YAY! This is a great product to be used by eco-savvy consumers and recyclers everywhere. Plus it saves money while reusing paper normally going to be thrown away. It compresses down pretty good, wish they thought of a foot operated version instead. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 was due to the latching bars to compress the brick of paper were kinda awkward and heavy pushing for the arms. But the overall impact for making solid paper bricks works great. I've even used some of the advertisements and coupon glossy pages with success and not just newspaper. I like to save newspaper for easy weedblock and mulch around my plants. I know burning the glossy paper is more toxic than newspaper but with a woodburning stove and not using kerosene soaked kindling and extra wood, it saves money and other resources.

The briquet maker was just so-so-
while looking at it you can probably guess that you need to use water to stuff the paper into the maker, we didn't know that in advance.
You end up making quite a mess with the ink and all from the paper. Once dried, the briquets don't stay together well. If you are looking for crumpled paper to start a fire, this will do the trick after you let them dry, of course.
Wouldn't recommend to a friend-

Ok, however you must use newspaper. And it is hard to lite sometimes

I bought it to make logs of non newspaper material such as bank statements. It does not seem to work well. Logs tend to break apart, take a long time to dry and the unit bent after a few uses. Have yet to try to burn the logs. Really seems like way too much effort for the result. Also the shipping and handling were very high. Be sure to check. Not too sure of how these logs would do wrt cresol in the chimney. I plan to burn in a portable unit.
