[papercreters] Re: Recipe spreadsheet - suggestions?

>early answers: cardboard - this was a standard packing box run
dry through a four-sheet shredder from WalMart. The shreds are
approximately 1/8" wide. Now that it's soaked for 25 1/2 hours,
I'll have to have maybe double the cardboard dry weight to make a
thick enough slurry. If I were making any quantity of this and not
trying to have completely standardized ingredients, I would either
soak the boxes first so that a blade mixer (NOT a kitchen blender)
could shred the cardboard. The other thing I would wonder about is
whether or not the dry boxes could be cut with some type of saw.

About A, B, and F: My very first block was newspaper; the second
magazine. So far, they are different in appearance and I suspect,
physical properties. Due to the clay content of the magazine paper,
the magblock is heavier and has a smoother finish. The newsblock
more "popcorn" in appearance, and lighter in color and weight.
Slurryguy has mentioned that the newsblocks should be slightly better
for insulation.
