    Eric,

    I somehow got my login info screwed up and had to re-register. So...........hello again

    I have done some research since 2005 on gasification as it relates to homeheating applications, and have a list of links that would be helpful to any readers that are interested in the technical side of gasification and there is also a link to Dan Holohan's site heatinghelp for a free pdf called "modern heating" it is a incredible read, again for the technical side of things and has some great engineering tables in the back as well.

    Well heck, welcome to the Boiler Room again, Colin. Have things quieted down in NH over the past 24 hours?

    I think Dan Holohan is great. I'm a Wallie who mostly lurks, though I will on occasion embarrass myself with a post or two on The Wall. Love the installation photos.

    Thanks for the links. I've seen some of them. I'll give them a lookover and post any comments or questions.

    I've posted a link to this thread in our "Resources" sticky. Really neat stuff--thanks. Say, is the paper by Richard Hill describing what was to become the Jetstream? One of our members, slowzuki, has three of them running on his farm.
