Build a Concrete Block Brick Maker
This plan is for a machine that makes concrete blocks and bricks.
That's right! 100 blocks per hour
. . . provided you have the help and
the space and racks to cure the
blocks properly. Above you see
the outfit complete, ready for work.
It's a self-contained unit mounted on
its own two-wheeled, pneumatic tired
trailer with a supporting
caster wheel under the drawbar.
There's nothing to take apart and
put together again when you move
the machine. Merely disconnect the
water hose and the power line, hitch
it to a truck, and away you go.
mix is scraped and troweled
into the molds, and then when full the mold is
vibrated by means of a foot-operated
take-off drive, and then
the excess material is struck off the
top with the fence or striker board.
Next, the crane is hooked to the
mold and the ejector is swung into
place. The mold is raised off the formed blocks, and finished blocks are moved to curing racks.
Much of the material in the plans can by made from salvaged car parts.
