A pipe dream of mine for one day - has anyone tried out these plans? Would a knucklehead like me be able to figure them out?

Also, I made a pretty picture - feel free to share on the Book of Faces.

Byron,

You might want to leave a review using our "acorns" technique here.

When there are enough reviews, it will show up in our book review grid.

It depends on the price... I have Bens gasification books and they are amazing.  Solar information is out there and much more common and a lot of it is really good. The components are also much more reliable then even a decade ago and much more user friendly.  Do you need it? That is the question.
