- Here is another information i got elswhere around:
I've played around with melting 2 liter bottles and also milk jugs
(PETE and HDPE) and the only way it works is by pressure injecting.
Made many fishing lures and outdoor items this way. Here's a link to
give an idea of a homemade die pressure unit.
Fumes are an outside job for sure! Toaster oven with variable heat
up to 500 deg. F. works good.
Start at 200 and work up to 350-375 in the course of an hour and a half.

"Best of all you'll be molding with plastic recycled from milk jugs,
soda pop bottles, plastic oil cans, and more. Your raw materials are
free and plentiful."
