This Press makes a nice little block that measures 6" x 12" and is set for a specific thickness of 3 1/2" . The price for this press is $2000 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. $1700 if you pick it up here in San Ysidro

The blocks will need to dry for a day or so since the moisture content needs to be higher to get a decent compaction.

The 12 x 6 block design is a great block to build 12' or 18" thick walls.

as with all CEB block, you will need a minimum of 20% clay.

tip for the day. spray your pressfoot with pam periodically to minimize clay buildup and sticking.
