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 🙂

Aidé moi a démarrer!
Could you share your experience on toxic matters? Is there a potential risk to deal with toxic gases while melting plastic?

Go to the bazaar site or make your own according to the drawings!
Hi Dave, that’s what happened, thank you! I will show on YouTube, Pavel K.
you can help me. where can I get laser cut groups in Indonesia or at the bazaar.
My location is Indonesia Surabaya East Java 60239 postal and 081234512003 my phone
I have a small farm in Colombia, South America. I would like to buy the machinary to built a small reclycling system to deal with our own plastic waste. Where can I get it?
estoy en el proceso de construcción de la maquina trituradora, pero presento una serie de inquietudes en cuanto a las cuchillas de la maquina:
1. en que tipo de material se fabrican las cuchillas de trituracion para que sean de buena resistencia?
2. aquí solo se consigue laminas de 4,5mm y 6mm no se consiguen de 5mm que podría hacer en ese caso?
espero me puedan colaborar con estas inquietudes
Can you share my Precious Plastic video?
I posted it elsewhere in the forums but no one saw it.
I was wondering if you could use a volunteer (me :D) to help you out once in a while?
In my daily life I work as a project manager at a branding agency for meaningful brands. I live literally 5 minutes away from your work space and I am eager to help you out in my free time and learn everything about your projects and the inspiring people of your community.
As a project manager I am a real ‘organized sapien’ so perhaps I can help you (and in particular your ‘organized sapien’) with planning and organizing. I used to work as a lawyer (long story), so perhaps I can also help out with legal issues. Are there opportunities to contribute as a volunteer (in addition to my full-time job)?
Hope to hear from you,
how calculation the mechanical part and thermal part in injection machine
thank you 🙂
I use Wix to build community web sites. I find it more flexible and innovative than WordPress. Better templates too
I am from Kosovo (new partly recognized Country between Serbia and Albania) and want to know how to get funded. I already wrote to some Organisations, one offered to give me Plastic, but not the funds for the machines. At least that is something! All I tried were local Organisations, so I was wondering if there are International Investors that can help me. I might not get the container for now, as I can use the space inside an old Factory that doesn’t work anymore since after the War. So I estimate I would need 5 000 Euros to complete the whole thing without the Container. But 1 000 Euros would get me started!
My personal question to you is, do you think Veganism is the more efficient way of recourse allocation when it comes to food? I think Vegans can have a smaller footprint. This is why I used to be vegan for three years. Have you ever tried to be Vegan? Please don’t take this question as a offense, I am just asking. I don’t judge people, I only want to see things from a scientific point of view.
I’m trying to start my idea of making necklaces with recycled plastic. Do you have an idea of how to make the beads for the necklaces in an easy and large way?
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?
May I get contacts of the organization which recently set up in Mozambique…need to benchmarking
Marius Jerling from Mauritius here. I am new. I arrived in Mauritius 6 months ago and I am working as an environmental management educator. Mauritius is in trouble. As a school we want to not just recycle but actually make new durable products with the plastic. I have seen the units that are made to shred and extrude, are they available as a whole unit or do we have to build it? I need help to get this started as soon as possible as this beautiful island nations will loose it’s appeal. Fly-tipping is rampant. We can create jobs and clean the island. I am interested in the processes as well as the prices of the equipment. I have manpower and funding. We need to act very soon. I hope you can help me or point me in the right direction. Much appreciated
I was wondering where you got the 3mm, 5mm, 6mm parts laser cut?
Ready to build 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 want to create 3mm plastic sheets to make jewerly. Can I cut these sheets with a laser cut machine?
Hi, Dave i was thinking about your idea of conteiners work.
whether you have been wondering about installing photovoltaic panels to become independent of the electricity supplier and at the same time make independent production points out of the containers.I think for myself how to put equipment in a van – I have to be mobile because of my clients and I will also install photovoltaic panels here.I think it’s a good idea to reduce environmental pollution.
First of all, I want to say big thank you for this project. It’s really brilliant idea to share with others this information and I want to continue doing it!
My plan is making compost bins from recycling plastic.
It’s just my thought and my ideas. I don’t really now is it possible or not. That’s why I want to ask your opinion. How do you think machine for the big bins( 15-19 liters) can be prepared using this method( with oven and pressure)
Thank you in advance for your answer!
Have a great day!
I must say I am extremely upset…
(Listening to this on loop while I type https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHP-bpI7Ouw)
I have discussions on Facebook and people just insist on the solution is banning plastic… I want to turn everybody into plastic smiths… They do not comprehend, if you just spend a week collecting and scanning and take moments to think it through as to where to scan next… learn it… I am extremely poor (I have at most $10 in my bank account and have rarely had anything at all, a while since it’s been over $50)… I could not find a job (you would think it should be extremely easy in this information era but I can explain the actual technical details and why it would be more possible for someone with money than someone without, despite it being purely artificial *aka software and hardware*)… my info I give people around town and online with the job posting sites or just directly… goo.gl/QxentU
Anyways, I’m sure my failure to find work has been because of all of my other policies (I’ve always assumed most people here have plenty of cash), not just because I think the Zeitgeist went out of their way to make recycling as boring as possible when they could have had your plastic smith containers everywhere… It’s a population of people who have all just opted out of recycling being this totally other thing… like the ability to make things has been removed from their subroutine protocols or something… smiths of other materials like carpenters probably agree on some level…
I bet I could do it, but then there are all these other projects I could spend that money on… if you found this post a giant joke, well, I guess I’ll laugh with you, but if anybody ever wants to actually do that… well why not?
@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 😉
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 ?
