Briquette Making - Stop Block and Push Block

The mold mentioned in a previous entry uses a standard PVC pipe with an inside diameter of 2 inches. This mold casing is the chamber where the compression of the briquette material takes place. But by itself, the PVC pipe has two open ends. The Stop Block and Push Block plug these two open ends.

Stop Block

The Stop Block plugs the rear of the mold. It remains stationary inside the PVC pipe through out the compression process as the Push Block pushes the briquette material. The Stop Block, in turn, presses against the C-Clamp Pad.

Shown below is a magnified view of the front of the Stop Block. This is the face of the Stop Block where the briquette material pushes against.
