Anyone build a crusher for oil and fuel filters? If so care to share. I am brainstorming and would like to hear from those that have already invented the wheel! Thanks!

Jim that's a good idea. My son and I need to make a filter press real soon. He services trucks commercially and accumulates a bunch of filters. A couple of weeks ago I pulled a burned truck engine filter out of the burn pile and crushed it with my press. The filter showed evidence of getting very hot from the fire but when I pressed it I squeezed another cup of oil out of it. I did find out my press doesn't have enough oomph to squish the filter all the way down. It was still three inches tall when the press stopped.

Here's a picture of what I described below.
Easy peasy.

I originally thought I'd need a cylinder for the ram to ride in, to keep it vertical. I've crushed about 25 filters with it and sometimes the filter doesn't start compressing evenly. But I've found that the piece of pipe that's welded to the ram plate will keep it enough vertical that eventually the filter will give in & end up crushing as a flat pancake.

Take a wet cylinder about 4" in diameter and a slug of 4" round mild steel bar stock. Cut the sleeve to about 7 inches and put the assembly with a filter under the round in a press. with a pan under to catch oil it will work for ever. Jim

No crusher here, just old filters on every fence post close to the shop. After a couple weeks toss in the scrap metal bin.

Dad throws the filters in the wood burner. Then throws the can in the scrap heap.

I just place the well drained filter next to the kindling in the stove. When the fire is low or out , just pick the metal out with the p o k e r and toss into the recycling or garbage as suitable.

I use a wood splitter with a fixed wedge, I made up an i-beam that I can stand on end and clamp to the beam backed by the wedge. drill a hole on the end of the filters and let them drain good.

I have a Snap-on one. Bought it at an auction a few years back. A new one now is over a grand.I think I gave a hundred bucks for it. It is just a big Air cylinder. Oil runs out the bottom into a bucket.

Yep. Uses our HF hyd press. Piece of scrap C-channel wide enough for our biggest filter (PH8A). Two scrap pieces of flat steel plate welded on the ends of the C-channel to make a tub out of it. Bung hole for oil drain drilled in bottom of C-channel and pipe nipple screwed in (shoulda welded but was dinking around with set of pipe taps). Separate press plate is a scrap piece of 1/4" plate cut to roughly fit into the C-channel tub (don't want a tight fit) and a piece of black iron pipe welded on top (pipe is sized to fit the press ram).

It's simple, works well. Sorry for wordy descrip, will try to get some pix tomorrow or Sun.
