    Banff National Park. Alberta The first of the Canadian national parks (the third in the world) is an icon is itself, with images and places as beautiful and popular as Lake Peyto, in the image. Located in the heart of the Rockies, it houses other gems such as Lake Louise with emerald waters, the immense meadows of Sunshine Meadows and towering peaks. The Banff is one of the parks connected by the panoramic road Icefields Parkway. One of the beautiful locations you will meet in a Canada vacation packages

    You are absolutely correct and your story is without doubt true. I am still mad that this project is a total failure after I have been gathering boxes of plastic for 2 years and will throw them away this weekend, I am tired of the shears cutting while hoping everytime that I would have a functional shredder to take care of this step in a less painful (literally) way. https://www.ebay.com/itm/precious-plastic-shredder/223436164597?hash=item3405d54df5:g:aV0AAOSwmDBb8FZO

    Here is a brief story of the project: Started the project because the local makerspace had a $250,000. first time i made the product it looked good but was expensive to produce ($440). The whole idea of the project was to reduce the cost of sheet steel manufactured products in low quantities down to the 125$. i was charging you guys cost. Everywhere else this size shredders are going for 600 minimum. i then proceded to get the price of that waterjet down as it was 3$ a minute. I was never able to maintain usable quality down to $125. Then i went to another local makerspace with a cnc plasma. Price was right but quality and finish was unusable. went through $300 sheet trying to get it in spec. I then looked to china. I could not get it below $330. shipping was a problem as it was costing like $125 to ship. Looked locally couldnt find anything under $330. unless there was massive quantity 100+ Next i went to my university to see if i could get it involved. had a full shredder made that still cost an estimated $300. on a $100,000. The finish was way better because it was a newer machine compared to one at makerspace. Makerspace went out of business and there was no makerspace in my area for a year. New makerspace was promising to have a Fiber Laser from Pirahna. Which i thought was to be a perfect mix between quality and cost. They never did get it. Current idea is to make a custom efficient waterjet. Pump so far has cost $1000. and i can probably put the rest together for $500-$750 more. Not sure if it will be efficient enough to get manufacturing cost down to $125. But the shop would pay for air it uses so I should be able to hit that price. However, that is many months of testing and assembling and tuning. Right now having my job to keep money in and running a team for the senior project and finishing up my last classes before i graduate by the end of may. I think most of this development will have to wait or be very slow before graduating. So here is what i learned from this project. the $125 manufacturing price tag is nearly impossible to make in the states (because of inflated wages). It is nearly imposible to make in china for this price because of the shipment back cost. There is one way to meet that price Order kickstarter style. Order a couple hundred at a time from local or Chinese source. This sure will be able to hit the $125 dollar mark but that is about 15k upfront and not sure if the market even is there to sell 15+k worth of these small shredders Currently, shredders like these are selling for $600. I personally don't think that they are worth this price. This is the reason why I started this project was to drop the price down of these types of machines. As me personally i don't think this shredder is worth $300+ for its size.

    If you are unable to have the product ready and shipped in the next few months please refund me. Order #80. Thanks.

    This is indeed breath taking. The whole project has been a disgrace. How many YEARS have passed since I sent the money for getting this stupid shredder ? Why don't you just own up to it and just tell everyone that was scammed that they will get nothing ? Just excuses and stupid stories. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    it depends if this punch works correctly or not and how many punches the punch can do before dulling.

    So basicly what is going to happen is that i have a box of parts that need the quare hole chased. i have cut out 8 machines worth of parts but the taper is out of tolerance to assemble. What i have decided on doing is using a modified broach for a press to chase the hole square that will turn these unusable machines into usable ones. these are going to be the ones that are sent to you guys. after this this is when the waterjet will be manufactured and that is what will be used after all 8 have been sold. now at the new shop we have a pottery kiln that will be used to heat treat.

    Were we are currently. 1 of the preorders wants to pay the difference for a external company to cut the shredder. then for me to assemble it and ship it. so i am going to offet it to you guys asweel. currently looking at $420. so subtract whatever you alread paid and that would be what you would pay to get it within the next few weeks. i will be doing a video of me running the machine soon. also a video of his shredder before i send it out. check out his update video to my youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__kSzmTQn4k&feature=youtu.be
  15. I am now posting major 11 minute updates on youtube now. please go there to find updates. here is a example check out bellow. a lot more coming soon which is the winder. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Y0aKlGHMRE

    I am willing to pay extra whatever is needed so I can have a working one so I do not have to do the shears cutting. Please let me know how much and where to send the money. Thanks.

    I put together the protytpe a few days ago. The prototype works and everything works i just dont have a machine to cut it that i have access to. paying to have it cut would cost 250 bucks a shredder. the new tech shop that i am going to have access to is supposed to have a fiber laser that can cut the steel. but they are 3 months behind schedule of opening. they were supposed to open in may. I am sort of stuck. either the shop opens to cut it or i have to build my own diy water jet. i am going to be posting a youtube video of the prototype and the status of what is going on. i will post a picture down below of the prototype.

    I kind of gave up hope on this. I think I will continue to use my shears/woodchipper method until someone actually builds something that I can buy. It's been I think 2 years ? since i sent the money for this, hopefully I will get something before I retire in another 20.

    Ok so this is the inside scoop on the situation which is changing very rapidly. SF TheShop.build was my originally going to be my go to for cutting out the shredders. However something else has come up. TheShop.build San Jose is going full steam ahead. Supposibly the new 58,000 SF shop is going operational "Early May" In this new shop to manufacture the shredder we have 3 options, cnc plasma cutter, waterjet, and the newest best option a Fiber Laser that can cut up to 1/2" steel. Fiber Laser is how Dave Hakkens manufactures his shredders and other people on his form and in his buisness Precious plastic It is the precision of water jet but the cost of operation of a cnc plamsa. In the mean time i am getting ready to have the shredder prototype ready for maker faire. Today at the school shop i am going to be pressing the 4 bearings into the housing. Then having central shop water jet cut the rest of the parts needed to build a final assembly. then i am going to get into contact with the new GM of TheShop.Build san jose to figure out if indeed what i heard at the open house of san jose facility is correct and the fiber laser has the correct wattage and wavelength to cut atleast 1/4" steel. If that is the case manufacturing is to begin in summer.
