    Silicone is one of the few materials that WILL have a molecular bond mixing cured material and liquid. You can easily recycle it many times with perfect results whether in chunks or powdered.
    I learned this in Korea where a business venture I had made molds by the hundreds for electroforming.

      Finally a win. This baby minces the silicone like a BOSS. I made the blade from a repurposing planer blade that I sectioned and brazed to the shaft. I made another die plate from an old drill press stand that I cut up. A little fine tuning to easily locate the blade/plate in the center of the cylinder and I'll add some power.
