cover photo

"Must-have" information for

Learn the secrets of distilling wood into charcoal and producer gas. Use the charcoal for cooking, heating, and smelting metal. Use the producer gas to power a lawnmower engine which, in turn, can generate electricity!

Intrepid tinkerer/experimenter, Richard Buxton, will show you how to produce clean, pure charcoal while generating electricity.

You may be able to adapt this simple, proven design to convert other organic material such as leaves, brush, and perhaps grain into producer gas.

You may want to scale the design up or experiment with another proven design from a hundred years ago.

You may be able to apply the lessons learned here to power an automobile with wood as it was done during past gasoline shortages.

This book will get you started.
