Can Crusher idea

Please Login to Comment

everyone im needing help on making a can crusher designe that rather can be hand driven or hooked up to a motor it would be great to make this together as a group so thats its done quicker lets discuss about the topic further

ok ive got some plans that are in progress right now ill make the model and tell you all when its done ive been working weeks on the project so any more ideas

The only problem that I foresee with hooking a simple can crusher up to a motor is that in order to make a motor have enough force to crush the can, and be small and compact, the process will be very slow. Unless you are going to put more than $20-$40 on a motor that has a decent amount of torque to start with.
