At last, here is a book that brings the art of plastic injection molding to the home shop level. Working with plastics can be a fun and profitable hobby. If you have ever wanted to produce custom made plastic parts or just want to know how it’s done then this book is for you.
Included are complete step-by-step instructions on how to build a small inexpensive table top injection molding machine capable of injection up to 1/2 ounce of plastic into a mold. Sources for plastic will be those things normally thrown away: plastic milk jugs, soda pop bottles, plastic oil cans, etc.
You will learn the basic principles of injection molding and how to design and make your own molds. begin by making a simple mold to test the machine. then a mold for a plastic knob that will be used on the machine. Progress to a mold for a small plastic container with a snap lid. It won’t be long before you will be creating new products of your own design.
Vince even shows you how to cast replacements for broken or missing plastic parts.
Just think of the possibilities.
