8" x 8" x 16" block machine

I'll be starting construction early next year. Having picked up dozens of cement-coloured sand blocks from different makers, only to have them crumble in my hands, and figuring that I will have a lot of time on those hands, I intend to get a machine and make them myself.... you know, like the ones back home, hit 'em with a hammer and they ring like a bell... then do the laying to a string line, and the rebarring and core-filling correctly.

Metric size 190 x 190 x 390 mm.

Who is most likely to have block moulds in this odd (for Philippines) size? Or perhaps finished their own construction and wanted to sell their blockmaker.

I thought Skyman had one. (Also built a wall) You will have to private message him.
