Arrow I'd like to make a pill press

Hi DIY!

I make my own herbal supplements and while the gellcaps I've been using have been working just fine, I'd like to step it up a notch and press some pills. I'm not really sure where to start but I was thinking I might have a bit o' luck with a beefy cylindrical jack and a thick pipe and compression rod sort of deal. I'd draw it up but my lappy has a touchpad and you know how shit it is too mspaint with one of those.

Any tips you kids have would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, I'd also like the pills to be <3 shaped if at ALL possible.

Here is a little thing i whipped up for you on paint.

Now construction is going to be easy the hard part is finding the metal. Which should only take you a trip to your nearest super hardware store; home depot, lowes. I only suggest this because they should carry the items needed to construct a pill press.

material.
-Aluminum rod or bar. (they should be able to cut one to length on site)
-a decent drill bit to the size of your choosing. (don't be cheap hear)
-an aluminum rod that is equivalent to the hole drilled.
-power drill (drill press would be best option though.)
-hammer (any means of physically applying pressure to the pill.)

Im not sure how you would make a heart shaped pill, i think that would require some pricey equipment. it would probably be cheap in that case to buy one manufactured in that style.

Very cool. I was under the impression though that I'd need a bit more displacement power than a hammer will give me. Is that not true? Will I not need a jack of some kind?

As for makin' them heart shaped could I just make a heart shaped mold on the end of the pole?

Like:

(<3) instead of (O)

if that makes any sense.

You could make a heart IMPRESSION, but the pill itself would be very difficult to make heart shaped using the method above.

A hammer should be fine, but you could easily make "press" using the same idea as a drill press, which is a pretty simple contraption.

Cool cool cool. Coring out the rod in a heart shape would definitely be impossible/ineffective?

I'm not sure I exactly understand the setup actually. Large aluminum pipe is drilled out, pill medium is inserted and then the smaller pipe is used to compress it? Or have I got that all wrong? I'm sorry, I can't think spatially very well when high.

If you cut the end of the rod it wouldn't make the pill itself a heart shape, just make an impression. If the entire tip was heart shaped, it'd probably cause a really misshaped pill, because there is not even pressure all around. Of course, it could possibly compress JUST the pill medium and the rest of the medium would fall off or something, but I doubt that would happen.

In order to make the pill itself heart shaped, you'd need to make both the hollow tube AND the solid rod (at least, the tip) into a heart shape.

You got the setup right, though.

Alternatively the female rod could be thread with a cap on the end that is the female heart shape and at the end of the male rod the male heart shape could be cut.

Mass production you'd probalby want some sort of jack and a way to distirbute the force evenly on all of the molds.

yeah right, we all know what he's really making you can't just drill a hole in some alluminum bar, press with a cylinder and expect to get a pill back out of it, you also need to add some type of binder to make the E stick togethor, and you also have to furthur cut it to make the dose the size of a pill.

with that in mind, you also need somthing more acuratly made than what you'll get with a drill press or even a hand drill.

you best bet is to get a pollen press

No, it doesn't make him a bad guy. He just ought to be less coy with his real intentions.

Umm, pill presses use hydrolic jacks to generate tens of thousands of pounds of pressure... there is no way your little DIY thing is going to be a pill press, not by any stretch of the imagination.

Drill the hole all the way through, tap one end, add a bolt. That way you can get the bastards out

For the heart shape you would probably have to cast it. Make 2 half heart shaped pieces in foam, then use the method here as an example. Then join the 2 halves together, and make a rod that will fit the hole you just made. It will probably be a pain in the ass to get it perfectly straight though, but it's just an idea.

Maybe look for the patents of pill presses?

Lies. I've pressed pills with the pressure my hand and grip could exert on a metal rod without even the simplest of mechanical press.

They came out just fine.

You don't need much pressure if your using the right binder's. I made a press a while back. I never made any shape's of different pills but i do know how to make your own stamps for the press if interested?

EDM..
To make the rod just cut out a bit of sheet metal and pass your rod through, for the other end use that rod to do the cutting

I am curious of how to make a simple manual pill press as well. I found one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/Herbal-Vitamin-P...d=p3286.c0.m14
It's sold online at other places as well. This seems the simplest method of making a pill press. How would you go about constructing one of these? I did not really understand previous instructions without having pictures to reference to.

Hi guys,

I was reading your feed. I have a mechanical press an I make “Herbal” tablets. I know how you can make your pills hart shaped. The company that sold me my press sells dies. www.londonfashionarts.co.uk

They also do binding agents.

As for the “Beacon” do you really think that they can be bothered with you? Firstly you are not giving out personal details, which makes you very hard to find. Secondly there are presses that can make 250,000 tablets per hour. With you press you maybe able to press 100 per hour. If I was a copper I would know who I was looking for!
