Brown, Christopher A.
The objective of this project is to design, manufacture, and test an open-ended powered wrench to accelerate and aid the process of installing alpine racing slalom poles into the snow for alpine race course sets. Easy to find and purchase manual gate wrenches are slow and tiresome to use. Our final designed, constructed, and tested device will be a motorized slalom gate wrench with forward, neutral, and reverse. It utilizes an open gear for horizontal engagement of the slalom pole rather than axial.
