Getting material together to build a gasifier (wood fuel)

Look into it. ;)
Maverick,

Here are the two PDF's that I have on a gasifier and if I remember right, sounds like if I remember one of those survivor shows my son use to watch, a guy built one. If they don't download, try the How to Forum...I put them in there too.

Good luck, if you do build one..can you video tape it or get pictures...thanks

The fema version is ok but with problems so I'm looking to modify the fema, I seen the wood gasifiers used for generators years ago, because of the efficiency I'm also looking into it as a heat source for the cabin given that no smoke is put out as not to attract attention

just out of quriosity,did a quick check on a Finnish website,they are planning a gasifier for small houses to provide energy for it and this jack of all trades have driven a car with this technique over 120000km,no repairs to the engine the whole time,secret is higher temp when burning so the machine will not clogg from tar

no, I haven't really searched a great deal on the internet yet, tar has been the pit fall of the fema design from what I gathered
