#2010 CINVA RAM BLOCK PRESS- PLANS TO BUILD  $50.


THIS CINVA RAM MANUAL BRICK PRESS CREATS ONE EARTH ADOBE BLOCK AT A TIME.  THE PLANS FOR BUILDING THIS MACHINE   CAN BE PURCHASED ON THIS PAGE.
Taylor Publishing's Cinva Ram Plan Set is a detailed set of plans for making your own compressed earth block (CEB) press ...aka the Cinva Ram. The photo above is a Cinva Ram manual press made from these plans by Mike Gross, President of Terra-Block Inc., Orlando, Florida.

This press was developed and engineered in third world countries for manual use. Welding of parts is recommended as part of assembly, and mechanical expertise is necessary to build these block presses. (Be sure to read the Windward Sustainable Community Blog Building the Rammed Earth Brick Machinewhich is on the CD Guide included with the plans.)

The Cinva Ram Plan Set contains 30+ printed pages, including 11 detailed pages of plans on heavy cardstock.The plans are sold "as is," with dimensions shown in millimeters, not inches. You will need a CAD or other program if you want to convert millimeters to inches. No lengthy assembly description is given. But there is enough observable data from others who have built these manual rams to guide you.

 Included in the package is the Adobe & Cinva Ram Resource Guide on CD
with approximately 3,500+ pages of earth construction related information, plus FULL BOOKS on CEB block press use, brick making, resources, links, and PDF articles on all aspects of natural and alternative construction.    Information describes soil testing, mixing, additives, curing, plus adobe construction codes, and building with soil blocks.
