You can cut a perfectly round rubber gasket of any size or a belt for the tape drive mechanism of a tape recorder from a sheet of rubber using this simple device. In addition, it can be used to cut large diameter holes in plywood, plastic, plexiglass, cardboard and other similar materials.

Making it yourself is quite easy. From a sheet of plywood 10 mm thick, cut out three squares measuring 300x300 mm. Drill a hole d 8 mm in the center of one of them, and d 25 mm in the other two. By gluing the blanks, as shown in the drawing, we get the base of the fixture. In its central hole, fasten the M8 bolt with a nut.

Turn the central post from a brass bar d 12 mm and 80 mm long. Cut an external M12 thread at one end, and an M8 internal thread at the end hole on the other side.

The rotary sleeve has an axial hole d 12 mm and a threaded M10 perpendicular to it.

The carrier is a brass bar d 10 mm. At one end, a M10 thread 10 mm long is cut, and a radial hole M3 at the other end is made after reassembling the carrier with a rotary sleeve: it must be parallel to its hole d 12 mm.

The slider in the form of a corner is cut out of a duralumin bar. In its vertical wall, two holes d 10 mm are made - one under the carrier, the second, perpendicular to it and shifted down by 5 mm, - for the latch - a threaded pin with a semicircular groove. A groove with a section of 14x3 mm is sawn in the horizontal wall - under the knife. The material for its manufacture is a fragment of a hacksaw blade. In the vertical groove of the slider, the knife is fixed with a Mb screw.

The pressure plate is cut on a lathe from a metal plate 2 mm thick or a thicker sheet of plastic. Its central hole should have d 8 mm, and the outer diameter should be slightly less than the cut one.

The lock nut of the sleeve with M12 central thread has an outer diameter of 0 25 mm and a height of 15 mm. Saw a half-diameter transverse groove in it and make a longitudinal hole in this part. Then cut the M4 thread in its lower half, and drill out to d 5 mm in the upper half. Now tighten the halves of the nut with a screw, this way you can lock it in any position on the B-pillar.

Round cutter-universal
Device for cutting large diameter holes (click to enlarge): 1 - handle, 2 - carrier, 3 - M6 screw, 4 - slider, 5 - knife, 6 - center post, 7 - lock nut, 8 - swivel sleeve, 9 - spring, 10 - M8 bolt, 11 - pressure plate, 12 - workpiece, 13 - base, 14 - threaded pin-clamp

The order of assembly of the device is as follows. Screw the carrier with a threaded shank into the swivel sleeve until it stops. Insert the locking pin into the slider so that its cylindrical recess coincides with the longitudinal hole. Putting the slider on the carrier, insert a knife into its groove and tighten with a screw. Attach a rotating handle to the end of the carrier.

A workpiece is put on the bolt rod protruding from the base. A pressure plate is installed on it, and then a central rack. You can tighten the thread with a wrench - a radial hole d 5 mm is intended for this. A spring is put on the rack, followed by a carrier assembly and, finally, a lock nut.

Having adjusted the position of the slider on the carrier and the bushings on the rack (in height), you can get to work.

The dimensions of the main parts allow you to cut holes with a diameter of up to 240 mm on this fixture, however, if you need a larger size, it is enough to replace only three elements: carrier, base and pressure plate. And for quick adjustment of the device to a given size, vernier risks can be applied to the carrier.

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

Class D amplifier with 240W output power and 0,1% distortion 14.03.2006

Texas Instruments and the Technical University of Denmark have developed a Class-D (Class-D) amplifier with 240W output power and less than I/O distortion.

A TI spokesman said that "this is the best known product of its kind, and the output power level is unprecedented for monolithic output stages." To achieve low THD, an open-loop feedback was used, which is preferable to closed-loop, which cannot easily be added to an all-digital signal path.

The amplifier is built on n-channel horizontal (lateral) DMOS transistors, which are used both in the output stages and in the pre-amp stages. Distortions initially affect the timing and electrical characteristics of the prestages. Reduced distortion is achieved by optimizing the size of the transistors of the preliminary and output stages.

The amplifier is manufactured using a 0,4 µm/1,8 µm high voltage BiCMOS process with two aluminum plating layers and one copper layer.

Each half-bridge uses three pins for VDD ground and output, each of which is connected to the crystal by a stranded wire. Two half-bridges are placed on the chip, each of which provides an output current of up to +18 A and a power of up to 244 W at a load of 4 ohms in bridge mode.
