Garage Door Opener | DIY

Garage Door Opener | DIY

this is a modification done to my garage door as the door is quite heavy to open and close, so i hacked it and motorized it with old 2hp single phase ac motor and a reduction gear box which i got from the scrapyard.

i was planing to add a remote to open and close the door but got busy to the end of this project but i will do that soon.

this project was inspired by ” make it extreme ” channel.

this project took 4 days in total to complete where 2 days was just for wiring as the motor used was a 4 pole single phase motor and there wasn’t any info on the internet, so it took some time to figure it out.

if anyone have any question leave a comment.

Use safety protection while welding. i am MakerMan thats why sometime i dont wear safety protections 😉 .

I found your channel yesterday and I have binge watched you since then. I've commented a few times and you probably are tired of hearing it but I am in awe of your skills. You are a genius in my opinion!. I hope you get millions of subscribers but also hope you do not change. You are teaching an old man a lot and I again thank you. I will try not to say any more but I am in awe sir!

Richard Hybels says:

Very clever. Mig welding with open shoes and no socks? I can't even get away with running shoes or I get a " hot foot.."
