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
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

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.
this is an old pic but this is the quality of BBC Steel parts (pretty solid)
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.
@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
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.
(blade spacers are missing from the photo but are included)
@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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
is any of this current pricing/building? Have to ship to MT or SD unless I find someone traveling my direction.
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.
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.
Another option is contacting our builder @justinc he is building machines and selling them on the bazar.
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!
