Re: [papercreters] Re: Papercrete and Extreme Couponing, the perfect partnership?



Bravo Charlene!  Actually for a while when we first move to Texas, I was getting coupons for cage free organic eggs, organic milk and a few things like that.  Not in the last 15 years though, unless they are given by the store.  HEB and Kroger both coupon healthier foods.

NOT knocking how you eat, but just going by your friendly coupon clipper lady and getting her leftovers for your papercrete may be the healthiest thing to do.

[papercreters] Re: Papercrete and Extreme Couponing, the perfect partnership?



Note that unless your paper/coupons are "fresh", many of the coupons might be be out of date by the time you can recover them from the waste stream and sort through them.


Note further that in rural areas, where papercrete can more easily be used for construction, there might not be an adequate number of stores to use the coupons.

Unfortunately the "extreme" coupon shows on TV gave couponing a bad rap and many stores really clamped down.  But the online competition is still fierce so price matching, with or without coupons, is another way to save. 

But again, a good coupon is just like money if it's for something you were planning on buying anyway.

[papercreters] Reciprocal roof going up.



Sorry for the late notice, but looks like the weather will be cooperating for the roof logs to go up on the house starting on Sunday. We still need to cut the rummies, figure out the charlie stick and put the scaffold up, but, most people want to learn that part. The logs will be ready to go on Sunday, January 17th, so we will be working on it. RSVP appreciated so I can make sure I have enough food. We don't start until 10AM, to let it warm up, no working with cold muscles. Garth and I will be working until this job is done, or it rains. But it looks like it could be Thursday before we get rained out, so the roof could be finished and a possible start on the patio. Strong muscles very welcome. https://reciprocalroof.wordpress.com/ will tell the story until now, we are about to write a new chapter. Email or pm to get directions etc.

[papercreters] Re: Papercrete and frost



to my knowledge NO cement/concrete work is done below 40 degrees for the reason Clyde mentions..delamination, spalling, cracking of new work like sidewalks, etc is a total waste of time and materials, money.  


..but with just 10% actual cement powder mixed into paper you COULD try making test batches INSIDE a garage, or other sheltered area.

I live in the wet PacNW…expecting large pours to dry and cure even in 'summer' is iffy and takes too long..so I began making lots of test bricks and "insertable" blocks made in cardboard boxes or self-made forms ( using bakery dry racks, etc)..., and let them start drying in the sun, covered by scrap glass…on a sun warmed driveway, or let them cure inside the big shed.

I did a wet pour between old redwood framing in my big studio…the  back wall was redwood…I tacked thin ply, or burlap/gauze cloth firmly over the studs..then cardboard..just until the wet mix dried up not to bulge out…pull off the cardboard, and the burlap allows drying to keep going. all windows and doors remain open to allow air thru..it still took a month to fully dry out…shrink a bit..more wet mix is  placed in gaps…or I just then used a clay-lime-sawdust plaster over the wall before doing a final coat of lime plaster.

I use a lot of free sawdust with my clay and paper..makes a great working material, not too wet, so not a traditional papercrete..but free, and no chopping/or motor mixer/grinder  needed with sawdust.

[papercreters] Tow-in mixer problem: water infiltration



Hello pcreters:


I´ve made a tow-in mixer following regular instructions... The problem is in the differencial we choose. First time we use, water went into the space under the blade, the very end of the differencial. (not at the bottom of the recipient)

Water make it through to the gears.

The videos and explanatios I saw never talks about these... maybe some diferentials are different than others and don´t need any modification? but mine does. Solve the problem seems a lot of work and money, change the differential now that everything is welded is hard too. 

Any advices? thanks a lot

Sergio

Thanks Clyde, it can get very cold here, so I better wait until March. Maybe I build something small first to see what happens
