First of all gather together waste paper and cardboard, finely shred it and add some water. (At this stage you can add some sawdust or fine straw) Mix it into a pulp using our free mixing paddle, make sure the mix is broken down into fine particles the smaller the bit the better.
Open the briquette maker and pack in the pulp, pack it tightly with your hands, add pulp to the top of the basket. close the press aligning the head part of the press. Apply pressure to the leaver arm to expel all the water, which will automatically drain from the press.
Once you have completed the pressing process, raise the leaver arm and place the top pressure plate above and out of the way. Take hold of the briquette basket handle and lift upward and out of the press. Remove the briquette from the basket and set aside. You are now ready to make another briquette in the same way. When using our press the pulp won't leak through the bottom so no need to line the base (as is required in other forms of presses). The is also no need to cover the pressure arm with any protection as I won't hurt your hands, and maintains even pressure over the whole briquette.
If your country is not listed in our range of countries, you can still purchase a press, but you will need to contact us for a shipping quote. Use the customer services option.
