Making a Manual Fuel Briquette Press
Fuel briquettes are a very useful source of fuel for cooking and heating. They are made out of various bio-degradable materials. Such as dried leaves, sawdust, old paper and cardboard. Using fuel briquettes can substantially cut down on the need for firewood. This brief describes the process of making and using a simple low-pressure manual press for fuel briquette production. This press can also be used for other purposes, such as vegetable oil extraction. In this brief however we will concentrate on fuel briquette making only. The manual briquette press consists of a press base and a fuel briquette mold. The press base consists of the base itself, a pedestal and a press arm. The latter two are linked through a metal pivot pin.
