Testing The Works It smokes Testing the steel version 
Here we are testing the steel version of the fuel silo. The wood feeds with minimal sticking and hang-ups.

Our first test with a cyclone to eliminate char emissions.

First attempt The gadgets run-up
First attempted run-up. All controls are fully manual and are a bit of a handful.

Electrical power generation Electrical power generation Electrical power generation from wood to electricity
Sept 29 2006 this is the first time we generated electrical power. The fuel was split hardwood. this is the machine that was demonstrated on The Discovery Channel in 2008.
We have finished with this prototype for now. We are now focusing on our J07 gas generator and PU37 Power turbine and gearbox.
