pannor1, thank you for the picture. It brought me back to the late 40's when I used to watch bus drivers at my neighbourhood bus depot hand crank blower (attached to the gas generator) to start fire in the morning. Come to think of it now, it's carbon neutral! In remote wood logging sites this engine comes handy for driving electric generator or rotary saw. Actually wood chips and scraps are better fuel for this purpose than charcoal because of their water content (water turns into H2 along with CO and HC rather than CO only from charcoal).

I googled for more pictures:
