I am building a shredder and now I just have to attach the motor and start shredding plastic … I hope.
I found an electric motor from a washing machine and I want to make sure that it will work.
So, can anybody help me with some questions?
What’s the minimum torque? I will recycle mostly ABS but is preferable to be able to shred other plastics. I am using the same blade configuration as Dave.
Is there any recommended maximum speed? Dave used 70 rpm but I have seen some projects using 200 rpm.
I will study the influence of the flakes dimension on the mechanical properties of the material. Do you have any suggestion of 5 different maximum dimensions to study?
Thank you so much for everything! I have made some change in the shredding chamber and I will share it when finished. Hope that it can help someone.
