Small (Micro) Biomass Fuel Briquette Presses made from Wood

Lee Hite, June, 2010

Measured Drawings are on his site: http://home.fuse.net/engineering/ewb_project.htm

As an alternative to the large compound lever briquette press, here is a small version (Micro Compound Lever Press) that will generate the same or more pressure to make a high quality briquette, is made from wood with hand tools and can produce briquettes at a rate of about 12 in 10 minutes. This would work well in a single family setting, as a classroom demonstration tool, or for any application requiring simplicity and a small footprint.

See demonstration for this press and two others at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mt0QQe6Eetw
