Preparation of a Shredder for Various Tests.




About: Hi, I'm shooting a video on YouTube. And the technology of creation is shared with you.

Hi friends, this is my first post. Unfortunately I speak English poorly. To write a post I use Google translator.

Step 1: The Idea of Making a Video.

First we shot a video with molten aluminum. But such videos were not very popular with subscribers.

There was an idea to shoot a video using a shredder machine.

Step 2: Coloring Shredder

For the recognition of the channel. It was decided to paint the shredder in yellow strips. Still make the main color blue (about this a little further).

Step 3: Shredder Preparation.

After buying the shredder, immediately came up with a drill.

But the idea failed, it was very uncomfortable and unsafe. The shredder turned over, and it was difficult to hold the drill.

Step 4: Unsuccessful Videos

Using a drill, the videos were still filmed. Beauty in the experiment did not work. There was a usual video of which and so it is full in YouTube.

Step 5: Gear Motor

After an unsuccessful test, a motor reducer was added.

Step 6: Motor and Shredder

Turned to the turner. The master assembled a construction for me.

Step 7: Stable Slow Shredder Operation

The shredder on the new design began to work fine. Several videos were filmed. Faced with the problem that large shredder objects can not be bragged.

Step 8: Future Plans

Current motor, weak - 0,18 kW

I plan to replace in the future with a more wet 1.2 kW

    Do you have a link to the page for the shredder you bought?

    When I search eBay for "shredder", all I can find is, "paper shredder" and "cheese shredder".
