@xxxolivierxxx Do you think I can improve it by using A4-80 steel screws and add something under the side blades to hold it up?

This is my injection machine, the frame is made from extruded aluminium, it is strong and lightweight, I am finishing it with a 3d printed hopper.

Looks very pretty!

 

I like the use of a bearing between the arm and push-rod, there’s a lot of force on all the pivot points and this will reduce wear, especially with aluminium. But that little bolt it’s connected to looks like it will just bend backwards, have you tested this?
