    Chris, We were happy to meet you and your family during your cross country trip. Thanks for posting about the GEK III gasifier and your experience building it. We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming workshop. We’ve got nearly 70 people coming in from all over the world! Your recent experience will help those interested in welding up a kit during our workshop. You will be welcomed with open arms by the APL crew that met you while in Berkeley- and meet Jay too! See you in next weekend.

    Julia Hasty from All Power Labs addressed the questions I raised in an email … here is the relevant info …

    For your questions below:
    1. The 1.5 weld coupler went away but was not replaced by the smaller second square port in function.
    Refer to the assembly instructions section IV. Reactior, section I Ash Port and Grate Shake Port from the link here: http://wiki.gekgasifier.com/w/page/27905807/Assembly%20Instructions%20for%20the%20GEK%20v4%20Kit

    You will want to scan through these assembly instructions first for these wil point out some of the subtle version changes that we dont quite have updated in our welding videos quite yet.

    2.Yes, you are correct- you have the latest and greatest version that happens to have this small difference as well.

    3. Yes you are correct in your assumption here as well. You will want to use a 1/2” halved weld coupler at these ports.

    Thanks Julia!

    Can’t tell you how disappointed we were when the van cacked on Chris. He was so looking forward to coming down and seeing everybody and meeting like-minded people, since I (his wife) kind of take his alternative thinking for granted these days. Our son was going to accompany him, but if you are having another workshop in the next 6-9 months, I think I may come down with him. I loved Berkeley and while I may hang around and geek out with all of you for a bit, I’d probably do some exploring in your lovely neck of the woods.
