    Colour Name: Briquette Maker Verified Purchase
    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.

    Eko-Mania Paper Log Maker - Green
    I bought the Eko-Mania Paper Log Maker so that I could do my bit for the environment and recycle my own paper waste into useful bricks for burning on our Chimenera in the garden during summer evenings. I've learnt a few things doing this!

    First of all I tear all of our newspapers into 1" strips down the full length of the newspaper. This goes directly into an old plastic dustbin we were no longer using since wheelie bins came along. Forget using a bucket - not enough space. The papers get shredded daily as it's a boring task to do if you are thinking of doing a weeks worth of newspapers all in one go. Occasionally, all of our personal shredded material is also added into the dustbin.

    I only add water into the dustbin to soak the newspapers once per week and then leave the lot to soak for 3 days. During this time, I turn the paper using a garden fork. By sticking the fork in and twisting it around, it also helps to break down the paper into smaller bits turning it into more of a pulp. I do this daily.

    Initially, I think I might have been adding too much water into the dustbin and I've learnt not to completely cover the newspapers in water. If you think about it - the more water you've added to the newspaper - the more you have to squeeze out using the Eko press.

    I also found out that when using the Eko press, I make my bricks in 2 or 3 stages. I put just enough pulp in the Eko and squeeze out all the water that I can. I keep repeating this process until I have a full sized brick formed from the pulp. I usually find that a weeks worth of newspapers (including Sundays) will make me around 6 bricks.

    This piece of kit is an an absolute blast. I turn wood. If you are loaded then go to Axminster Tools where they have a £12,000+ machine to make logs out of your dust and shavings. If you are an average bloke like me then give this little gizzmo a go.

    Soak your NEWSPAPER and twirl it every day. A Plaster mixer on a drill is a good way to keep the pulp more liquid. Once you are happy with the mix throw in your shavings. 1 part pulp to 2 parts shavings well stirred means the binding agent, the pulp, gets in amongst it.

    Press bloomin' hard on your log maker and drain each time you press. No more bubbles? You are done.

    Take out your brick and leave it safe and snug in a warm place.

    Now, do not expect these bricks to be as efficient as the machine compressed ones or mother nature's logs...but

    ...You can seriously throw one of these bricks in every other 2 or 3 logs to help with your fuel costs.

    I help this helps.

    Colour Name: Briquette Maker
    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.
