The EarthTek Cinva Ram

Cinva ram

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 $1800 shipped anywhere in the lower 48. $1500 if you pick it up here in San Ysidro

I can build this Ram to make a 4" thick block for an additional $100.00

I am also considering offering this in a 4" x 8" x 12" as well as a 3 1/2" x 10" x 14" to match a traditional adobe, both will be considerably larger and heavier but the latter will be even more so. it may be better to just trailer mount it and power it with an engine and hydraulic system. lol

If you're interested let me know, I will build the first one as a manual hydraulic machine like the blm 12-8mb for $8500.00  (it will be a vertical press)

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

this 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.
