MDF Hopper

Hello guys,

since our working space doesn’t allow us to weld yet, we needed an alternative for the hopper. Here is what we did:

Material: 4mm MDF
Machine: Laser Cutter
Assembled: normal wood glue

You can find the file here:
The hopper’s design is characterized by two parallel surfaces. We designed a lid on the top, it can be combined with a security sensor. There is also an opening in the back to have an emergency close reach to the blades, in case something gets stuck.

If you are interested in more check out our facebook page:

@verocont, nice design.
Is it possible / have you thought about making the lid transparent to see what is going on in the shredder?

Nice design @verocont
Thanks for sharing the drawings


Actually that is a very good idea! Yes we could disassemble it and replace one side with an acrilic one, which is fully transparent
