Hi guys I found this Video showing how you can make your own simple hydraulic machine. This simple Hydraulic arm is powered using a simple syringe hydraulic system. Awesome! This DIY machine was made by a guy called Mist8k
Step One: Pin a thin lid to the O table coaster. For the rotating base of the arm, a tin lid is used. A hole is drilled at the center of this thin lid. The lid is then pinned into place using a drawing pin. A perler bead is used as a spacer to allow free movement of the lid.
Step 2: Making the arm: To make the actual arm, two large lolly sticks and four standardized sticks are used. To give the sticks a mechanical look, pain them with a color of your choice. In this case, they were pained gray.
Step 5: Making the Hydraulics. For the hydraulics, you will need six 1 ml syringes. Assembling the first hydraulic. Glue a perler bead to the handle and then glue a plastic cable tie to the top end of the tube
