I don't, but I bought one these though and I tested it and am totally satisfied with it.

I don't, but it sure does look pretty easy to make. If and when you make one, let me know what you think, and if it's worth the trouble to make. It'll be a bit before I can get to making one.

Not now I smoked it.
That was the first cut you run it again in the back roller and it get's down to size.
The machine makes it look big
The machine is only about 7 inches wide and about 8 inches tall.

I tried making the washer thing. So far no luck in getting it to actually work. One problem is getting the washers on one bolt to have enough friction to act as one piece. the bolt just wants to spin int he middle of the washers. If you tighten them then there is to much friction. I did manage to get the whole thing to turn long enough to try and shred some leaf. The washers did not cut unless the leaf was very dry, and even then only somewhat. I then build the main drive bolt and washers with JB Weld holding everything together. this one turned out to be so tight you can't crank it at all. At any rate there is a lot more tinkering to make this thing work than I have put into it yet. I have set it aside and am looking for another answer. By the way It cost about $30.00 in washers to make (box of 100) but you can save half of that by getting just 40 to 50 of them.

too much friction between the washers as u have noticed and u can't turn it. too little and it won't cut. The trick is is to have that happy medium. Try jb welding (if that's what you're gonna use to "attach" the washers to the rod) the washers on one at a time, alternating between rods. Of course, space them so that there is enough friction to create the cutting action, and still not be hard to turn.

I've actually been thinkin about finding a square rod, and some washers with a square hole instead of round, or cutting the corners into the washers to fit the rod. I think that would help keep them spaced without actually having to attach them with some sort of glue. Of course with that idea, you have to make sure that the end washers are somehow sationary so that the rest keep that friction.

Just some ideas that already may have thought of, but thought I would put my 1/2 cent in. :mrgreen: I could be over thinkin things like I always do though. Makes for makin things hard, but that's how ya learn I guess.

ktmon, I am an over thinker also. leads to some interesting places at times. I am not giving up just didn't get the first one right. the nuts may have tightened down on me as I was trying to turn it also. I have one bolt with the washers JB welded on. works very good for holding them in place just make sure they are welded to each other and to the bolt. The second bolt the washers are not fixed in place but are turned from the friction of the drive side. I tried running it in my drill press on slow speed to see if it would wear in but it eventually just seized up. I will give it another shot and maybe JB weld the nuts in place.

The links worked fine with me when I clicked on them. If they don't work, try copy and paste the URL into the address bar.
