I would like to thank everyone who sent in information in answer to yesterdays post. As a result of that post, I would like to post the following link. http://www.home.fuse.net/engineering/ewb_project.htm It is to a site that has diagrams of different types of Biomass Presses, Chopper, Grinder & Formulations.
They are tied in with the Legacy Foundation at http://www.legacyfound.org/store/home.php. They say that anyone can make briquettes from their own leaves, grass and straw and junk mail. You can also use charcoal and peat if it is available. The press appears to be easy to make. We intend to make a press in the near future and experiment with different types of fuel briquettes. If you have any ideas or experience in this area let us know.
