Also Gingery books are easy to read and understand.

The point is, it's a good learning project, but you're better off buying your own small IM machine for a few hundred bucks...
William Bickford
Excellent, beginner-level primer on injection molding.

Gingery books are always good do it your self books. Of course you needs tools as you would to build any machine. Small injection molding machines go for about $1000. To build one you will have to buy some stuff like the heating cartridges and steel for the parts. Half the fun of a Gingery book is actually building the machines. So for a $100 in supplies and a day to a week making and assembling the parts you will have a working machine. Also Gingery books are easy to read and understand.

A quick read and definitely enjoyable in knowing how "possible" it is to make your own 1/2 oz. injection molding machine. Only major problem... You need a few tools; probably a bandsaw, welding equipment, a good drill press and most likely a lathe. But then again, if you want to make some molds for the IM machine you probably already have the tools I listed! The point is, it's a good learning project, but you're better off buying your own small IM machine for a few hundred bucks...

Format: Paperback
at 120+ pages, Secrets of building a plastic injection molding machine, is a pretty quick read. I haven't gotten around to trying to build such a device yet, cause honestly I've never built anything before..
a few words though. The deivce once built works with strips of plastics you've collected from old recyclables around the house.. soda bottles, etc.. which is pretty cool.
the machine itself however consists of about 6 pages, of which 80 % is screws and bolts and washers.. The back of the books has a very small list of possible suppliers for some of the more unique parts, and it looks like the machine itself will take abour roughly 100 bucks to make, give or take a little.
So if you've already built a few things then by all means this is gonna be a good time for you, to expand what you can do.
if you haven't touched a screw driver lately, you might want to start somewhere else...

This book by Gingery is well laid out and easy to follow. Will definitely be used as a reference to build an injection machine in the very near future. I will be purchasing additional Gingery titles as there is a wealth of information for the do it yourself types.

Format: Paperback
This little book packs a good punch. It has thorough instructions to build a small injection molding machine capable of creating small 1"-cube-ish size items. I suspect the parts list sources may be outdated, but I don't think it would be difficult to overcome. It is well written, and well illustrated. It would be nice if you could download a larger version of the plans, electronically.
