  • Power in the Apocalypse (How to build a Wood-Gasifier)

    Hi Tatebullrider, I enjoyed your instructable. I have a few comments. It is important to get the tar and other condensate stuff out of the gas stream before it gets to the filter. So cooling the gas does that and if it is a separate section, it can be cleaned out by just a pull through(?) The tar & stuff could clog an engines innards, not to mention any dust in the gas. Your filter looks like it would get the dust OK. keep up the good work. If you wanted to burn larger pieces of wood it might be necessary to have a tapered fire tube so that nothing could be caught in a corner. I made a similar burner for heating out of bricks and the pieces of wood all slid down to the hot zone readily. However I had problems with controlling the rate of burn, but the engine would control that.Regar...see more »Hi Tatebullrider, I enjoyed your instructable. I have a few comments.
