    Efficient way to make charcoal

    Exactly Jeremy ! And I think it would be a pain to make a grill to withstand 1.8 m3 wood ontop..

    What did you do in your shop today?

    Burned out the wax from the ring mold ^^ next stop gold pouring

    The ultimate anvil.

    I like the concept - but how will it hold up to working ?

    Efficient way to make charcoal

    Okay, I'm about to cut my big fuel tank and convert it into a retort - but now im thinking : Should I install a grill in the bottom of it ? for easier passages of gasses through the woodmass ?

    Time to build a power hammer WIP

    Still building had some small hickups, just need to weld the frame, mount the electric motor and ram guide

    Shop clean-up day ^^ always feel good after a day of putting stuff on shelves, and removed 500 litres of water from the shop floor -.- basement with poor draining around.. besides that I set my lost wax mold for drying ^^ take three at the one ounce gold ring

    That is kind of how mine works yes the inlet is 8" above ground and the chimney exit at 3 meters above ground.

    Vern - The air does make a little ash of the coal in the end, maybe in the beginning of each run you could use a blover (that's what I do to promote draft through the chimney, before the gasses are hot enough to rise on their own) but other than that no. A question strikes me : How would you go around forcing the wood gasses into the combustion chamber ? Just closing off the chimney and use the combustion chamber opening as a vent / air intake ?

    Got my new wax carving pen ^^ and finished the wax mold for the giant gold ring - next stop slurry casting. And I got my belt grinder welded back together ^^

    Well I haven't found the dragging new air into the charcoal chamber to be a problem quite the opposit, it purges the combustable gasses from it and speeds up the proces at the end. My argument for building the combustion chamber on the side vs. underneath the charcoal chamber, is mainly my heigh limitations - my production-apparatus lies behind a dirt mound, and I don't want it to rise above the dirt ;).. The russian ? example seems really nice - just a bit out of my comfort zone with the collection of wood vinegar. and I believe it is a monster of a retort he is running . The bamboo kiln is more like my style ^^

    Sounds nice ofcourse : I only have my own working plans, I' do my best at explaning The other plan is my way of cladding the entire retort in Kaowool or Rockwool and the putting a wooden/sheet metal shell around that (to avoid moisture)

    A bit yes Jeremy but over here they usually are more oblong shaped when less than 2000 litres. How big is the tank ? My project is onhold at the moment, I need to pickup som dry ice for purging before cutting it open. And my combustion chamber needs some smaller adjustments.

    Would you buy this anvil?

    That is one nice anvil Over here that would go for around 1000 $

    Pictures are comming Piet yeah - you probly could forge a bracelet with that amount but I got tired of fooling around with small rings, and they were hard to get to the right level of "roughness" that I wanted.
