Good Afternoon Readers,

It’s been a long time since I have posted anything new, but that is not to say that things haven’t been going on.  First of all, I have been working with my students at the University of Maine on pelletizing leaves and hay as gasifier fuel.  The guys built a beautiful mill to produce large pellets that will allow the high ash levels to blow through more effectively and hopefully not clinker.

Also in the works is a custom single engine controller that will improve on my past work.  This controller will control the fuel-air ratio and timing advance to optimize power output.

I know that many of you are waiting for hardware.  Hopefully once I get the students graduated and off to the real world I can get back to my shop.

Stephen
