* If I used it as per instructions and compressed with all my strength, I did not have the strength to push the log out of the tube. The solution I found was not to fill it as much -- four double broadsheets gives about the right fill, so that the force required to eject is about the same as the force of compression.
* Be very careful when ejecting the log and ensure that no part of your hand can get caught between the tube and the plunger -- my second log left me with a 1cm diameter blood-blister! Subsequently OK -- once bitten, etc.
* It says that the logs burn for "up to" 30 mins -- expect about half that unless the fire is damped right down.
* The paper logs produce much more ash than wood or eco-logs.
* We have decided that the best use for these paper logs is as kindling/firelighters -- one log, on top of a scrunched up sheet of newspaper, is sufficient to light our woodburner.
Edit, 22 April 2009: I have found that the best "fill" is paper from the shredder. For some reason it can compress down very tight without jamming.
Oh yeah and it burns very well too !
He was well pleased and spent the next 2-3 hours in front of the TV producing several bags of logs.
Quicker,less messy than briquette maker (these take weeks to dry)and comparable end product. Entertaining the grandson was a bonus.
The logs are easy to make using J.Bas's advice and you can use the logs straight away. You could possibly hurt yourself with this if you don't take the basic care with any operation using a device. Some people will manage to hurt themselves with a hammer or screwdriver. This log maker is inherently safe.
I don't see the point of using a 'wet' method of making logs when this piece of equipment is available. Yes, the paper logs from this might not burn for as long as some those made by other methods but no matter how you burn a newspaper it will only have the same calorific value (amount of heat it will give) and always produce the same amount of ash. Why bother with a messy alternative?
This method allows the paper to 'Give' a little as you remove it and even well compressed paper can be pushed out without too much effort.

Read the instructions carefully - this is ideal for the last-minute making of firelighters, as opposed to the ones that you have to soak with water and then dry out. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Shane Howard
