My shredder construction log

30/05/2016 at 03:09

Hi,

Just thought I would make a thread of my shredder construction.

After a weekend of fiddling, I managed to get the machine to an assembled state (please ignore the welding quality, I have just started to teach myself how to weld).

I will be spending this week/weekend tuning it so that it rotates smoothly.

Simon

Has anyone tried a “treadle” configuration like was used on an old stone grinding wheel?  Once you get the stone in motion, keeping it going requires pumping the pedal, but could allow a configuration where the shredder operator is also powering it.  (Something similar to a “Stairmaster” would seem like it could also work, but the mechanism for driving it with two independent chains is a bit more complex.)
