Who here is building a Filastruder?
It is a device to extrude filament for 3D printers from raw ABS pellets for those who do not know what they are.

I started building a larger version of the extruder. Here is a picture of the pair that I started.

Also to go along with the extruders is a little bag of pellets.

But I told my wife it's only 50 pounds. Instant filament.
