Flat Pack Juicer




Introduction: Flat Pack Juicer

There's never enough space in a kitchen cupboard. With this instructable, you learn how to make your own flat pack juicer. It doesn't take much space in your cupboard anymore, it's fun to make and works as wel as a juicer from the store!

Step 1: What Do You Need?

To make the DIY flat pack juicer you will need:

- a cutting mat

- tape

- exacto knife

- cutter knife

- math compass

- pencil

- sheets of polypropylene in the colors you want. (I used yellow, transparent and white) Make sure you have a sheet of 0.5mm thick, one of 1mm and one of 2mm.

Step 2: The Shape

Print these files on A4, then you have the shapes in full size

Step 3: Cutting the Shapes: Small Shape

On the polypropylene with thickness 0.5mm, you cut out the small shape;

First cut out around the shape in paper. Stick the paper to the PP sheet with tape.

Cut on the lines; the red lines have to be cut completely, on the black lines an incision on the front and the blue lines an incision on the back of the PP sheet.

Step 4: Cutting the Shapes: Big Shape

On the PP sheet with thickness 1mm, you cut the big shape. The same way you did with the small shape.

Note: on one side, there is no cutout; this side will be used to pour the juice.

Step 5: Cutting the Shapes: the Ring

On the PP sheet with thickness 2mm, you cut the ring. The ring has an outside diameter of 156mm and an inside diameter of 126 mm.

Step 6: Assembling the Parts

Put the big and the small shape together as shown on the pictures.

Step 7: Ready to Use!

To use your juicer, put the ring around the other parts as shown on the pictures. Now your juicer is ready to use!

Step 8: How to Use

1) Press the foldable parts in the ring

2) Squeeze

3) Poor

4) Rinse (or put it in the dishwasher)

5) Let it dry or dry it with a towel

6) unfold to store away
