From Richard Stanley Legacy Foundation to Steve Amodio in Burkina Faso on Presses December 14, 2006
Subject: response to your report on Burkina Faso...
This is in response to your email sent earlier, below in which several issues are presented.
Steve: We set out to build three pressed I had designed during our initial month of talks. We were grossly inefficient in
spending, but we produced three presses to try out in three villages.
Richard:The press you designed is clever. Thought I'd share a few other designs with you too.
1) A hinged base with a miniature ladder arrangement, the rungs of which provide a multi position pivot for the lever, from Mozambique Keith and Alberto of the SPARK association outside Maputo: Shown is Alberto with bqs in hand lever leaning against cylinder. with mini ladder welded on ot top end of cylinder. I think it hinges at base to open for briquette release.
