Reader's Exchange: Can you help her make newspaper logs for the fireplace?

The past few chilly nights have people trying to keep warm! Marie Bishop is looking to build a fire in her fireplace. Years ago she made fireplace logs from newspapers using a unit that helped press the papers into a tight form. Now Marie is hoping to find one of those units, and she wonders if anyone either has one or knows where to get one. If you can help, please contact Marie via email at meeh@tampabay.rr.com.
