Introduction: Milk Pouring Machine
For my design class, I had to create a machine that would help people with arthritis do simple tasks. I decided to make one that would make it easier for people to pour milk without having to ask someone for assistance. To use it, you use a handle to push the milk bottle down onto a rectangular prism and that makes the milk pour into the bowl.
You will be making this using wood, and the extra supplies you'll need are:
- a cutting knife
- milk bottle
Step 1: Cut Out!
Gather all your wood and cut it into pieces as shown above:
Step 2: Glue Together
Get your two biggest pieces of cardboard and glue the end of them together using a glue gun, holding it down for a couple of minutes. Also using a glue gun, glue the handle on the top piece of cardboard.
Step 3: Adding String!
Using a pencil to make a hole at the back of the machine, you will now put the string through it. You can use the string to help pull the top box down.
Step 4: Adding the Holders
After that, you need to attach two holders that will help the milk stay in the middle, glue them on using a glue gun.
Step 5: Cutting Out Rectangular Prisms
Cut out two small rectangular prisms using the paper to guide you. These will help hold the milk carton when it falls.
Test it out by pulling the string, the milk should fall onto the two boxes.
Step 7: Use!
Get a bowl and use the machine to push milk into your cereal.
