A hand-picking combine harvester

At the end of August, it is time to pick the cowberries. In the woods, lovers of berries, and gatherers for sale, will also be present. In order not to linger in the taiga for longer than necessary and not to feed the mosquitoes, a combine harvester will help you. To make one yourself, with their own hands, will not be difficult. And again, some kind of savings - in the store a similar combine is not cheap. In order not to rush about in search of the necessary thing, when it is needed, I suggest preparing it in advance. Let it lie - it is better to have and not to need, than to need and not to have! It will take a little time to make this tool.

It will take

  • Galvanized steel.
  • Marker.
  • Flux and tin for soldering.
  • Steel wire with a cross section of two millimeters (you can use bicycle spokes).
  • Aluminum wire with a cross section of five millimeters for rivets.
  • Scissors for metal.
  • Hammer.
  • Thick fabric.
  • Aluminum tube (from the ski pole).

To begin with, we will cut two bands from galvanizing: three by fifteen cm.Bend them in turn exactly in half, along the entire length. From each end, with one of the sides, cut two cm of one of the layers.
