Ironknocker has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
BenChair

Hi i'm the new guy for Germany.
At first sorry for my bad english.

Last year in September, I started a new project.
It set a workstation to the CAD drawing, games and for benching

So i draw a 3d model of the Chair.






Then began the search for sponsors
My thanks goes to:

Aquatuning
Cooler Master
Eizo
Sandler

Eizo sent me 3 monitors




Cooler Master cases, power supplies, fan and Input Devices







and Aquatuning water cooling, electric, logic controllers and fans.



And Sandtler the seat.



Then the rebuilding began.
First, the monitor mount was my turn.













Next i build the frame.
1. the base




Then the backframe






Then the roll bar













The reserve tank I built from a stainless steel tube.







Next, a test build of the water cooling






The armrests were of course also motorized.




Then the trim was on the series

















The hardware then took his place














Now comes the current state of the project.
Last weekend I made ​​the armrests and the foldable desk.



























Here's are a couple of clips of the various functions.

Monitor mount
Roll bar
Mainbord Tray


The Worklog has more than 600 pictures.
All pictures until today there at.

we-mod-it.com

That's it for now. Next update next week

This is insane! I'm wondering how you will get this thing into your house, it's massive and looks extremely heavy too. Nice work, loving all the moving parts too.

I always love a good racing cockpit type project. Looks great. Kinda sad to see the holes covered as the structure looked very cool. But you are putting the hardware in it which makes up for that. Do keep us updated.

Very impressive and certainly a creative approach.

As pointed out by morgansk, moving it about might be a bit inconvenient but I bet you have a plan for that.

Do you have any long-term concerns over the weight of the monitors?

This is an amazing project, but do you not think the adjustment motors are a little slow?

If you've got to sit there and wait in excess of a minute before you can do anything else, I'd be a bit frustrated at its slowness. Especially if you need to move the screens up to get out of the chair and you needed to quickly get out and back in to grab something.

@morgans: The chair can be disassembled into 6 parts. Seat adjustment, base, rear, roll bar and monitor mount.
He will weigh about 200-300KG.

@trintragular: The monitor mount with monitors weigh 25 KG. Should not be a problem

@DeMoB: yes the engines are not the fastest but the have power. But I will later spindles with a different slope then take going the faster. For the lift motor I have unfortunately not found a better solution.

Has anyone got a better idea?

@ ali: werd mich bemühen hoffe du vermittelst wenn ich was nicht richtig oder falsch verstanden hab

Update.

First, I have cut the right armrest adjustment for the point where the table rests






Next, I drilled threaded into the holders of armrest adjustment.
Since a screw comes in with which I can make all in balance.






Finally, there was a few sheets for the limit switch adjustment




Then I done the seat frame finished with armrests. In addition I have welded all welds, ground and made ​​splashes away.
This Flex are used with serrated washer and milling cutter with tungsten cutter.
And that is it came out.











On the seat adjustment and the Mainboardtray I also weld sheets for the limit switches.








Recently, I then made ​​the motor mount ready which lift the
complete roll bar with the help of gas dampers.










The first parts are available only in my garage. Hope by the end of the month are all there:-D

BenChair Update 18.05.14

Update

So at the weekend I work on the lift engine.

With Felx shaft coupling it don't work, with the elastic it works much better.









The little engine creates have the power to lift the bar.
I have not made it out of the pivot point.

[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38jMb_ww0v4&feature=youtu.be[/video]

Der Motor wird dann Später von 2 Dämpfern unterstützt dann geht das viel leichter.

Then we went to the grind and weld.




















Here's a Before After comparing what I've done with all welds.




In the lower part, I have welded dying and screwed adjustment screws.






Now he has already found his future place.

BenChair [Update 25.05.14]

Today I have work on the monitoring and control unit

First I canted angle and mark the cutout.










Next, I attached the hinges because the displays can be folded down later.












Then I divided the sheet again so it is not to big and does not protrude into the monitors.




When done what I have made ​​the handles for the detent adjustment of the displays.





As a Break point I welded a brace with a guide at the temple.





So what it looks like now.

Windscreen wiper motors are quite powerful with good torque, 12 volt


motorcycle starter motors are powerful, 12 volt
