Can you use a leaf shredder as a plastic shredder? Making one isn’t an option where I live, there is no equipment available to make it. Or does a small wood shredder work?

I tried one of these shredders with rigid plastic containers and thick plastic bags, and had very little success! I think the blade spins too quickly and perpendicular to the material being fed in, so the plastic just bounces off and occasionally makes a tiny chip.

I also tried a paper shredder which appears to have a similar mechanism to PPs shredders. Also no good!

You might have a different style of shredder and have more success though! Good luck.

Hi @renindigo

I try this at this moment with a Makita shredder. Small plastique like bottle cap or CD case is ok. i will post a video at the end of this week.

You can check the post An extruder with mini shredder.

Cheers
