I think there should be a dedicated section for product ideas. The bazaar is for selling things sure but not everyone is using it. To be truly successful we must have thing s for people to make that will get bought. If those items are essentials to daily living then they will fly out the door and put pressure on the collecting, shredding moulding etc which would be great! I am a practical person and things like mallet heads and knife handles grips and practical. A lovely woven style fruit basket would gather dust.

I struggle to Message everyone for group events in my country. I would be great to be able to send a quick message to a group that could be filtered down a little tighter.
I would like to be able to message everyone in New Zealand about meet ups or training or promotions etc so we can drive this harder in NZ.
Being able to narrow the location down would be handy as well like to a city or province

@amdnox I love the analogy. I live in an English speaking country and have had German, Dutch, Swiss and French people stay with me. I try very hard to learn some of their language, even if it’s just to say good morning I hope you slept well, I think if people try and as you say if they don’t get it 100% correct who cares. The intent and the drive to share and help is the most important thing!

I set up a Kiwi FB page, the same as what you are taking about. I sent invites to everyone as jegor-m said above, filter for country then message everyone. Bloody time consuming but got there in the end, I’m lucky there are only just over 80 in NZ at the moment and I check every few days for noobs and message them. We organised a meet up last Saturday which was super nice. ( my new favourite saying, cheers Dave)

@mathijsstroober You are right, most plastics break down in sunlight, but if the decking is one uniform type of plastic instead of blended like some I have seen on youtube then it could be recycled and re applied.

I was thinking of using SS screws instead of nailing, so that would make it easier to remove later on.

I read a bunch of sites talking about uv stabilisers and HALS but got very bored. I reckon just give em a crack and see how long ya get. After all plastics are better going a bit white on the surface on a deck than filling the guts of Albatros or sea turtles.

I have looked at this too, I haven’t seen any plastic arrow shafts on the net. I have seen some crossbow bolts but not full arrows. Does this means plastic doesn’t have the right properties? I have no idea. As for nocks and tips they must be able to be used. I was also wondering if a take down bow could use a plastic grip to attach wooden or fibreglass limbs to? You could make some type of quiver, bow case, what about fletches?
I like archery but have very little time or money, quite sad really.

Wow! that’s awesome! I love the colours.

I too want to make beams. I also want to have a go at making Decking, VERY practical use and beams etc use a huge amount of plastic waste which is awesome.

I will be watching out for your extruder in the future!

Wow, really liked this Post. The pictures with the light coming up through the items looked very cool. So buffing and super fine buffing compound seems to be the go.

I have looked at this too. Very interesting. One of the videos I watched from Russia used many types of plastics but said they wouldn’t discuss details of getting around the varying melting points as it was their intellectual property. I’m thinking they over cook the lower melting point plastics as there appeared to be fumes.

I like the everblock idea, it would use a crapload of plastic and moulding/pressure would be a bit intense but good idea, may be a different style of block?
