We've been very generously loaned a small injection moulding machine. It's currently sat on the floor by the vacuum former.

Someone needs to work out how to use it :-) And then write up the process on the wiki

Will have a nose at the make / model when next in and see if I can find some info online.

I had this extruding plastic no problem @ 3 weeks ago , the machine needs a new temp control knob ,steel blocks for holding moulds ( if somebody can make a mould ) ? .a lever for securing the mould ,new bolts at bottom to allow front slider to move freely . PLA pellets for the feed ...

1 pellets into hopper .2 move feed flap at side to fill feeder cone .3 wind piston fully up to let pellets drop into extruder .4 wind lever down to extrude . 5 eat spinach ! ,you'll need arms like Popeye :)

I was looking for second hand moulds for experimenting with a while ago and
got sidetracked :) Will see if I can track one or two down again. Got
nowhere looking for docs, other than a lot of dead threads of people
looking for docs...

I know what you mean ,I was looking at making something like this for a test
http://www.instructables.com/id/Home-Plastic-Injection-Molding-with-an-Epoxy-Mold/ ,
but my time is very limited at the moment but it would be good to see it working .

Don't think docs would help much tbh it's straightforward enough

Do we still have this machine? Has it been returned?

Is this still a live issue?

I think this thing works now, do we have the instructions for use anywhere? If so, let's tidy this issue away.

You think wrong. It doesn't work yet. However, issue #928 has better information in what needs doing to it, so although this is older, I'm going to close it as a duplicate of that.
