Awesome to see so many ppl building! 😀
Any steel will do, AISI 304 is harder and require less maintaince, and becose cutting the pieces is a bit expensive, it is a good idea to go for Stainless.
But you can use other material, I think someone even made one in aluminium.
Ah! Okey, now I understand 🙂
The .190″(4.83mm) is close to the original (5mm), the .125″(3.18mm) may increase the risk of bending the knifes? If you choose to build it in .125″(3.18mm), keep us updated, I was also thinking on making the knife in 3mm (got access to lots of 3mm stainless), but I discarded it because the risk of bent knifes.
The Emergency switch is a really good idea, when I bought my electronics I included one, should be positioned for very easy access.
Thumbs up for the frame/leg mod.
The “Knife area is decreased to avoid cutting large part in one time”, does it mean that the knifes are made of thinner steel? That would mean more parts.
All stainless steel? Shipping to Europe?
Yeah, I also think that it supposed to be M10, I can get the bolts for you, but I think the shipping time is kinda long. Send me a message if you want me to send it.
Hey @1andreasse you should read this topic https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/germany-what-up/page/2/
One set for 77.50€ + shipping.
Bom dia @diogomvo !
Well, I have been reading almost all the topics on the forums now, and it is recommended to use a motor with 1.5kw or more, with a gearbox that reduces the speed down to 50-60rpm.
Here is some other topic about motors:
Hope this helps.
It should only be the rotating knifes and spacer that need to be adjusted.
Can you reshape the V2 knifes into V2.1 or do you need to make new?
Yeah, metal container and ground it, (connect it to earth) or use deionization equipment.
Well, industrial extrders use 1.1 – 2.2 kW motors.
A corded drill is about 550W and up.
Also it depends on what you are going to do with the extruded material, I saw some post saying that if you want to extrude filament you need a steady even speed, then it is better to use a stronger motor.
Ola ricardoandres! Eu recomendo voce para entre em contato com katharinaelleke (em ingles).
The one that you have has a “tooth-barrel” that crush/grinds the wood, what about the model that uses knifeblades? Like the one on the pics. Think this one would work better?
Hey! I have been searching the forum for this, and concluded that you could use a smaller motor (then a 2kW), I will also use a 0.4-0.5kW motor for my extruder.
Nice progress 🙂
If you use aluminium or brass, there might be a risk you chip of material from the screw and contaminate the plastic?
