Very intriguing and thought provoking....are you using the heating nozzle as well to apply a "melt" to the filament or is it just fed right through and "chipped"?

No heat, the extruder feeds the filament while the drill bit cuts. Have used it to pelletize about 2kg of filament scrap/ends. Makes quite a racket.

How did you get the idea to use the side of a drill bit to make pellets? That's a very clever solution.

Others have tried similar things with router bits and forstner bits... wanted to make something with parts I had around.
