Tractor with gas?

Hey Tone, I was wondering how densely you packed your filter with wool, and if you washed the lanolin oil off of the wool?

My cousins have a couple of sheep and they’ve just been throwing away the wool, and they said they’d just give me what they shear off. I suspect I’ll have more than enough raw wool.

Hi Cody, I haven’t washed the sheep’s wool at all, because if it’s greasy, it binds dust particles even better, well, if I was short of wool, I could wash the dirty, already used wool and use it again. I cover the top of the wool with a cotton cloth, which I spray with an oil mist, I also spray the filter container with an oil mist, it works well against corrosion.

Hey Tone. What does the Kruster1972 on you video mean. If the 1972 is your birth year then I have two daughters older than you. Now I really feel old. Say it isn’t so. :pleading_face: :pleading_face:

Tom, if you have daughters older than me, you were really hardworking in your early youth (of course your wife too),… :grinning:

Not a lot of hard work involved Tone. Of course if I had a time machine I’m pretty sure I’d go back and get the snip job. :scream:

Tom, you don’t want to go back, think, with the good things come the hard ones, you’ve done and survived so far, I don’t want to go through all that anymore, this time that is now is the best for all of us, just don’t we can waste it. :+1:

330 hours on wood
Today I cleaned the gasifier, “regular service after 50 operating hours”, I turned it upside down and emptied the contents, you can see that there were quite a few minerals among the charcoal.


we talked about the weight of the gasifier, and I weighed it

a look inside, no damage so far

70 kilos, amazing job Tone. I knew it was light but not that light!

You looked good on Camera, it was nice to see your big bright smile, but I could see on the video, you and Fergie were running as fast as you could to get away from the camera. The things I noticed was it was actually quite beautiful countryside. You didn’t take the turn with the stop sign. And while in the middle of the intersection with the orange tractor, you weren’t paying attention to the road, you were trying to figure out how you were going to gasify it.
