I am about to embark on a project of building a Gasifier. Has anyone already built one? Any hints, plans, suggestions, sources for materials, etc?

For those that don't know what a Gasifier is: they were used in WWII during the fuel shortage to power vehicles and tractors. The Gasifiers output 'wood gas' that any internal combustion engine can burn. A column of fuel (wood chips, charcoal, etc) slowly 'burns' and the Gasifier then collects this gas, filters the gas, cools the gas, then feeds it to the engine.

Hope to hear from some of you soon!

Hey Eric! So I have never attempted to build one since I have a healthy fear of superheated gas trapped inside metal containers, but I do have this neat book in my ebook collection :-)
