I got sucked in... great idea except you have to soak and mush the paper, then stick it in the brick maker , make the brick then leave it to dry for about a bloody month to be dry all the way through and quite frankly it is easier to roll up a newspaper, screwit up a bit and chuck on the fire.

IMO huge effort for very little gain

Easier to roll the paper into long tubes and tie knots in it.

 Thanks guys , you just saved me $40. I knew that the idea was an old one because I can remenber my father talking about it. & in those days I think that they use to roll & soak  them in the washing tub.


 Now another question How does the dry rolled paper burn ? I got a new wood burnner.
 after all if rolled paper works well I'm in the right bussiness.

what I used to do in the early days - was rinse out a milk carton (the cardboard ones of course!!) and let it dry. Tear up newspaper and stuff them with it (good for kids to do) Then use the whole thing in the fire. If they are stuffed tightly - they are slow burning - which is great! I have a Kent and they were ideal in there! eek

Yes that is agood idea.

 I have found out in the old days yhat they would roll the newspaper up & soak them in water ,then dry them out , the newpaper would swell & go a little like wood.
