Ice Cream Machine (now with details)

Postby flyawa » Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:09 pm

Just finished my latest cub project. It's an ice cream maker made of the gearbox from a automatic livestock feeder, an antique axle assembly, a homemade PTO shaft.

Prepped for paint and got primed today. Will get 2150 and an IH decal in a day or two.

Does the ice cream taste as good as what we've had from Kodiak's "Ice-Kreme Kub"? :D

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Hope so.

We're planning to have the first batch Saturday nite at my cousins place. The whole clan is getting together there.

I've done a fairly extensive test of all components and think it's ready to go.

Any recipe suggestions accepted

Good Morning:
What a great Idea,one of the flavors that I like is peanut butter,using your vanilla recipe just add about a half cup peanut butter per 1 1/2 gals container. A nieghbor made this many years ago and I have enjoyed it very much over the years.
I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !

Way to go :D You'll be the envy of any event you go to, and have a blast sharing with family and friends :!: Is this one on a regular cub ? Mine was made for my fasthitch cub. I took mine to a local church fundraiser and I don't know if I had more fun making Ice-cream or talking to the Old Timers that were interested in how it was made, either way I had a great time.
Take some video of it in action and let us know how it turns out...best of luck :{_}:

Ron, This is made to hitch to the front hole on a standard drawbar. The one that takes the eyebolt for the plow. That is where the PTO shaft lines up with the gearbox. The gearbox is a 30 to one reduction that makes a nice slow speed. I wanted to do it without belts etc.

Roy,
It came from the scrap pile at Wright-Patt (I have friends there :shock: ) its a 38.5 to 1 reduction box.

Dave,
Great, you have the frist one made for a standard hitch cub and I have the first fast-hitch version. I made some creme this evening for the inlaws and we all had a great time. It freezes in about 15 to 20 minutes even on a hot day like today (mid-90's)

Got it painted but still waiting for the IH decal to come in the mail.

Happy, the yellow lab, inspecting the progress after a quick swim in the pond. (Was nearly 100 degrees here today)

Its really looking sharp all painted up! The decal will be the finishing touch.

IF IT MAKES ICE CREAM AS GOOD AS RON'S YOU WILL DO OK. I TRAVEL ALL THE WAY TO GA FROM NY TO ENJOY RON'S.

That is WAY cool!

Could you post some detail as to how the gearbox is driven? Is that just a flywheel on the end, or is it a shaft-driven piece? My next project for Merlin will be to make a "Kodiak-Style" platform carrier for him, and then I would like to do something like this as a separate attachment that could be mounted to the platform carrier... That would be WAY cool...
