Concrete Block Machine
The making of concrete blocks is a lucrative business as it has great profits. Most structures today, from skyscrapers and high rise buildings to playgrounds and backyards are using cement blocks for one or more parts of the building process, and so a concrete block machine could be used to sell concrete blocks to building trades everywhere.
A part time business can be started right in your own garage making concrete blocks using hand molds. There are instructions and plans that can be readily bought for this purpose. The molds can be made by hand using sheet metal and plywood and filling them with the right mix of concrete. The blocks can then be turned out of the mold and they need to be dried before being sold.
As this goes on, however, you will find that there will be a high demand for the blocks and that you are unable to meet them at the rate you would like to. This is the point at which your part time business might turn into a full time living, and where a concrete block machine will come in handy because you will be able to use it to make concrete blocks in larger quantities.
A concrete block machine can be bought from several different makers. A lot of them are manufactured abroad and the machines are quite expensive. If you can afford it, you can go ahead and buy one, but they will be well worth the money you spent for it because the highly increased rate of production will pay you back the money you spent. There is, however, an even better way to achieve this increased production, and that is by building your own concrete block machine.
It is not extremely difficult to build your own concrete block machine. You can buy the plans along with the complete instructions and they will give you the instructions to build your own concrete block machine, which can produce up to 800 concrete blocks in one day. The machine is made of used or new auto parts, sheet metal and a few other parts. The concrete block machine is made for much less than the one you can buy and will perform just as well as a commercial machine.
Another option is tobuild a hand operated concrete block machine. The only disadvantage to this is that it will make only 200 concrete blocks a day. This is still a significant amount of production and it is also easy to build and run.
