Recommended Posts

Not sure if I am in the right area to post this. If the moderator could move me if this isn't the right place

I would appreciate it <3

 

I am going to order this.

According to some of the reviews I have read some of the models are crap.

 

This one has great reviews.

 

I have a wood burning fireplace. I would like to start making these now out of the newspapers and waste paper I collect.

Any thoughts Negative and postive?

Sherrie,

 

I have been heating my house with wood for more than 30 years. I have tried several of these paper-into-logs devices. They have not worked that well in my opinion. There is evidence that one should not burn colored or coated paper in a fireplace. That considerably cuts down on what is left to burn to just b&w newspaper.

 

But, what do I know? :o

we have never ever been able to get newspaper logs to burn properly. I believe it is a waste of ones time to make them, based on the output of fire from that effort. Also, when we cleaned our wood burning stove and chimney pipes etc etc, after burning a weeks worth of newspaper logs with our wood logs, wenoticed a higher amount of yuk that came out. Yuk is anything from creosote to ..yuk. Also, our fireplace had the same problem. Now, if wood is scarce, we would augment our burns with newspaper. Lots of families around here have the same conclusion on newspaper logs.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
