Brick Making Machine

Chinese Construction - Methods and Materials

14. Brick Making Machine

Here the one big brick has been cut into many standard size bricks and pushed onto the sanded board. Then the sander and the next person places the fresh new bricks onto a waiting motorized cart. It will then be driven to an area to be stacked loosely to dry in the sun. The returning carts will bring back the empty boards for use again. Note the 220-volt electrical line above the machine. Note also the cutter lady has a bucket of water to keep the slide slick for the bricks coming from the machine.
