Just trying to find that video of the charcoal kiln Mr mustache built using Old farm equipment where the wood came out with a ring how do I find that?
I think the two threads below are what you are looking for:
Mercedes is hungry for black gold and my greenhouse stove and the oildrum kiln are unable to feed it so l decided its time to boost charcoal production.
Meet my new kiln, named “the Kursk”.
This was a 2000l heating oil tank. I cut two lids out of it, welded in the heating chimneys, insulated and burryed in the ground at the edge of a hill, for easy emptying
Finaly l got some time to get back to woodgas, and it all starts with fuel prepp!
Last year l bought this 3m3 tractor cistern. Now its time to make it do some real work!
Started today by clearing the spot. Got lumber in order and cleared the old insulation l got for free at some company. Beer break then l hope to get someonehelping me load the thing on the tractor trailor so that l canbring it to the wealder.
Does hard or soft charcoal have an advantage over the other? I thought the useable gas created was dorected to the sh$t fire for the charcoal production.So the final product was smokeless carbon.So how does this power these contraptions?
