I note after a bit of an absence that the current Precious Plastic members on the map are different from the ones listed before. So, I’m wondering how to get in touch with those who have left the community, to see if they have machines to sell. I’ve contacted those close to me in Seoul, but in two weeks.. no replies. 🙁
I have had the same discussion for years!!! But I think more and more people are making molds, so I hope the prices get down, so the complexity. In Mexico we are looking for alternatives, for example we use the inyection machine to melt the plastic and the use a press https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0LP8aTaj_0&t=92s

@ paforeau, we make such moulds with heaters & temperature Control.
In case extrusion screws run out of stock in the bazar or unavailable in your country, I found a supplier who provides extrusion screws, barrels and other accessories.
They both have 588mm and 790mm sizes.
Here the links :

Why not use composting to clean plastics? The microbes in the composting process should eat everything but the plastic giving a relatively clean plastic output. It seems a lot easier, and cheaper, then other methods I’ve heard. Maybe one of those tumbler composts would be good for this. Anyways something to think about.
