I work a little, in my free time, to gasify my new pickup toyota.
J 'hope to finish this project for the next spring. I would open a new page as soon as I have some developments and photos
PS.Enjoy your stay in Argos, Jan and Kristijan.
I sort of agree with TomC, there’s not enough DOW on DOW these days. So, I turned the camera on going in to town today.
Apart from having trouble keeping the hopper juice liquid enough to empty it, the gasifier seems handle the -15C just fine.
No snow yet but the cold did a good job squeezing the moisture outof the air. Looks like it all ended up in the trees.
Thanks for the ride JO !
Hi JO, even if you didn’t speak one word, it was a beautiful drive with you this morning. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I notice the large piles of trees along the side of the road. There is so much growth that has to be cut down. Is it just cut down for fire wood?
The only draw back to those VFD is they will not go to zero volts. They require an on-off switch.
Sawlogs and pulpwood are probably already collected. The thin stuff will stay put until needed during winter for chips in local district heating facilities. It’s mostly spruce and pine.
Most people prefere species with leaves on for firewood.
Southern Europe protects a great deal of their forests for enviromental reasons. Different approach up here. We like to think we can keep both enviroment and economy happy.
2/3 of our country are forests. We’ve pushed forestry pretty hard for a long time and still the volume of growing trees doubled in 100 years. Forestry (and steel) has been the fundation of our economy for hundreds of years and if only EU allows us to continue doing it our way it will stay that way in the future.
