Honda Clone; fueled by producer-gas

Conversion of a 6.5hp single cylinder Honda clone engine to producer-gas. Timing was advanced and a carburetor was fabricated. These are affordable engines popular with go-cart racers thus there is a pool of performance techniques easily available to tap.

This is the second year that the "Woodgas Meet and Greet" was held in Argos Indiana. With the water tower (Photo 5) acting as a beacon attracting people from across the country to share their knowledge, experience and question with each other. It's easy to say that it was a total success and the Argos Fairgrounds was the perfect setting.

Thermo-Biopile

Thermo-Biopile

A compost or possibly a humus pile was constructed to explore the possibilities of utilizing the heat generated from this process to heat a building. The building was a work shop that needed to be kept above freezing temperature or higher during late fall and winter. It did work to some degree but further work needs to be done. With the first version there was a problem separating the water pipes from the compost/humus at the end of it's life cycle.

Gas-of-Fire 1000 Update #1

The cyclone filter did not turn out the way I had planned. All I'll say is that when one plans on welding an old pot to the bottom of the cyclone filter (in order to provide room for the ash) make sure the pot is not an aluminum pot! You can see the test setup in picture 4.

Abstract: An exploration of a large scale Top Lite Up Draft (TLUD), fabricated from a recycled hot water tank heater.

Here, Mr Charcoal is running on loose switchgrass.

This is at the end of the switchgrass burn. I wanted to show the charcoal but it did not show up in the picture.
