Great project! It gave me many ideas too. Why not make a simple harbor press instead of a crank? Oh, I just found another here that are internally heated on the cheap.https://www.instructables.com/id/Plastic-injection... I'm going to take the best parts of each and make my own model I think. I'm working on using this for plastic welding with extruded plastic filler. My nozzle diameter would max out around 3/16" tops.Surely we can find some sort of mechanical advantage that would allow for caulking gun trigger type applicating? Maybe a linear actuator plunger? I saw a handheld model on youtube made for welding large, plastic trash bins. It included a means of extruding but hidden well unless I missed it.Thanks!JD

Very well done! I've made 1 corona discharge plate myself MANY years ago and used the ballast from a neon sign. It was very dangerous but sure cranked out some O3. My next try was via uv hid lights inside a piece of pvc backed by a pc muffin fan. Those work great, but can't compete w/ corona discharge plates for output. I've seen the exact idea sold as ozone cannons. If you only need to clear the air a little, these may work better for that app., but not for killing molds imo.
I too really like the lawn mower recoil-r idea, but it's too large imo for this. Try a recoil spring from a weedeater or gas powered rc car, they are exact miniatures of the lawn mower. I'm currently trying to envision using a flange adapter to the top of the plastic tube so you could mount the actual coil housing to the spindle/lighter housing. I think I have a weedeater that's beyond cost effective repair, I'll tear it apart if/when I get a chance. I think that would just put this1 over the top.I'll let you know what I find, please keep us posted if you beat me to it.Thanks, JD
