The Eco Store in Greystones normally stock them and can do nationwide delivery.

Although three months later I'm still waiting for mine to dry out! LOL!

At least the delivery is only 2.99 I'm toying with the idea of getting one.

We got one from ebay, and they are great you can mix the paper with sawbust, turf dust cardboard anything that is bio-degradable

what we do is shred the paper and place in a large bucket filled with water and leave to pulp for about a week or 2, the you can mix it with whatever( we found sawdust to be the best, burns for longer), then place in the machine and squeeze out the water, leave to dry completely
they are real easy to make and great for lighting the stove, think we paid abput 19 for it inc delivery they are based up north...here is the phone number if its any use to you 0766020244, 08458689170

I bought one of these in the local DIY store. Cost was E18.99. Takes a lot of paper and a lot of time to make paper logs. They take ages to dry out and burn time is about 2 hours according to the instructions. We made 2 paper logs and still haven't burnt them.

Probably the idea is to make and store 'em over spring/summer/winter and then burn 'em in winter. I watched a youtube video which I found via JT and was impressed until I saw how much strength the guy used to press the mixture down. My wrists, elbows, back, hip, knees and ankles would definitely not be up to the task!!:)
