Interlux Waterfront Challenge "CRUSHED"

Well not exactly, what was crushed was an oil filter. First try with the Sea Scout designed prototype crusher was a success.

The close up shows the mechanism used to convert the linear motion of the piston into a rotary motion. A good description of the mechanics can be found here.

Here is John Henry cranking and crushing and easily destroying the filter in about 30 seconds. Sorry for the orientation will try to correct it shortly.

As you can see the filter was crushed and even the paper filter was squeezed.

The next steps are to add gussets and then look for used oil filter to crush.
