Hello, we are a team of engineering students at the University of Cincinnati working to develop a product that converts saw dust and scrap wood chips into burnable homogenous logs. In our search for woodworkers with similar issues, we have found this forum and we would appreciate your time and the completion of the following survey to better understand valuable design aspects.

More specifically, our product is meant for the home woodworker or small woodworking shop. As you may know, there are existing machines that can create pellets for large manufacturing operations to deal with dust waste. Our solution is targeted to be smaller, quiet, and more affordable than these solutions for woodworkers who do not need such scale and investment.

Below is a link to an online survey if you wish to help us develop this product, thank you again for your time.
