Step 1: To Do a Plastic Bottle Cutter You Need!

How to make a rope out of a plastic bottle?
We often need a strong wire or rope at rest or at the cottage. For example, you need a linen rope, and there's nothing suitable at hands. Don't worry! It is possible to make a long and strong rope out of an empty plastic bottle.

Step 2: You May Get 4-5 Meters of a Strong Plastic Tape of One Plastic Bottle of 0,5 Liter.

If you need a stronger rope, you may entwine a few tapes together, for example, in bunches. Here is a simple way to find a solution in some complicated situation. And we have this done again with the help of plain plastic bottle.

Step 3: Plastic Tape Is Useful for Another Crafts As Well: Basket Wickerwork, Hand Made Decorations.

    We were able to make it but as soon as e put the plastic bottle in and pulled we werent able to do it. What should we do? Please help.

    This is a great idea which I'm interested in making. For me it would be helpful to have the step-by-step instructions which are described in the video voiceover, alongside each of the photos above.

    Very handy, thanks for posting. Pity that people use the comment section to to try and make someone else look the fool.

    Glad you've made it to make an Instructable, and make some more. A link to this is on my Blog: http://faz-voce-mesmo.blogspot.pt/2016/05/brixo-lego-e-electronica-e-tinta-que.html

    Is there a reason you used the design from plasticbottlecutter.com (

    Probably because he doesn't have to credit his own stuff. That is his page and that is his video.

    the video is from his youtube channel .. but the image (the blue plastic bottle on the laser engraved cutter) in the intro step is not

I used to work for Google's Leapforce and we were taught how to check things like this out, and I would say everything posted here belongs to him.

    everything you linked to is posted by Ian Polianskii of Versailles France, not Roman Ursu of Russia. So unless he changed his name and moved to a different country....

    I made a cutter like this (http://i-dodo.ru/%D0%B1%D1%83%D1%82%D1%8B%D0%BB%D0%BA%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B7-%D1%81%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%B8%D0%BC%D0%B8-%D1%80%D1%83%D0%BA%D0%B0%D0%BC%D0%B8/). This design is simple in realization and allows to obtain a plastic tape of different sizes. Sorry for my English.

    I've seen quite a few of these bottle cutters in varying designs recently, and this may be a very silly question, but why? What is the use of the plastic strips?

    One use I have found for them is to wrap it around the handles of old tools and hit it with a heat gun for a couple minutes. It stays tight and adds grip.

    Can also be used on tools that don't normally come with grip such as crescent wrenches. Another thing to note is if you do this with milk jugs or other HDPE containers they are able to withstand solvents and gasoline which is what wrecks most handles that your replacing.

    Here you can see 2 exemples of the use of those stripes to make organizing boxes, Mex5150.

    It can be used as an *extremely* strong cord which can also be heat shrunk. Some of the videos show the applications.

    Also useful for making lanyards, baskets, back-packing straps, waterproof tie-downs, camping / tarp tie downs, (canoeing, boating, etc,) waterproof draw strings, wicker chair replacements, woven mats, survival & hunting snares ...

    -The list goes on & on & .... ;)

    Nice design!

    Very clever, thanks for sharing!

    Could one use this for 3D printer?
