Hi again folks...........I recently fitted a multi fuel stove at home and I am happily burning all my offcuts and, I bought one of those paper briquette makers which works surprisingly well, however, Iv been experimenting with trying to find a way of making logs out of my thicnesser chippings but so far with no success, they just will not bind together! anyone got any experience of this or any ideas?

Steady on the addatives, you'll be burning potentially toxic chemicals on your own doorstep.
I think commercially they make pellets just with compression. The cells break down, releasing "juice" to bind it. You'll need a heck of a lot of presure though, start thinking hydraulics.
If its to get rid of your waste it might be worth it, but to keep you warm over the winter, big off cutts and well seasoned logs are the cheapest and easiest.

The best use for the shavings is as Kitty Litter. Its daft when you think we pay a lot of money for a Planer Thicknesser and what do we make with it Kitty Litter.
Great if you have House Cats. or know someone who does. They will love you for ever.
