Mr. Hakkens,

I’ve been watching your project for a long time and really wanted to take on recycling for 2 years now.

I have always wondered how you made that safari-esque hat seen here around 2:10. I know you used the extrusion machine but how? My best guess besides magic is that you cut out a hole in a piece of plywood for someone’s head to partly stick out of and you worked with them on a turntable.

I have finally come across all the tools needed to commit to making an extruder and shredder but I will have to source some money, but that can be done.

Anyway, cheers from California! (sorry about the duplication, I realized just after i clicked upload that i forgot the link and thought it didn’t post and I didn’t check)

In the shredder schematics, there is a drawing titled “Shredding Dxf Laser Files”. In the bottom right, there are part numbers and descriptions. The numbers in the part number that look like (01.04.XX) directly correspond to the ones in the download file. Accompanying each part is the description which looks like (XXXxXXXxX). This is the dimensions that you would need to send in along with the .dxf file. the numbers are LxWxT and in millimeters. According to my research for my own school project (talk to your laser cutting place first) but American sheet metal doesn’t come in millimeter thickness so you should look into parts that are actually 3,5,6 mm thick and also ones that are the nearest sheet metal size up and polish/sand them down. This makes the machinist have to do less work and cost you less $$$.
