Sergio,Thanks for the reply and the information. I look forward to seeing more of your screw chipper. If you get a chance next video you do, and if you are comfortable doing so, can you try to find a dry piece of wood either board or limb wood and show us how much splintering of the wood may happen verses a green piece. Thanks again. I will try to get you some pictures of mine when I get further on it.David S.Hi davidWe have mixed whether, one of those crazy mounthes ,one does not know whether to be out or inbut not snow yet and when it does only last a few seconds , hope things are good with you lives goes on years go by very quicklyso many things to do never have the time to to half of them .look how long is taken me to get around puting this screw in the tube !! anyway ...the casing is 140mm in diameter and to be honest I did not mesure the thikness but will do that for you , just picked it up at the breaker and made the screw to fit it. but its a very thickYou right oberving that there is a gap or ruther too much of a gap between the screw and the adgewill sort that easily welding a spacer on the edge will do a close up video e foto in the morning and post thatI saw this video how to make a screw profetionally http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23VBg0h8GnMI thought I would have a go to make a smaller not with hydraulics pressure brutal force with a large wrench and vicecutting the flights in halfs did simplify the job allotwill keep you postedall the bestsergioSergio,Good job on the screw chipper. I am working on one pretty much identical to that. I have the shafts all made, I have the auger, and the housing. I just need to start assembling it. How heavy did you go with your outer housing, it looks like about 1/4” (6mm) I think if I remember right your auger was about 1/2 in (12mm) thick. I had my auger special made as one helicoil flight. I believe you did yours in segments?Again looks great. Might need to pitch the hopper more at an angle, and like you said tighten up your gap between auger and shear edge.Keep us posted. How is life on your island this time of year? Warm enough to rain rather than snow.David S.Finnally is ready still a little more attention but it worksand it gives good size chips did not cost an arm and a legbuild in mild steel iam up loading another in a few minutescheers to all you good people in particulary Larosa manciaosergioJames,I used 1.25 on the original machine and 2" on the machine that is running the 6kW generator. The 2" pipe does have a 3/4 pipe running down the center for a preheating heat exchanger, though.StephenI have been looking here for about 4 months but I have had an intrest in woodgas from stories my father would tell me.
I was wondering about the size of outlet for the woodgas for a gasifier about the size of a Victoria?
- great vid, looks like the angle pulls feedstock in to make your work easier.
great camera work. when you walked to the woodpile, the camera did not shake. made me think of Les Stroud.
one more thing for your resume.
