244€ sounds pretty good. Indeed I also think steel laser cutters are still much too expensive for FabLabs (from what I’ve seen).
There’s a cnc plasma cutter here in Brussels, but the edge quality isn’t nearly good enough for this application.
Is there a place online where your work with play and plastic live? I’d be very interested to see what you’re up to. I also have some evil plans to make play equipment and work with kids…. 🙂
Just got the first price back for the shredder parts, they are as follows:
Stainless steel grade 304
472.72€ for all parts in 3,6 and 6mm. excluding vat @ 21% so 572.00€ in total
Mild steel grade ST37
360.94€ for all parts in 3,6 and 6mm. excluding vat @ 21% so 437.00€ in total
I’ll keep adding figures as they come in 🙂
I was wondering if there was a price comparison between stainless steel and mild steel shredder parts? Even if it is just a ‘ballpark’ figure?
Also if there was an argument for laser cut or water cut parts?
I presume stainless wold be much more durable time wise? If you have sometimes dirty or partially wet plastic then mild steel might…[Read more]
I was wondering if you could indicate the cost difference in mild steel vs. stainless blades for the grinder? Also is there much difference in water vs. laser cut parts?
I presume stainless would last longer do better etc.
Thanks for your work!
