Homemade plastic injection molding machine. Made by following plans from Gingery publishing Plastic Injection Molding Attachment for the Drill Press.

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:
Machine the basic mechanical components:

Assembled components attached to arbor press:
