Aireless Tires wheels

Non-pneumatic heavy machinery Tweel wheels

This is one of those topics that I like even if it is not a DIY. It is not topical, since it has been talking about this type of airless wheels or non-pneumatic wheels for a few years, I think since 2002 approximately.

If you have never seen a wheel of this style it will impact you especially when you watch some videos and discover what they are capable of withstanding. I leave one for you to enter into matter. It’s from Michelin Tweel wheels.

How to start a beehive into a glass jar

ho to build a beehive

We have already seen how to make a DIY beehive and now I leave a modification or extension that we can make to a hive as a curiosity. The idea is to get a honeycomb in a jar or glass bell.

It is a very interesting science activity to show children. Although I have seen this product for sale, here I present it in a didactic way as a way to teach children and adults the ins and outs of hives.

How to make

I collect this information because the original page where it was published and that it linked no longer has the article.

The technique is very simple although we need to have a hive, of course.

Place a bell, with strips of the hive so that the bees begin their work.

If you are a father, you will use wet baby wipes and it is one of those things that from the tests you know that you will continue to use them forever.

PCL or polycaprolactone (Plastimake, InstaMorph, Friendly Plastic)

If this is the first time you hear this name, you are in luck because today you will be surprised. The PCL is a thermoplastic plastic that we can mold with our hands when heated around 60 ° C and that hardens in the cold and we can repeat the process again and again, hundreds of times.

Plastimake, instamorph and friendly plastic

When it cools it becomes hard and tough, it does not conduct electricity or heat, it is not toxic and it is biodegradable. It seems the perfect solution for our inventions does not?

It reminds me of Sugru, but being able to reuse it and it seems to be more difficult to manipulate. Although of course being able to reuse it again and again is a very important point.

Look how the magic happens …

Oscar Perone, sent us this tutorial about how to built homemade beehives some years ago, to publish it in the spanish web. I reproduce it literally. Enjoy it!

The beehive I propose

It is possible to do beekeeping without knowing anything about it, manufacturing our own material with waste wood and populating our cheap hives with swarms that we will capture for free. The result will be an automatic beehive that will only open to harvest.

In addition to the abrasive agents that we have listed, the saline solution of the ocean also helps the crystal dissolve over the years and gives it that glazed, frosty or sugary hue.
