This online training, which currently consists of the three modules below, is optional but strongly recommended. It is designed to supplement the mandatory training required of all personnel involved in testing. Due to space limitations, district testing coordinators and technology coordinators who want to participate must register to attend these trainings. Space is limited to the first registrants for each training session.
You will not need two lids. The first thing you will need to do to create your paper Paper buckets fire brick is to turn one of the buckets into a giant strainer. To do that you will need to drill a bunch of holes. For the bottom of the bucket I created a pie cross section grid work. Near the center of the bottom of the bucket, drilling at every intersection would leave a weak spot so I only drilled at every other intersection for the innermost rings, then drilled at every intersection for the remaining rings.
With all the holes drilled, the work of creating the buckets is done. The strainer bucket will nest inside the second bucket. Fill it with water and place your random paper products in the water to soak. You will need to allow the paper products to soak for approximately 24 hours.
The original recommended method of shredding the paper.
To finish creating your paper fire log you will need to shred the soggy paper. This is where the saw blade and all thread rod come into play I will explain how to get around using this in a moment. I placed a nut, lock washer, and fender washer on the all thread rod, Paper buckets the saw blade on the rod, and then placed another washer, lock washer, and nut to hold the saw blade in place.
It could be dangerous you have a saw blade spinning on the end of a rod from a drill The blade could potentially come off The blade hits the sides of the bucket and gouges the plastic It can be awkward to control It can make a huge mess as it starts to create a whirlpool in the bucket slinging water and paper pulp over the sides.
This is how I ended up wearing a LOT of paper pulp on my legs, boots, and even some on my face. While it is good for creating comedy for those around you, it is a bit of a pain to clean up. I can not over-emphasize the danger factor of this method which is the original method recommended according to my friend.
It would be easy to lose control of the blade and end up badly hurt. As a result of the safety factor I believe I have a solution. If you have a paper shredder you could simply shred the paper before putting it in the water bucket.
You would then follow the same directions, allowing the paper to soak. What to do with the soaked paper. Now that the shredded paper has set in the water for 24 hrs or you have soaked the paper and then shredded it you simply need to drain the water off. Lift the strainer bucket out of the holding bucket and allow the water to drain out.
Once the water draining slows, set the strainer bucket somewhere that it will be ok to make a mess and place the holding bucket full of water on top of the wet paper pulp.
This will allow the pulp to compress. I left mine to compress for another 24 hrs and, to create a tighter compression, I placed a second full 5 gallon bucket of water on top of the first. This means that you have approximately 80 lbs of pressure compressing the pulp.
Some of the pulp may squeeze out of the holes but pulp loss should be fairly minimal. Now that the pulp is compressed.
Locate a good place to allow the brick to dry. A sunny location is best as it will allow the brick to dry better. Temperature and ambient humidity will affect the drying time of the bricks.
Once they are dried they should be solid enough to easily move and stack in a dry location to be burned in your fireplace to supplement your wood burning. A few tips I have learned.
When making my first brick I loaded the bucket with far to much paper. I left stacks of paper bunched together so when it came time to shred and blend the paper the blade would catch on clumps to heavy to shred.Double-Wrapped Paper Buckets have a sturdy, grease-resistant design for longer lasting durability.

The first thing you will need to do to create your paper pulp fire brick is to turn one of the buckets into a giant strainer. To do that you will need to drill a bunch of holes. These favor buckets are ideal for filling with wrapped candies or gifts to hand out as favors during holiday parties, office events, wedding receptions or even during casual get-togethers with family and friends/5(58).
