    Our Briquette Maker has been in use for about six months now and is standing up to daily wear-and-tear very well. We are building up a huge stack of 'logs' which have cost us virtually NOTHING, which is great news considering how much all fuels now cost.
    The Briquette Maker is extremely simple to use and produces neat oblong 'logs' which burn well once they have fully dried out. We use it to get rid of all our junk mail, newspapers, magazines, paperwork, envelopes and so on.
    Normally we soak the rubbish for 24hrs; we don't use bleach (cos we're trying to be properly eco!) but leave the bucket in a warm place. Newspaper and white paper goes mushy very fast; glossy magazine paper and brochures take much longer to break down and benefit from 'dobbing' with a big stick. The best logs have a decent proportion of newspaper or similar in them because the more glossy stuff goes in, the harder it is to get them to burn.
    We've left our logs for three months in a greenhouse to dry thoroughly: you also need to make sure that in wet weather they don't absorb moisture from the atmosphere!
    Another tip: if your material is full of staples (like magazines often are) or plastic windows or glue/gum, then it's best to leave these bits out before you soak the paper. Any woodburner won't like getting lots of metal/plastic fed to it, so we try to weed them out as we go.
    It make take a few attempts to get the hang of the maker, so don't be afraid to get a bit mucky (or buy thick rubber gloves), and learn how to use your feet to keep the frame steady as you extract each log!

    This is a fab piece of kit; proving to be robust and it's going to save us a fortune in wood and heatlogs this winter.

    I recently inherited a wood stove and soon exhausted my supply of freely available wood. The price of logs varies from around £70 to £120 a cubic metre. A visit to my local hardware chain informed me that even a small bag of logs would set me back around £8.

    Looking for some way of reducing my consumption of wood and coal (even more expensive) I chanced upon the paper log maker from Eko Mania, which from the reviews I had read was the most sturdy of the ones commonly available.

    My experience over the past six weeks is as follows:
    Firstly you need a decent shreader to do this on any sort of scale, it takes time to shred but if you do this already its no great hardship. Shredding helps increase the density of the final paper log, which makes it burn longer and retain its shape post compression and drying.
    Secondly soak the mulch for 10 days, use warm water and keep stirring every day or so.
    The logs are really quick to make, you can compress them in around 30 seconds each.
    I reckon a single person would be able to make around 5 a week from waste paper and cardboard.
    Drying in the airing cupboard for three weeks didnt seem to be doing much. Far quicker was placing them in contact with the stove sides. Within around a week they were noticeably lighter and bone dry.
    Or so it appeared, I found it better to break one to check the moisture inside. Its more like two weeks to ensure its dry right through again in contact with the stove sides, or on top of the radiator.
    Other options are to leave them in a greenhouse or conservatory for three months over the summer which takes a lot longer. This would be ok for creating a stockpile.

    1 year on and 800 bricks made - photos available on request

    Our bricks are a composite of wood shavings and newspaper, well soaked and mashed before being pressed. This year we are using more newspaper and less shavings to make the pulp more compressible, and also these bricks seem to have a more dense and solid feel to them.

    We have performed only two modifications to the brickmaker:

    1) Adding padding to the handles to make the palm of the hands more comfortable during pressing.

    2) The addition of a metal strap to the underneath of the brickmaker, attached using rivets (see photos). This was necessary because after about 750 bricks, the sides of the brickmaker tended to 'part' during pressing, and the 'u' shaped cradle would fall through the bottom by approximately 5mm. The strap now stops the sides from parting.

    Quite a bit of corrosion has occured as you can see from the photos, but this has not been a problem, and we expect to be able to make many more bricks with the device this year. The corrosion may have been partly due to the fact that we originally added bleach to the pulp mix, however we realised after the first hundred or so bricks that this was no longer necessary.

    All in all, a great product - easy to use although some experimentation is necessary to obtain the optimum preperation of the paper pulp and shavings mix. We now add dry newsapaper and shavings, layer upon layer until a plastic dustbin is filled. We then add water using a hosepipe, and let the mix settle for a few hours. Afterwards, we reduce the contents of the dustbin to a pulp using a hollow metal pole.

    This seems to be the optimum process for us. Once again, well done for designing a super product, and I hope you find these photos and notes useful.
