wnettles: Some great suggestions here. Yall are thinking outside of the box to be
sure. I would add just a touch of potassium nitrate to the slurry, then,
press and let dry in the sun for a week or two. If pressed into much
smaller, thinner sticks, it makes an excellent fire starter stick and you
don't have to use but one or two to get a big fire started. Potassium
nitrate is commonly known as Saltpeter and can be purchased at almost any
pharmacy. Just a thought. You might have to experiment around with the
concentration, but, I find that a little will usually go a long way.

mhabdank: hey there-- just bought my kit! about how long does each brick burn? and i
assume you also need to get those firestarters or how do you set it alight?
thanks so much!
ckingclosur: let the paper in the bucket for 2 days then use the mixer and you will have
better results and no need for the sawdust
wraithbannon: where did you get the press
Paul Sneyd: I would like to know how the paper brick burned? and is the heat given off
Luca P: like the final bye of the kid
bhsbass: great father and son project!
Debbie Opes: how about a vid on "how to raise a sweet son?"
Johnny Torres: how long it takes to burn in its entirety?
TGANA TOPS: Wow!!! great idea subbed rated up and shared on Facebook.
MyAnjelGirl: Have you tried soaking the paper in water for 2-3 days and using 1/2 ratio
of paper mix to 1/2 sawdust?
Leah Rosenthal: Hi, I was wondering where you get your sawdust? We don't have any mills
around where I live.
delana phelps: What manuer did you use
JohnnyOnTheSpot: a bucket and lots of water and time... just let it soak
JohnnyOnTheSpot: I will make a short video once this batch of bricks / logs are dry and
ready to burn so people can see the finished product in action
parker jasmer: not being tude but why bid u guys throw the news paper in so messy like idk
why but it looks like u guys are mad at the paper
neonshoji: Cool video. It's cool to see your son eager to help out. Quick question
though; is that press you used specifically made for making paper bricks or
is there another more common use that'd be easier to search with.
Stewart Lunn: Looks good, Jonny snr and jnr. We're going to try to do the same over here
in Spain with all our shredded paper. Thanks for sharing.
daniel meidan: you can check it on papermasher website
daniel meidan: Papermasher™ bags are specially designed and used to safely dispose your
confidential documents without the time consuming effort it takes to use a
shredder machine. Simply fill the bags with your documents and place them
in your washing machine. The paper will be mashed to a pulp and become
unreadable. Remove and dispose the mashed paper and reuse the bags.
Randomyou101: You guys should wear gas masks or at least masks because you can get cancer
Suzanne Croteau: Thanks. We just got the 4-brick maker and are excited to get it going. How
do they burn (how long, how well)?
FeeFee:-): The kids and I made some today but instead of buying sawdust we swept up
the wood dust and chips off the floor of our wood shed. The instruction
sheet with our brick maker says to used dish washing liquid or washing
powder in the pulp to make it go soggy quicker and it seemed to work. We
didn't have anything electric to mix it with so the kids just gave it a
good stir with a pasta scoop spoon which did a good job but took a bit
longer. Looking forward to throwing our hard work on the fire!
JohnnyOnTheSpot: about the same size of a normal brick
l snoop: burns longer that's why.
David Jacobo: what did you tip in on amazon to look it up
daniel meidan: some ink might come off, but on most printed document it is not the case.
You can try to submerge documents in water and see.
daniel meidan: You can do all the shredding with the papermasher bag
PatDog949: Francis Ford BuzzKill Strikes Again! Good crap, Maynard!
stopandstare52: not sure why you need sawdust?
MsStanleycat: What an adorable boy! So handsome!
JohnnyOnTheSpot: try this... w w w . kotulas.com/deals/paper-log-maker
mchlbk: The water is polluted from ink. You shouldn't just pour it on the ground.
JohnnyOnTheSpot: He is quite the helper and always ready to get his hands dirty. And as far
as I know, no, that is the only intended purpose of the tool. However, once
you understand the concept of what this tool is doing, many different ideas
of how to make the bricks / logs will come to mind. The best part is that
we / people are reusing material that would normally be tossed out and
would make its way into local landfills, and that's awesome!
Suzanne Croteau: what is the "papermasher bag"?
JohnnyOnTheSpot: It smells pretty!
JessSuave: We got used coffee grounds from Starbucks and put those in. Talk about
smelling good! :)
Capn Clawhammer: An interesting belief that has sprung up due to a study on sawmill workers
and hobbyists. The study found that sawmill workers were at risk, and
hobbyists not, due mainly to the differing levels of exposure. Think about
it and I'm sure you'll understand why.
l snoop: what is the bar from the water mains in the US. sounds bloody powerful
neonshoji: Yeah, I started thinking of ways to make an improvised press after watching
your video, but the one you used just seems extremely convenient and the
size of the bricks seems like it'd be ideal. I've already used some
newsprint and certain paper scraps for composting and vermiculture, so
having another valuable use for recycled material is great. Anyway, again,
great vid. I look forward to your next.
l snoop: mdf is a really bad product as it is carcinogenic so don't have that in a
mix i reckon.
Bernard du Toit: Hi JonnyBuzzkill, like your video showing the complete process. I just
noticed you keep on interrupting jou Junior partner's efforts and
completing it for him. I'm sure if you ask him to fill the bucket to the
bring with mash he will understand and do that... nothing serious, I just
thought when I saw the beginning of the video that your son/partner is
going to be the actor and you the director ;) Cheers!
Jason Tieri: Any updates? How they burn, did they stay together?
