Hi, i’m planning to build/buy an extruder. What electronic components etc is “must buy” and which can i make on my own? I live on a farm so we have a lot of equipment and materials. Want the cheapest possible.

Kind regards Mathias

The heater bands and controller/SSR/TC part of the system is probably a must buy, though you may have some heater equivalents. They are relatively cheap.

If you have a way to provide a low speed/high torque drive with your current equipment that is safe to operate, you may be able to save that part. If you search the forum, there are a lot of discussions on speed/torque/couplings.
