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 🙂
Monthly News #5, 4’30”, I like these blue plastic fish! Do they have a use or are they just decorative? Is there a CAD file for them?
Hi Dave, This may have been asked but unable to locate…..Will you be looking at designing rotational moulding machines sometime in the future to add to your existing compliment?.
Would add plastic tubing or piping to possible output and a multi tilt rotational moulding machine would make small 3d hollow plastic creations quite easily with gas being the main heating source.
@fxdennypradana Do you feel interested in paper waste recycling?
I’m interested in every type of recycling! However I need to keep focus, otherwise I get nothing done.
@leesam007If I can get the plastic to a similar size and density as the shredder produces, then theoretically I wouldn’t even need a shredder…right?
How would you do that without shredder?
@smhdsn Just wondering how you found your time at DAE?
Loved it! Intens but fun!
@jegor-m In one of your videos there were bouldering stones attached to the wall in the workshop I guess. Tell us about that
Yep all plastic with aluminum casted moulds. Video coming 🙂
@madwolf28 Hey Dave just wondering if you were going to take an visit to USA anytime soon if so you should stop by and visit I’m in Oregon.
Not i the planning, but that could change soon!
Hey Dave just wondering if you were going to take an visit to USA anytime soon if so you should stop by and visit I’m in Oregon.
Just wondering how you found your time at DAE?
I went to the open day there a few weeks ago and it seemed amazing! Also do you have any tips for the application procedure?
Thanks for being a great inspiration!
Hello from Los Angeles! I think your machine tutorials are amazing. Unfortunately I’m not very skilled in the construction aspect of “Precious Plastic”.
Here’s my question: If I can get the plastic to a similar size and density as the shredder produces, then theoretically I wouldn’t even need a shredder…right?
Dave, I always admiring your works!
One question I want to ask you. Do you feel interested in paper waste recycling?
If you do, I will feel very excited if I can help you to brainstorm the idea.
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.
Que tal Dave???, i have a question, what is the production capacity of each of the machines and has achieved some improvement in the productivity of these in V3.0
@mirly, it’s basically an outdated & abandoned version of WordPress & Buddypress ( community/forum part) and a bunch of plugins. I can recommend same but please updated all – if you use the WordPress ‘Enfold’ theme from ‘Envato’ and a bunch of other recommended WordPress plugins you will be more than fine, in many aspects. I occasionally clone precious-plastic.org for some users. let me know via private message. Authoring and social integration is a piece of cake, just as many other things : instagram integration, analytics, real-time user session recording …name it. I can imagine to migrate the v3/v4 themes into that clone,..
I’m busy to creating my own community online for my project TOOBUS.
I was wondering how you designed your website/ community part.
U used software; HTML…?
I tried it before with software but didn’t reached further than them ugly designed pages. We already builded the biggest part of our website so this is the last one.

Hello, I am new to your forum as of today.. I am from Alberta, Canada. I am really happy to be a member of this forum. thanks.
Dear Mr dave, I recently tried to download the machines design on the precious plastic website but to no avail, I have also signed up to the website, cause I felt it would be a requirement to download the zip file and yet nothing, please I would truly appreciate, if this can be looked into .
Hi Dave, what if I want to buy a shredder machine from you? I ma based in Zambia.
Hello Dave I would like to launch the project in GABON, just waiting for you.
@mugglebornnerdyvegan, despite this thread is since long abandoned, please open another thread, thanks.
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 😉
hey @david5565 i am a mechanical engineer from India and making plastic recycling machines for my final year project.first i thought of making precious plastic shredder but the laser cutting was costly and we are tight on budget so i took inspiration from a plastic granulator. all of my parts are cut by gas cutting and are welded together.finishing was done by a shaper and grinder machine. you can follow us on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/preciousplastic.india/
hope this helps.
Greetings from India.
why was this particular revolving muti-teardrop design chosen for the shredder?
I have struggled to produce the parts and they are relatively hard without the laser cutters who happen to be few and costly here in Nigeria.
Has anyone tried cutting the parts with an oxy-gas torch? How did it go?
I want a heads up before i try.
I can’t seem to pin myself. I’ve gone through the process 3 times and each time it records my introduction sentences but the pin isn’t placed. Any advice on how to get myself on the map for the precious plastics site would be much appreciated!
Dave, Nice work!! If i wanted to build a shop, what should i budget for getting the machines cut out? How many hours and how much in steel…
Hi!I have been following a few of your videos trying to take some inspiration.I noticed in this particular video you are wrapping the plastic around a metal mould and you easily remove the plastic from it.When I try to wrap the plastic around metal moulds, as it cools down it squeezes against the mould and it becomes really challenging to remove it without damaging the piece.Do you have any suggestions as to how to get the finished product out of it’s mould easily?
Hola, hay algún proyecto de vehículos modulares, así como el teléfono? y si lo hay , donde puedo anotarme para ingresar?
Hey man – you’ve got a spammer in the project idea form. Might want to check that out.
