Back in the day and just out of high school I built and used one of the MEN gasifiers. They were ok. I use charcoal today.

I finally got my little charcoal gasifier built and have a small generator running off of it. YUP, I'm a pretty happy camper right about now.

Thanks Don.
I have a ways to go with getting everything right on it, but just had to see it go for a confidence booster.
I posted the same video on "DrivingOnWood" and already got an idea on saving me from wrecking my pump.
As simple as it looks, it's definitely a learning opportunity.

Thanks Paul. Any time I've run across the gasification process I've always been curious. Then reading a few threads on here and going to the DOW site I figured I'd give it a shot and see what happens.
So basically I should be thanking you folks on here.
It's not near done and I'm planning on putting it on a spare riding mower that I have. We'll see what happens.
