Welcome to BaumBuilds.com. My name is Al Baum. I am an inventor and mechanical engineer. This website is intended to share my inventions and interests with others. My niche is designing and building vehicles, then making build plans that fully document my designs so that others can duplicate them. Most vehicles are specifically designed to be built without expensive machine shop tools. Although a lathe and milling machine would be useful, my designs don’t require this equipment in order to be fabricated. A lot of work goes into the production of the build plans, yet I offer them at a reasonable price.
This website highlights my vehicle designs. My vehicle line-up is 5 strong and growing, with more designs in the works.
Most of my inventions are fun, and unconventional! Along with the design and construction of my vehicles, I like to create a demonstration video to feature each vehicle or invention. In addition to the videos, more recently I have been creating a brand for each vehicle, complete with a logo just for the fun of it. See all of my inventions under the "Inventions" page. Each invention will contain general information, photos, and a link to the demonstration video.
Me and my inventions have appeared on the History Channel's auction show "Sold!", and on Insight TV's series "Power & Tech", which can be viewed here:
Join us at the Orlando Maker Faire, November 10th & 11th at the Central Florida Expo Center & Fairgrounds, in Orlando. We will have a booth with the Magic Carpet, The Baum Dicycle, The MAV Tracked Electric Wheelchair, the Voltraxx, and the debut of our very latest design, The BDT, the Bolt-Together Drift Trike!
