    Well, here is one of my only attempts at screen writing!

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=110585530348764525&hl=en

    I wrote, produced and star in this video from about 1992 - some funny lines in there, and it's also educational. If you watch it, let me know what you think the best part is.....

    Swinging the sledgehammer was a classic, as is the old Vigilant.....

    The only thing missing was the obligatory banjo music.

    Famous lines:
    I'm convinced
    Try THAT with a pellet or wood stove, chuckle - chuckle
    Wow, didn't even dent it!
    I can't put a bead like that with a caulk gun, let alone a welder....
    Wow, Tarms everywhere!
    Gosh, I love a wood burning fire....

    classic lines, one and all.

    Thankya Craig, I was curious how those worked.

    When you burn the wood, where do the ashes go? It looks like the smoke is forced right down through the ashes. Do you have to take these beasts down every once in a while to clean the ashes out or is there an ash drawer I'm missing somewhere?

    Kenny Rogers? I thought that was Grizzly Adams!

    I still think he should have tossed the cig into the Tarm, instead of stashing it back in his pocket. Unless, of course, that wasn't a conventional cigarette.

    Craig's classic fear-mongering sales pitch: "We're running out of trees!"

    I think the gasification chamber doubles as the ash pit. The hot gas goes up through the heat exchanger tubes while the ashes drop to the bottom of the pit, where they can easily be scooped out through the bottom door.

    Is that a beer sitting next to Craig at the end of the video?

    Eric is right about the ashes - a small amount build up in the bottom of the ceramics and you pull them forward and into an ash pan.

    In true BroBart style, someday I will look at this video as the high point of the hill - it's been all downhill since then! After all, once one swings a sledge at a Tarm, how can I top that?

    Funny, but my Tarm Cohort (sales manager) Dave called me yesterday - he calls once every couple years. He is the guy pushing the pallet jack around when we walk into the warehouse. He just returned from China....has gone there a number of times just to see what is going on. He is completely floored by the speed at which they are modernizing. He also hopes to think up something to import from there.....

    I was wondering the same thing, Corie... wasn't sure if anyone else had thought that.
