  • Can/Bottle Crusher

    Guys, I am a High School teacher and I have given my students a problem solving project. I have asked them to come up with a "Water Bottle Crusher". I was on the site a couple of months ago and found a can crusher that was very heavy duty. One of my students wanted to see the design again and I cant find it. Can anyone help?

    Take a look on the Miller projects pages. I love that motorized one the guy
    refurbished and entered in the contest. I'm sure it could be modified to do bottles too.

      Cans stay crushed when you do them. To do plastic water bottles I think a shredder may be better. Flails like in a wood chipper would work but on a smaller scale. Just an idea

        This one?

          might be too dangerous but look into the grinders used to recycle plastic in most auto plants.

          think heavy duty enclosed planer head.
