3 At-Home Projects for the Mechanically Minded Man
With the amount of time everyone has been spending at home and indoors lately, you may be looking for some fun projects to work out the mechanically driven side of your brain. Check out these fun projects to get your brain going and leave you with some cool gadgets to show off to your friends.
1. Rebuild a Vintage Truck
If you’ve been dying for a new long-term project, think about rebuilding a truck. Putting together a truck is basically a giant puzzle that gives you the opportunity to really dig into the knowledge behind mechanics. You can find used truck body parts online to help you create the vintage vehicle of your dreams. Once you have your finished product, you’ll have a cool new toy to take out fishing, camping or just cruising around the neighborhood.
2. Invest in a Moped
Mopeds are a fun two-wheel vehicle that can be made road-safe or just be used to ride around in dirt areas. However, they generally take quite a bit of fidgeting to get them to run just right. That means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to mess around with all the mechanical parts of your new moped and really fine-tune its operation. A nice perk is that they take very little fuel to get you where you want to go.
3. Learn How To Brew Your Own Brew
Building an at-home beer brewing kit can be a lot of fun, give you a bit of a challenge, and leave you with a great product to show off at your next barbeque. There are various different aspects that go into brewing that will let you flex your mechanical muscles, such as building the equipment for brewing, getting the details right for moving beer into containers and later serving and storing your brews.
