    Has anyone had a go at regenerating their own resin?

    i know its not particularly expensive to buy, but it seems a waste to throw away stuff that can be re-used.

    It can be done but how much would it cost for you to send the resin and then get it back . I expect not much less than the cost of new resin and you will be getting regenerating resin which is not as good as pure resin which you should be buying
     
  6. I like the idea of this but having just read the link this seems like a very time consuming act (and possibly quite dangerous given the chemicals that are involved) for a substance that doesn't really cost a great deal to replace. I think I would rather use my time to earn some more money. Good luck to you though, be good to hear an update on how you got on!

    Yeah I'd rather just buy the resin from the profits I'm making from work.

    That looks like too much effort for me

    I thought about recycling my resin, have about sack full of spent resin stored. Just haven't got round to it yet and not long brought another sack which last me about a year. I suppose if you use lot of resin it would be worth recycling
