Although designed to be an electric can crusher, the plans can be modified to turn the unit into a hand-cranked crusher
Duluth, MN (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
The DIY can crusher is the latest construction plan to be released by Gizmoplans, a company known for its do-it-yourself projects. The newest unit to be added under the company's recycling equipment section, the electric aluminum can crusher will make short work when it comes to compressing aluminum cans. People will find that the can crusher plans are easy to follow and that building one takes very little time.
More people are starting to collect and redeem aluminum cans but crushing them can be a time-consuming and painful experience – especially if someone is trying to do this by hand. With the release of these can crusher plans, people will now be able to build their own electric aluminum can crusher. Within seconds, aluminum cans are crushed and dropped into a storage bag, box, trash can, or other depository, making them ready for transportation to a recycling plant. This makes aluminum can recycling easy for companies, non profit organizations, restaurants, schools, and private citizens to implement.
Although designed to be an electric can crusher, the plans can be modified to turn the unit into a hand-cranked crusher. In addition, if someone is looking for a way to save money on the construction of the unit, they can substitute the steel base for a wooden base. The aluminum can crusher has the ability to crush aluminum cans of all sizes and the plans can be adjusted to create a larger crushing chamber, if needed.
