thomas, why did you think a stacked array of skinny auger retorts won't
work?   this seems a known solution that tends to work as far as i know.  of
course the proof is in the material handling with specific fuels.

did you find it difficult to keep the auger straight and working?  difficult
to keep the heat out of the motor and bearings at the ends?

any secret cautionary tales we should know of?
