I dont think my compost tea is working.
1st batch brewed for 4 days (didnt smell nice)
2nd batch brewed for 2 days ( mucus on air stone and compst bag)
My recipe is 30 l tank water
2 hand fulls worm compost
250g raw sugar

going on and some pure white shoots tring to find the light.

I have a few TWM items including a slasher for my tractor.
I am also waiting for one of their engines to fit onto
an old mulcher i picked up.

Hi Andre we stayed at millduck aswell to roadtest a strawbale house.
combine the blower with an old style laundry tub

I totally agree with kerrib:D
Nice solution ilike it:tup:
You can easily bluid a great forge out of cob.

I have made a hand crank blower out of the fan housing
of an old STIHL petrol blower and a gear box from an electric drill.
If you want ill put some pics of the blower:D
Love your design:clap: very bold.
Im also on the path to owner build a strawbale house.
(probly not as grand though):(
I know someone who built his SB house in the shape
