There are many machines available in the market which recycle plastic waste (plastic bottles), but this machine is for small-scale, portable and domestic purpose. The cost of this machine is very low compared to the machines available outside. This machine is designed to cut the large solid material into small pieces. This paper throws light on the mechanism used in the machine and primarily about the analysis (manual and computational) of the shaft, on which the cutting blades are mounted.
