How to make armour Ohio Travel Bag Specialty Hardware & Fittings for Luggage, Case, Handbag & Purses Haittalevy papercrete, fibercrete, fibrous concrete - Living in Paper If you are opposed to using Portland cement, you should try some experiments with paper and clay and with other binders (see Other Binders below). There are some interesting websites on the internet, which give some fascinating insights into "paperclay." What you need for fidobe (any fibrous material and earth with clay) or padobe (paper and earth with clay) is a fibrous material or paper, and earth with high clay content. The clay content of the earth should be at least 30 percent. If Portland cement in small amounts is acceptable to you, you might try ratios like 6:3:1 or 7:2:1 paper, earth, cement. In the above ratios, keep in mind that the paper should be pulped with water before the other ingredients are added. Before mixing the above ingredients, screen the rocks and small stones out of the earth.

Seven amazing marble machines by Paul Grundbacher Paul from Thurgau, Swizerland, sent me some pictures of his marble machines. Paul writes: There is nothing to do in the garden in winter, so I have time to tinker. Paul 1. This was my first try. This machine has since inspired Ryszard Grendato build his own version: Chaos2 2. The marble pump with piston and crankshaft is also copied from you (marble machine 1). 3. The flip-flop from your marble machines inspired me to build this machine. 4. I found the plans on the internet. 5. I copied this idea from Brad Litwin's Quadrapult. 6. Here too, I was inspired by a video: "the ball lifter" by YouTube user denha. 7. I started with five square posts attached to four glued wooden rings. More about the Archimedis machine: A shallow bowl sits at the bottom of the frame made of five vertical members. A "tube" made of dowels guides the marbles down to the upper Archimedes screw. The main drive shaft is in the middle of the tower, with a crank on either side. More of Paul's machines: More marble machines:

Bottle Reworking Link to Bottle Labels I consider bottle slumping to be one of the really boring activities in the world, but I will share some information about it since everyone who gets anywhere near a kiln seems to be interested in it for a while. The problem from my point of view is that unless one gets really creative, there are only a limited number of things one can do: stretch the bottle, flatten the bottle, make a spoon holder, make an ashtray. [Some people have made societal comment by arranging slumped bottle shapes in ways that suggest comment on mechanical and tired society - "Preacher and Choir", "Exhaustion", but that is more art than slumping, I think, and not me. 2002-07.] To change the form of a bottle all you need is an oven that can reach about 1400°F, which all pottery kilns and most glass annealers can do easily. If the kiln is tall enough, it is easy to stretch a bottle. The bottles at the right show the three styles of labels.
