Making Guns; Plastic Extruding Gun

We have what can only be thought of as an extremely unhealthy relationship with the polymers that completely surround and make up our daily lives, from the abuse of plastic bags to horror stories of South Sea Islands, isn't it time we try to rethink The extrusion of polymers is usually a huge and cumbersome task carried out in distant factories, the plastic extruding gun turns it into a handheld process. Forming recycled HDPE into exciting and extravagant forms that again celebrate the qualities of a very under-recognised material.
