washer head screws, I used some sheet metal screws as they had a flat head for grip on the bottle cap but it took a while to drive them in because of the metal predicted profile on the end.

In the video to test it out I found I needed it on speed one on the highest torque and by just pressing the trigger slowly with better practise this could be done a lot quicker by and would e really impressive !

Measurements are not critical so have a play around and see what works best ! if you do make it then please send me an email or a message on YouTube I would love to see it !

Well it’s certainly DIFFERENT! :-)

Two things surprised me.
1. When you hammered that square bolt shaft into the clock that it didn’t split the block.
and
2. When you ran those 2 bolts into it for the “cap grabber” that THEY didn’t split the block also.

Pretty cool ! Would be a hit with the guys at a summer picnic.

I agree with Joeinga, it is different. Interesting idea.
