Cool Ice Cream Maker Ideas?

I would like to make a homemade ice cream maker for my International or Hercules to pull but something different. I saw a Maytag washing machine at the Apple Festival making ice cream but didn't check it closer. Any ideas? Thanks.

Default Re: Ice Cream Maker Ideas?

Here is a quick diagram I made for you.

The way I attached the pulley to the crank handle was easy on the crank that I have.

I unscrewed the handle from the shaft and screwed on an allthread nut. The kind that you use to connect 2 pieces of allthread together. Basickely it is a nut that is about an inch high.

I then found a pulley the right diameter that had a hole slightly smaller than the points on the allthread nut. I turned the points on the nut down untill the pulley was a tight fit. If you don't have a lathe you could use a file.

Then I set the screw and screwed in a short piece of allthread long enough to screw the handle back on so that I could check the firmness of the Icecream as it freezes.

Hi Keith,
My wife and I put together an ice cream freezer contraption that we use several times a year as waistlines and guilt permit.

Exclamation Re: Ice Cream Maker Ideas?

The oversize nut Dick was refering to is called a ROD COUPLING. They come in either standard or extra heavy configurations. For 3/8 - 16 size, measuerd by the wrench size, they will be either 1/2" for the std, or 5/8" for the XH. I have seen rod couplings for as small as 1.4 - 20, up to 2"
