Gary Gilmore’s 2-barrel system can be built with two smaller sized containers. metal 5 gallon buckets or even 1 gallon bean cans. I like that system better than the t-lud for char production. Nothing against the t-lud, we teach a version of the t-lud also…as a cook stove for refugee camps. Just another option that is good if you are looking for a char production method…it is a good one to try.
I am interested to see what you come up with. I am planning to steel Jakob’s walk behind tractor charcoal project if I have time and health enough to do it before I go to africa this year. I ordered a cooking pot with a glass lid this week to use as the gasifier tank. I hope to be able to demonstrate the gasification process visually through the lid, assuming it doesn’t just smoke up like a glass fire place door. It shouldn’t on char alone.
I’ll stick that in the charcoal projects section if Jake doesn’t already have a thread there.
Anyway, glad to see another young guy with interest like yours…Keep it up. Billy
Sorry, just realized this is supposed to be an Argos Planning thread. Sometimes these things are like letting youtube run overnight. You never know what you will wake up to.
We could stand to do something a little later. Maybe in the mid or late June. But like I said, it all works for us.
