http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mt...IXLwmuZUtLCKH64Bw0atg&index=2   This is the press that I ended up making ,the only difference is mine is of welded construction my reason for this is there is too much deflection in the wooden one as seen in the video.
 I have pressed  my first batch today and the have come out really well, the mixture is approx. 20% paper 80% clean sawdust it'll be a day or two before they are dry enough to do a burn test but when I do i'll report back.....................Magnet
