3. Large cement vat for mixing earth and sand

daytime crew consists of 3 persons handling earth mixing and 2 persons on each press = 7 total
the capacity of the pug mill exceeds that of the 2 pressed so often stands idle
question from Jeremy as to why the excess capacity of te pug mill was not being used to service other households in the village - response from soebekti and suhip was that they plan to do this in the near future
project is only 3 months in operation (hence machinery prices quoted above 


are pretty current)
- Own trademark MGN (Mrangen)((MRN?)) 4 men working the tile presses can turn out 1200 tiles a day

in the evening hrs, 7:00 - 11:00pm, the presses worked by 1 man each
1 man working alone, they claim, can do 250 tiles
hence combined production of both presses is 1700 tiles a day

mix used is 3 pickuls of sand to 20 pickuls of earth

no info collected on profit - sharing arrangements on how persons get priverlege of working on project

price of tiles has gone up this yr. - pressed tiles now sell for +/- 40 Rp each and brasa flam for 15 - 20 Rp
