[USA]Company Making Shredder parts updated DEC2018
The company that is working with me to get the shredder parts is called “BBC Steel” and they are located in Oregon.
New Prices as of April 2018: ( so far the lowest in USA)
– 1 set: $400.00
– 2 to 9 sets: $275.00 per set, (really good price)
– 10 or more: $265.00 per set
– Shaft (perfect fit to their sets) $38
– Both Bearings $32
****Shipping is not included – You will have to pay for shipping****
Important: This modifications were necessary for most accessible parts also to keep the prices low.
Blades were modified to fit the 1″ shaft (this set will fit perfect if you buy their shaft and bearings)
Shaft is 1″ with ends machined to 3/4
Bearings are 3/4
You can email Randy Including your name and state you would like to order the shredder parts, keep in mind the prices may be going up due to the material going up in price. BBCSTEEL is one of the few companies that is wiling to work at small scale (one set at the time) Not all companies are willing to work this way since we can’t order in bulk (100s at the time)
Again, We can not afford to lose this company so email with discretion and be polite, this would be ideal for people who require receipts and invoices (If for business, School districts, Non Profit)
Any question don’t hesitate to message me.
I invite everyone to join “Precious Plastic USA” group on Facebook
***If you have a better option of better deal please let us know as we always look for better ways to bring cheaper and more accessible options for the community****
Just for clarification. This is for a complete plastic shredder unit, minus motor, for $1,050 for one, or $850 per unit in groups of ten? And an additional $150-200 for shipping and handling?
1 set- $650
2 sets- $550 each
10 sets- $375 each
I still have to confirm with Chris on sizes. Also, I am in for the group buy and I am willing to make this happen I just have to coordinate with Chris.
Here in Oregon, I got the parts for my shredder laser cut in Stainless Steel for $317. It would have been cheaper if I had bought 5 sets. The guy quoted me for 1 set and 5 sets. If I had ordered 5 sets at time, it would have been about $193 per set.
Attached is the orignal quote. They guy did it in kind of a confusing way, so I parsed the info into spreadsheet, which you can check out here.
Also included a pic of the working shredder! If this is the best price folks have found, I’d be happy to coordinate a group buy.
@davehakkens Thank you Sir!
@samsmith (Sam) and I will be coordinating the “Group Buy” once I get the formal quote I will post it and take it from there. So, please all interested people comment if you are interested in the group buy and this way we can help lots of fellas in getting their shredder parts. Thank you Guys!
@xxxolivierxxx Can you help us spread the word?
guys comment if interested
I’m definitely interested in the group buy, specifically to get two (2) units for myself.
I’m not on social media these days, so I wouldn’t be in any positon to touch base with other makers outside of email, but here are the urls to a few NYC area maker labs to gauge if they’d be interested.
And of course, you’ve got the iMakr Store in lower Manhattan you could reach out too, imakr.us. They sell 3d printers, but I imagine their people might be curious about this.
I’d spread word myself, but I wouldn’t know how to introduce myself out of the blue to anyone interested.
Are these quotes for using metric steel or did someone convert to Standard ? thanks, Lee
Yeah the version I built was metric, with the 27mm spindle. If I had read the forums first I would have just converted it. Instead I ended up ordering a 27mm hex spindle from McMaster Carr for way too much money. I also found that the bolt holes to keep the fixed teeth together were slightly bigger than the bolts I was using, causing the teeth to wiggle a bit. Not sure if the standard version accounts for that.
Anyway, if I were to do a new run, I would get the Standard version done, not metric. I’ll send Randy the quote request today.
I am interested in getting at 1 at $200, or possibly 2 sets, depending on how much cheaper it gets.
I may be interested in a set of shredder part. I know someone who gets a lot of gears waterjet cut. If someone can send me a link to a standard set of files I can ask him about getting a quote. I live in Michigan.
What I would like to do is use the shredder to make pressed boards for bat houses. I want to go down to my farmer’s market and collect recycled materials from interested folks, shred their plastic, wash, press, bathouse! Will have to play with construction and colors to get thermal properties right.
Hello Guys! Sam @samsmith got me the update on the group buy. Unfortunately the company under quoted Sam for the shredder parts.
New prices are
1-4 sets $400.00 per set,
5-9 sets $375.00 per set,
10-20 set $345.00 per set.
Where might I find shredder plans for standard thicknesses? Has anyone cut a set using these plans? Will get some prices in Florida. MLB
And those are the lowest solid quotes we’ve got so far?
OK, so I may have access to a CNC plasma cutter. I think there would be a lot more work needed to clean up the parts than water jet and even more than laser cut. I don’t know what the Kerf will be. Has anyone gotten a quote on just the steel?
I would want a set of drawings that have been converted from metric to standard. I saw mention of someone having done that on this forum but with the search function not working it is hard to find things.
