Essential Tools for Shredder Project

26/04/2017 at 16:49

Hello All!

I have been following this movement for a couple months and am totally enamored with the ability to use my own recyclables to re-purpose and reuse. I’ve felt strongly about recycling since I was a little boy, so it’s a project that speaks to me in a way.

After watching the videos and seeing the estimated costs I realized the prices are for materials only, and does not include me buying the necessary machinery. My question for you guys is what are the essential tools/machines needed to complete the Shredder Project?

I am looking to save up money to buy the necessary tools, but would really appreciate the guidance in what is needed so I can begin to plan. Appreciate the guidance

You can go to craiglist and purchase tools through there. They are relatively cheap, sometimes people give them out for free. I would also recommend that over the summer you go to garage sales, and flea markets. Be as resourceful as you can, I dont have much money but I have been able to gather tools that usually cost in the hundreds for like 20 dollars or less
