HOW TO – Make a homemade leaf shredder

HOW TO – Make a homemade leaf shredder

Robbtoberfest writes –

I made this to shred leaves and break apart seed heads in wildflowers I like to grow. Unfortunately the 1976 weedeater motor burned up as I was getting ready to make a video of it working. I’ll have to wait for spring cleanup in a few weeks to scavenge another electric string trimmer; then I’ll post the video.

You’ll need:

A Round Trash Can
A Old Electric String Trimmer (gas if you’re really good at mods)
Some Scrap wood 1x2s
.25″ Hardware Cloth
1″ Deck Screws or Similar Screw
