    Plastic Injection Molding Machine

    Homemade plastic injection molding machine. Made by following plans from Gingery publishing Plastic Injection Molding Attachment for the Drill Press. The plans specify using a drill press to apply load to the injection molders cylinder. I have mounted my injection molder to a 1 ton arbor press that is positioned on a stand to allow the injection molding cylinder to hang below the arbor press.

    Start with stainless steel stock:

    Great post, scorch! I specially like your use of the arbor press in place of the drill press.
