Introduction: Pallet Saw Dust Fire Log
Hy everyone, today after some news projects with pallet I recovered a lot of saw dust.
I will teach you how use it to warm you in winter.
I Europe we are lucky, we using "EPAL" pallet there is no pesticide just a heat treatment.
Remember, energy is our future, save it. And when it's free it's better ^^
Step 1: Materials
Really easy :
- Saw dust
- Toilet paper roll or other paper roll
- Flour (optional)
- Recycled paper (improvement)
Step 2: Build It
Mix saw dust and a little of water in a container, if you had to much water don't worry, add more saw dust or flour.
My mixture is 6 unit of saw dust with 1 unit of water and 1 cc of flour.
Next push some mixture in the paper roll and use grip of hammer to compress all, if the mixture is good, there should not be any water coming out.
Step 3: Dry It
Then put it in the sun to dry it, when everything is hard, it's perfect for burning.
As you can see, I made several and so far everything goes well and for 0€.
I have some ideas to improve all this as also use recycled paper. I prepare a small machine to do all this more quickly with a silicone gun, but this is for the next instructable.
Don't forget it's better when it's free ^^
Step 4: Improvement
If you have recycled paper , you can mix it with sawdust if you have previously cut into small pieces.
As the cardboard but it will take longer let macerate.
