BUILDING THE SCISSORS JACKPage: 1 of 5
06 November 2004:
I began by manufacturing the hydraulic cylinder and piston. The cylinder body is from styrene tubing and sheet; the piston rod is from steel, joined by screw thread at one end with plastic piston.
01 May 2005:
The part with holes is the rearmost member of the chassis, the holes being for the rear lamps.
04 May 2005:I soldered the chassis longitudinal and cross members by fixing within a frame vise.
06 May 2005:The basic construction of the chassis is done.
07 May 2005:Returning to the hydraulic cylinder, I cut the end plate from styrene sheet and glued it at one end of the cylinder. I drilled the holes for passing pins to imitate bolts.
The ends of the pins are cut.
used wheels from Lancia Delta Rally kit as the basis for manufacturing
the traction wheels. I also used resin-cast tire halves.
