Here is Erik Werner is showing his truck and a short ride.

Their trucks do have a good aesthetic when it’s built sidesaddle like the WW2 rigs.

I wonder what is the name of the narrow rectangular tubing he uses for radiators, if that’s an original gas cooler or if he made it.

For those who had previously been talking about S.E. Werners CO boosting claims . . . at one point he does show the guts of his Hot-Char . . . . whachamacallit. “Ember Catcher”? “Ember Potentialize”?
It must run Hot. He shows percolating coffee on top of the can lid.
He shows the needed level of char dust. The fine-ness of that char-dust.

And later at 32-33 minutes, he has something to say with “W.K.” in his statements.

All I could hear was “mr wayne keith I’m sure you’ve heard about him”.

Is he on bad terms with the forum?

No CodyT.
Werner is respected on this Forum.
I’ve for years given out photocopies of his all-weld-up from Tanks system.

Many fellows choose not to Forums participate. And that’s O.K. Forums can be a bit, rough and tumble. Forums will always have someone, or ones asking for detailed explanations. Sometimes someone, or ones will demand math’s proofs.
Gotta’ have thick-skins, hard-toes to Forums endure.

Other fellows have a self-found/developed system special sub-feature that they believe in:
Jim Masons Hottotti; Ben Petersons Pyrolysis Accelerator; Wayne Kieths DropBox-HeatExchanger.

I see Werner as making his system from old commercial systems saved and restored parts and his own made bridging pieces.
Ha! Real nice to see a modern video of a full system hearth maintenance. Watch his tools use. The old-timer’s evolved to liking it Big, Robust and Simple.

I know I put up more videos than I should, but I realised I haven’t yet put one up on this thread. So, I took the oppertunity to turn the camera on for a while today - again :innocent:
The second video shows a little bit of how I pullstart the gasifier after sitting for a short while. It occured to me we may do that somewhat differently. It would be interesting to see how others go about.

Thanks for the ride JO, I see you’re much better than me at understanding the gasifier,

Other then the fuel injection part, very similar to him I have figure out how to do it, as long as I’m moving and in gear I can suck start the gassifier pretty easily and also how I get gas up to the motor in the mornings. Short enough shutdown I can fire back up on wood no problem but have to keep the rpms up for that little lag in fuel production. Have to do a video on that now I think about it, little harder I think with the carburetor and fuel pump giving such a delay in dino juice delivery. Thanks for the ride!

Thanks JO for the ride. THe trees are all so white it looks like a winter wonder land ---- as much as “winter” can be a wonderland. TomC

One way to appreciate winter is to spend a summer In Tampa Fla. I grew much fonder of winter after that.

Here is a great ride at Argos Wood Gas Meet Up with Wayne and Koen. He used his 360° camera.

Move it around with your fingers on the screen.
