The Liberal Lies Undermining America
In Order To Stop The Liberal-Engineered National Stagnation And Decline, Americans Desperately Need To Recognize Basic, Undeniable Truths And Return To Honest National Discourse

The Liberal Lies

In the USA it has become in a situation that we have been brainwashed all our lives by the banksters and gov as to how we procure our housing.
The socially accepted scenario is that we go to a realtor and worry about getting a loan, and a 30-40 year mortgage that most will never live to pay off. We will toil our lives to pay for a home that wil in essence with the bankers fees on top of every thing turn a 20,000 dollar order from a lumber yard into a 500,000 dollar transaction. Every month the bankers taking their interest.
We have been brainwashed since at least my time in school in the 80's and early 90's that the trades and making stuff was for losers. Shop rats and other assorted druggies, dropout wannabe, low IQ types take vocational courses. Smart kids go to college like their teachers and become good little corporate drones in a cubicle farm that eventually gets outsourced to the Philippines.
Meanwhile in other countries people with no cash are coming up with other methods to build stuff.
It used to be that compressed earth blocks were the domain of hippie dippy types and other assorted non producing trash, at least in the USA.
However a funny thing along the way happened. The Brazilians decided that clay fired bricks were too expensive to make even when the fuel to fire them was free with firewood.
So the CEB (compressed earth block) was adapted and processes refined to be used to create housing.
Basically a CEB machine can take the soil from the very ground the house will be built, combine it with some portland cement as a binder, compress it with a couple tons of pressure, and you got a building block. Combine that with making the blocks interlocking like a childs lego set and you got a building method that even the lowest skilled barefoot construction worker in the third world will be able to create something that does not look slapdash thrown together like the rest of the turd world.
What got me interested in this was years ago I was involved in the Open Source Ecology Civilization development kit. However with the brick making machine their solution was this big monstrosity of a machine that while nice, was totally un-affordable.
So me and another guy got together and researched into the thing and found what the Brazillians were doing. We found the original source documents from the 60's online.
Using solidworks CAD we drew new blueprints and released them as open source
Here they are:

To make the blocks I could re write a guide or I can send you to a Brazillian manufacturer of these machines to explain it better
Here are a few photos from the Brazillians.
Make it yourself. Do not pay the tax, finance the banksters.

Some are harder to figure out than others. I only wish I had the benefit of these diagrams when I started this adventure a couple years ago.
First of all we will start with the board.
You can build it on the Arduino UNO board. I just checked and the price for the original Ardunio (not China clone which I will explain why later) and it is $27USD delivered to my door here on the tropical island. That includes shipping, customs and overnight air freight.
Pretty basic stuff.
Next you need to flash the firmware on the thing.
Get the firmware here for the GRBL controller
You will have to follow the instructions to upload it but it is pretty simple.
Unzip the firmware folder and open the main file in Arduino. Do not worry about all the other files they will all open at the same time.
Here is the Arduino software
Arduino IDE that can be used with any Arduino board, including ...
Now you need to get something called a stepper driver. Actually 3 of them.
What the board does is send signals over 3 wires to the stepper driver that amplifies the power and drives a motor. The stepper motor is basically 2 DC motors inside one case. But right now you dont need to know much more than that. All you need to know is that there are 2 sets of wires. to each motor. The trick is to make sure that you are not wiring it up so one motor pushes against the other or it will not work.
Here is an example of a dead simple stepper motor driver.
Here is how you wire it up
On the other side of the board there are 4 wires. A+ A- B+ B- and power supply. For this driver you can use anywhere between 12 and 36 volts. I use 24v. 10 amp power supply at 24v is $30. Now you can hack an old laptop power supply like one of those 19v ones or 21v supplies and it will also work provided you can get enough amps out of it.
Now you got that done and your motors hooked up, here is the software:
And there you go. 2 years of study boiled down to one blog post.
Obviously you will have to read the info at the links provided.
Now you can build a precision machine and use that to make your own mischief and mayhem.
You should get the original Arduino instead of the Cheap China clones not because they are pirated. They are not cause Arduino is open source. It is because often times China boards use a counterfeit USB driver chip and the standard windows drivers will not work with it or will work one day and not the next. All to save a few cents for the original chip that is not open source.
