Ask Me Anything
This topic is for you community. The place to ask me anything.
Favorite project, best holiday, what motivates me, what time I wake up, if i know square-dancing, everything goes here.
Have a look through the older questions ones because I won’t answer the same twice.
Shoot your questions 🙂
Me and my friend and pro partner are in love with your machine ! In our Parisian atelier we are trying to build this amazing machine !
First of all, the shredder : we need to cut the steel elements but it is so expensive here in France ! (about 700e) we can not afford if
So my question is do you have a not so expensive contact for the laser cut ? Maybe in you country is not as expensive as in ours ? or any idea how to do it for the lover price ?
Thank you very for all you good tips and for the machine !!
@nonkonform Do you know rainbow gatherings? Do you like to have a clown nose?
@surya421999 Hey Dave! Do you have any video’s of using the compression machine? If so please share with me. 🙂
Working on more examples!
@valenbalcazar Hey Dave, Im planning to build the extrusion machine, but I couldn’t find the specifications of the motor (I know it has to be about 70 RPM but I need to know its power and torque), would you help me to choose the right one?
Sorry man, i’m not able to help out everyone individually. That’s why we have this online community, i’m sure that many people around here can help you out! Start your own topic and get going
@taivans Have you been to Mongolia? If not will you visit since I am starting the PP project here soon. #wishlist
Never been, its somewhere on the to-visit-list though, good luck!:)
hi Dave , i want to oppen my project in tunisa i need your contact plize
i need help anser me plize

@milk Do you have a section in the community for Documentation/Written-tutorials/stuff to read?
Not yet, currently we are more focussed on video. WOuld always be great to have additional option, but we simply haven’t got the manpower to organise that.
@patrickr When next your are in Africa or Asia ask of organic shampoo (no chemical additives). they are really good.
Not a questions but I appreciate the tip
@dtremmel Then I ask you: do you know another process for PET recycling instead of the heating one?
You can work with PET on a small scale, however its much easier to progress for the industry. Just to make life easier I would suggest to start of with another type of plastic. Also because if there would be any plastic recycling going on already on an industrial level, it would probably be PET. There is more work to be done on PE and PP.
@kishoregandhi So please help me out , I promise to be delegated at work .
Sorry man, i’m not able to help out everyone individually. It should be clear watching our videos, if you still have any questions feel free to post a topic in our forum.s Good luck! 🙂
Hi,Dave can we recyle plastic bags in these machines ?
You can. However they are not really made for that.
Hi Dave, on some caps I found the written PAT. It indicates some particular material? I found nothing about it
Hi Dave, are you still not using shampoo? 😀

Am Arthur from Uganda-Africa, i had an idea or suggestion.
Since you guys hv a lot of e-waste than Africa than u can produce the machines cheaply, how about you make a ready to assemble machine like a shredder parts machine than we can buy at a cheaper price at the sametime contributing to your mission.
Hi, I’m from Quito, Ecuador. I want to know if there is someone who can help me with a company that sells electric heating bands. thank you
What is better?
Following a principle and being known mostly for that or not imposing ideas but being more integrated into the standard?
Hi Donald – Thanks for the pointer.
I am new here and already finding the site a mine of information:-)
Sometime in the past our company started collecting bottle caps and unfortunately did not separate them into different types so we now have 4 bulk bags ( approx 3 tonnes) of mixed PP and HDPE tops.
Any suggestions/ideas of what we could do with them?
Hello, I want to build my own machines. Where can I get the guide or blueprints to start?
Hello Dave Hakkens, I am Gokma Sahat Tua Sinaga. I am from Tomsk State University in Russia. We – Internasional Science Program want to build your project in our University. We would be so pleased if we could get in touch with you through internet. We were wandering whether you still available to be invited and having a seminar in our University, in Siberia Russia. Let’s me know where we can contact you. [email protected]
I am Jigme (Jimmy) from Bhutan and I have joined recently in the army (PP) . I wanted to ask you what are the process and how much money I need to come to Netherlands. I want to undergo the basic training for machine making and assembling the machines part by part.
I don’t have any technical skills because I was doing my majors in B. A political science and sociology. I really want to start PP projects in Bhutan.
Just try harder… you’re not trying hard enough… I love how that’s the response (and nothing that addresses any of the details I mentioned, especially about the information era or job posting sites), just try harder on this thing you can never independently verify… it’s like me claiming you can achieve enlightenment if you just spend the next thirty years meditating outside a Buddhist temple, what? it hasn’t worked for you yet? try harder… keep digging until you find the crucified dwarf clan mummified in gold silk, what? haven’t found them yet? keep digging… keep applying until you find someone who will give you a job, what? you’ve sent out hundreds/thousands of applications? keep trying…
This is the information era and this economy is blatantly fake (millions of human vending machines in this country alone)… if you want to have a real conversation about the actual reasons why someone like me would have a hard time finding work, I’m all for it, but your comment is just not intellectually honest… Otherwise perhaps we can talk about ways to create work, do people never start projects with others on preciousplastic.com ?
@mugglebornnerdyvegan; thanks for joining the army of awkward but alive people 😉 dude, as ignorant this sounds but try harder getting at job and finance your activities; there is currently no real other way than having one feet in the monetary world (i’ve seen hundreds of projects); you, your family and fellows will be thankful. btw. this kinda text can get you banned even here 😉
Boet hier. Ik film…maar daarnaast run ik een jazz cafe in antwerpen. Daar wil ik graag nieuwe tafelbladen buiten van preciousplastic gaan maken. Mag ik een keer langs komen ?? Ik heb een aantal ideen voor de tafeltjes hier. En zou het eens willen bespreken om te zien wat er allemaal kan. DANK !
I was wondering where you got the 3mm, 5mm, 6mm parts laser cut?
Ready to build here!
May I get contacts of the organization which recently set up in Mozambique…need to benchmarking
We are trying to build a precious plastic on our campus, but I am struggling with how to get plastic out from the recycling system that already existed in our town. How can you get the material you want for reproduce?
