Lots of people use turf (peat) as fuel; cut from the bog and dried into logs.

Yeah, I thought peat was a standard fuel in Ireland and Scotland.

Not as common now, but hardly unknown.

IIRC, it's what makes Scotch taste so damn good, too.

Yes, you're absolutely corr. The malt is smoked over peat. It's one of my favorite flavours!

More like a wood burning fireplace. Nice and cozy but most people aren't dependent on them to heat their homes or cook anymore.

The first time I ever visited Ireland in around 1990 they used to generate electricity with the stuff.

Exactly.

I think this guy needs to come up with a way to heat things up to a couple hundred degrees Celsius while compacting them with his press. It might open up some new and interesting avenues of experimentation. Probably not a viable option if he does actual fabrication with that press and its not just a toy for making cool videos.

I didn't know there were peat bogs in Finland...

Exactly.  I don't think our favorite press team made a good analysis of their peat chunks' burnability.  They're *supposed* to burn slow and long, aren't they?

The compaction may do that by itself, like a "fire piston."
Maybe?

You'll have to post this again sometime, so we can have a repeat thread.

Peat is already perfectly suited to one thing:

His machining on his forms is an abomination and he should be ashamed.

Razor sharp edges are not how you do it.
