Greeting from CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
Are there any makers in or around the area who want to get something going plastic or otherwise??
I just joined the site and live in LaGrange. I am amazed at the amount of plastic disposed of and not reused. I understand not all plastics can be reused and mixed plastics cause problems, but there are a lot of plastics that are just thrown away in landfills. I downloaded the precious plastics kit and I am looking into building the shredder and weld up some forms to create new products. What are you thinking of getting started with plastics?
I was hoping to build a shredder. But I couldn’t get around laser cutting parts. Or finding a simpler way to broach hexs for the blades. You have the resources to build a shredder?
I am looking at the shredder plans and everything else now. I’m looking through my contacts for someone to laser cut. My son and his friend are welders so the rest of the parts can be made. It seems that someone should have a kit to buy with all the parts and just assemble it.
There are “kits” available currently via the community bazaar…stateside in the $700 ballpark
Thanks, I was reading through some threads and it seems about $400 for the cutters is but still need the motor, stand, and electronics. Are there complete kits to assemble in Ikea fashion for $700?
You can check out what they have posted in the bazar..I haven’t looked in a few
