Tell us about yourself!
a lot of work for a $50 dust collector... but maybe. I have had some success with melting plastic into sheets in a cookie tray.
I cut my milk jugs into 1 inch by 4 inch strips with trauma shears in just a minute or two per jug. These melted easily at 400F in under 20 minutes, and went under the clamp. No joy at pulverizing in my food processor. No cool speckled look, but appears solid, no voids or inclusions. Also, my chop saw produces great shavings, but I'll need to set up a collector without all the wood dust if I want to re-use them.
So... my attempt to pulverize HPDE in a food processor, but I cut them into 1 inch by 4 inch strips. They melted nicely at 400F in a toaster oven, and went into the mold easily under clamp pressure they seem to be bonded.
Pbarsamian: The fumes are there and bad for the lungs. Nothing that cant be ventilated away. Maybe not a good winter project without a fume hood or ventilation system...
Do you do anything other than pull ups, like leg raises, or offset pull ups? I'm buying a new house soon, and leaning toward concrete, but it sure would be easier to hammer in a couple stakes.
