@anne-barbier

i really wish you could stop with the aggression towards the Precious Plastic group, as katharinaelleke said, they know your concerns and are going to try work them out in this new version, maybe express your opinions in a more calm way. After all anything towards a more ‘green’ world is a step in the right direction.

just my 2 cents

@dbougas
@imuh

added the video for you guys to watch, let me know what you think. I used a BBQ for the heat source at a very low/slow temperature, this has given me many more ideas for portability (ie. bicycle trailer) as well as a much larger oven area to use.

ill be making a video on making the mould and will get it out early next week.

please let me know your thoughts
peace

few extra images.

Got back from my holiday last week and have been working/filming a short ‘How to’ video on my process of recycling plastic. I have just finished the bed side table (bigger then what it looks) and just need a few more shots for the video, will hopefully upload tomorrow and will post the Youtube link then.

Bed Side Table measurements – H: 550mm – L: 360mm – W: 410mm – Made from recycled clear polypropylene and 15mm copper pipes

Thanks

PS. pick me for V4

i believe this could work, only if you use the same material to stuff into the bottle (usually PET), if you keep the ‘brick’ all the same plastic, it would be easy to shred/remould it once you can see it deteriorating.. then just make a new ‘brick’ to replace it.

i know it’s not the best option, but it will slow down the pollution getting into our waterways.

the plastic I’m using is still no.5 PP (clear/white dvd cases and also that stuff that holds lumber/wood together i can get for free from local hardware places)

if you would like a video of the process i could do one as I’m thinking of quite a few different ideas now and can record the next one.. i am about to head overseas for a 1 month trip so you might have to wait =(

Originally i went out in search for a descent size heat sink for a mould similar to https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/molds-from-the-scrapyard/ but unable to find one the size i wanted at a few scrap yards, i headed to the local aluminum store to buy new =( .. at the store i found a bin full of off cuts for cheap, so i picked up a few different i beams and a few flat pieces ($15USD’ish)

Back at home i easily cut the aluminum down to size with a saw, and with a few welders clamps ($2USD each) i had myself a mould to make small beams..

if you have any questions check out my forum post..

hey Nick
@imuh

your team sounds like they’re having fun!!
for your greasing options – have you tried with nothing yet? (no baking paper or anything)
also let your mould cool down naturally (may take an hour or 2) and should pop right out.

keep it up!!

@tinytim

yeah it is quite remarkable =P keep me posted if you get onto it.!.

so far the aluminum mould would only have set me back $10-20USD for clamps and aluminum =)

thanks @imuh

you’re correct, i don’t use anything between the plastic and aluminum, i believe once the plastic is completely cooled down it doesn’t stick to anything and just pops out..

but if that’s not the case, i recommend dish washing detergent.

 

loving the simplicity with your mold!!

all the best

before you spend money on a machine(extruder/shredder) i would use this technique to weave plastic, very cheap and easy to make…

@timslab
hey mate

I’ve been doing some experiments with Polypropylene and to polish it up a little more without any additives, i followed how this guy did it on YouTube..

just using the polishing wheel after a high grit sandpaper, works well..
