Semester projects are getting close to completion. Senior Eli, who finished his Seven Segment Display Clock, has decided to work in the machine shop to create a mechanical nut cracker. His design will utilize a circular aluminum frame with a threaded rod inserted at the top. Twisting the threaded rod will tighten it against a nut positioned inside the circular frame. Apply some more twisting force and the nut should crack. Check out the videos below of Eli working on his project.
And check out the plasma cutter making some noise!
