Hi Diego, yes me and my friend Tavi just started on making a shredder and we both are from around Bern.
Would love to hear from you on a skype or meet up in Bern
Greetings Jonathan and Tavi
Please write me if you have any other Questions.
I would love to see the tub when you are done.
So i did some more research, the air welders are like “feared” mostly very expensive.
So I would take some wire and tie the two barrels together and then use some “HDPE” maybe even from Milk Jugs ect. to connect both of the barrels together. Ideal would be to use Heat gun if you have one (the Hotter the better) to attach thin HDPE over the whole weld and maybe even use an old soldering iron to finish it up, melt in the wire ect.
Warning Plastic gases can be Deadly, so only in a “well ventilated” area…
While using a 3d pen definitely will work to connect the pieces it definitely won’t be too strong.
With plastic welding I have seen two ways untill now either with hot air, very small nozzle or just using a very cheap sodering iron.
Check out this video for a more in-depth explanation: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gRCMIDILfEI
While using a sodering iron is definitely cheaper and very handy for small, tasks for a whole barrel it would definitely be worth looking into the hot air welding, though more expensive it would be way more time efficient, for big tasks…
But for a one-time thing I would probably go for the soldering iron.
How exactly do you need the barrels connected together, cut in half??
Have you considred “Plastik Welding” i dont know much myself and if it would stand up to temperature change…
Or just some rivets, metall wish washers? or plastik rivets? and some basic silicon gel should defently work?!
What is it for??
