This is an adapter to let you drive a Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker with a standard 3/8 drill socket adapter (and a strong drill).

I ordered a Kitchen Aid stand mixer and its Ice Cream maker attachment.

The ice cream maker arrived yesterday, the stand mixer arrives on Thursday. I want ice cream now.

This is my solution :)


1) Get a strong drill.
2) Insert the drill adapter that converts the drill to a standard 3/8" socket.
3) Print this part
4) Insert the long hex rod into the hexagonal hole of this part
5) Insert the other end of the hex rod into the 3/8" drill adapter
6) Use the drill to power the Ice Cream maker

I busted out laughing when I read the description! I have had this same ice cream maker for about 7 years, and love it.

@sean - Didn't even know there was private messaging here :) Sent you a mail.

Very cool. Kind of the opposite of these other projects where we have the KitchenAid stand mixer and we want to make custom attachments to other devices.


The only thing protecting anything that requires custom drill bits now are our own laziness.

I hadn't thought about how easy it is to make this sort of thing before.

Hmm, not sure if the plastic would be suitable to make custom drill bits out of, unless you're drilling into butter or cheese :) But adapters and other rotary-driven bits and pieces - totally fair game :)

there is always a solution when you have a printer ^^

Productive impatience! :-)
