Thomas Randall: Cool video. I would suggest pressing the bricks over something to catch the water so you can reuse it. Just a thought.
Logan Hertz: Like the vid can you show how to make a paper brick (folded)
D Costello: What's the dry time for you? I just ordered the same one today. Got on amazon for $30 with free shipping. Almost bought the 4 in 1 press, but a lot of reviews say its pretty hard to press. That single looked easy when you did it. I was using a caulking gun with hole drilled pvc pipe.. Really time consuming and hard to get paper logs out the tube without breaking in half. I am still on trial and error with sawdust/paper mix, but I found using about one sunday paper and a loosely filled one gallon bucket of sawdust works well. Local lumber mill let me fill a 42 gallon contractor bag for free.
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!
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.
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
Arcshane: Father son time what can be better
Luca P: like the final bye of the kid
wraithbannon: where did you get the press
TGANA TOPS: Wow!!! great idea subbed rated up and shared on Facebook.
Paul Sneyd: I would like to know how the paper brick burned? and is the heat given off good?
Debbie Lopes: how about a vid on "how to raise a sweet son?"
Leah Rosenthal: Hi, I was wondering where you get your sawdust? We don't have any mills around where I live.
bhsbass: great father and son project!
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?
Johnny Torres: how long it takes to burn in its entirety?
delana phelps: What manuer did you use
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.
mchlbk: The water is polluted from ink. You shouldn't just pour it on the ground.
