[USA]Company Making Shredder parts updated Oct2019

18/01/2017 at 05:43

Hello guys!

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 Oct 2019: ( so far the lowest in USA)
– 1 set $425.00
– 2-5 sets 300.00ea
– 6-10 sets $285.00set
– Shafts are still currently at $38.00 but could raise.
– Bearings $17.50ea.
****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

Website: http://www.bbcsteel.com
Contact for BBC Steel: Randy [email protected]

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****

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.

19/01/2018 at 02:22

this is an old pic but this is the quality of BBC Steel parts (pretty solid)

26/01/2017 at 04:34

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.

26/01/2017 at 02:54

I’m in Seattle and I was quoted about 3 times what @SamSmith paid. I would love to get in on a group buy!

26/01/2017 at 01:49

@davehakkens Thank you Sir!

(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!

Can you help us spread the word?

guys comment if interested

Parts set includes all parts to build a shredder mechanism. To build an entire machine you will need to purchase a motor, gearbox, wiring, then build a frame and hopper.
Details here:
(blade spacers are missing from the photo but are included)

19/01/2018 at 02:20

@emmsclaire . oh I forgot to mention I created the group on FB where you can see pics of my shredder built and yes I ordered the full stainless steel set


19/01/2018 at 01:34

@nostradamus1973 Hi, I understand your point. I wish I knew a better company to get this parts for cheaper, unless is a group buy when the company will lower the prices for more quantity. More quantity = cheaper

You can try BBC Steel which is the company I’ve chosen so far they have been good to me and even called to thank me. Because this post they have been receiving a lot of orders to ship all over the world.

04/12/2017 at 18:53

I’m working on getting cheaper pricing for the shredder, including some ideas I have for the motor. Should have something together by new years. I’ve been working in manufacturing for 10+ years now, I’ll get it rocking!

03/02/2017 at 20:20

hi every one
price for a set from canada is 450 cad + shipping it an imperial set look like the original from dave but wider 7 inch that include shaft bearing and laser cut parts gone be available on ebay next week i can do mass production

31/01/2017 at 08:03

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.

26/01/2017 at 17:05

@benismobile @bgrocks thank you for supporting this group buy I will let everybody know once everything is set up please drop your emails here

Sam check your email

25/01/2017 at 23:11

25/01/2017 at 21:30

@samsmith Wow!Yes please Im glad you came across this post! thank you!

Yes email me to [email protected] to coordinate

I will post the update now!

24/01/2017 at 18:22

Ok, that definitely looks better than the previous quotes folks were sharing. I’d like to get two units. So, how do we make this thing happen on our ends? Does @chriskudla send us a note with an email address or something?

23/01/2017 at 14:55

@benismobile Hi, that is correct. Chris from upstate New York @chriskudla found a company with even lower prices, this is break down:

1 set- $650
2 sets- $550 each
10 sets- $375 each

plus shipping

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.

22/01/2017 at 19:33

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?

09/04/2018 at 20:49

@buktoff like stated on my post, you can contract randy at [email protected] with your order or if you would like to buy an already assembled shredder you can contract @justinc

09/04/2018 at 20:47

@jonniepalmer please see @justinc reply

09/04/2018 at 20:46

@treasurestate you can contact Randy at [email protected] with your order or if you would like to buy an already assembled shredder you can contract @justinc

07/04/2018 at 15:00

Have you ordered already treasurestate? I’m on the other side of the state and would like one and possibly know someone near you that would be interested.

07/04/2018 at 14:57

is any of this current pricing/building? Have to ship to MT or SD unless I find someone traveling my direction.

31/03/2018 at 18:28

I’m selling full sets of parts for DIY builds and complete units. Cost includes domestic shipping and a donation to Precious Plastic. With all of the parts and shipping added up you’ll find that the pricing is competitive with most other options and saves a lot of time researching and sourcing.


31/03/2018 at 05:57

I too am interested in going in on a 2+ order for the price break (I only need one). I am in Helena, MT – Let me know what you are thinking for timelines, etc.


29/03/2018 at 17:38

@susanarts Hi! you can contract Randy from BBC Steel, [email protected] as you can see on the post the prices for one or more sets are really cheap im sure you can get you hands on 2.

Another option is contacting our builder @justinc he is building machines and selling them on the bazar.

20/03/2018 at 21:22

Anyone looking for a full kit package of shredder parts in the USA can also purchase through my Bazar listing HERE
Assembled shredder mechanisms are HERE

Domestic shipping included and a percentage of the price is donated to Precious Plastic to further development and education.

11/03/2018 at 19:55

I’m in early stages. Ready to begin a build soon and would love info on cheaper parts to build one or two machines please! I’ll be in Minneapolis to begin this project if anyone wants to combine forces 🙂
Would someone please email me info on affordable parts and/or inexpensive machines for sale even? Thank you!
