Sweet! I assume you have something in mind for rotation?  I want to say that I read that the movement of the fork on a Santos mixer actually causes the bow to rotate. Do you think that might be applicable here? As I think about it, the arms go together and probably wouldn't create a consistent rotation.... but you never know.

Thank you.  I am on the high road because you are driving, I just put gas in the car  :-D.  I appreciate the help you have given, again.

I think that it would work if the kneading arm (closest to the bowl) was a bit off center and could pull the bowl around in a circle.  This one is modeled after a French made version.  Very rare, Very old, good stuff. :)

Thank you Tman1, Mick, Chau and Norma.

I finished the kneading arm's foot yesterday.  I will make the other foot today.  Hopefully with the weather expectected to come on-shore this afternoon I can catch a break and use this thing soon. :D

Whew.. I was concerned this might be getting back-burnered by another project.  =]

  Good to hear about progress!   :chef:

Are you envisioning this as the tough part or the next steps?

I don't know.  It all seems kinda silly when you look at it from a distance, right ?

I totally admit that i am over budget.  I picked up a stainless steel bowl from the restaurant store.  18 inch, +/- 16 quart capacity blah, blah, blah.

The feet of the diving arms touch the sides of bowl every so slightly, then continue their motion with a 1/4" gap.  1/4" is about 3 and one half toothpicks width.  That is in comparison to the one toothpick gap on the Artofex Diving Arm mixer that I enjoy as a foundation for this build.  We shall see if the ship still sails....

Oh yeah! I will get another detail video and shots  of the one I use next time I use it. I must say it makes some of the best dough I have ever put my hands on, so gentle with it and does not heat it up at all? Well worth my trip there to make it? I only hope your build can do the same for you!

I found the last piece of the puzzle for the bowl drive.  A zero cost to me right angle drive.  The donor Dewalt angle grinder will work perfectly.  The ratio 4:1 is not perfect, but at this price I won't complain.

The bowl drive is done.  Just need to extend the shaft where that sprocket is sitting.  A chain will run up to one of the shafts that turn the arms.

i get the feeling that using an a/c motor to drive the bowl instead of a variable ac/dc motor (that of a treadmill) is going to give you speeds far greater than what you could ever use

I don't think he's using the actual Dewalt motor, just the drive train thru the angle grinder, which of course, includes the main shaft thru the motor.

the reduced speed on those right angle drivers is pretty high, looking at 2100rpm right off the head(or so) iirc
