Default Compact Gasifier - wood-gas stove

Hey Guys,

I was over helping out at a friend's the other day. He has been working on a small gasifier stove.

The first two videos are ones he shot of the construction. The last video is what I shot the other day when some other people were over and we were test-firing it and measuring burn-time, fuel use, etc.

Essentially, the contraption burns wood chips with lots of heat, but little air to off-gas the voltatiles. Those then rise, where additional air is added to then burn that wood gas. It burns very clean on a small amount of fuel. Only charcoal is left over.
