Would a French speaking Bee, bee so kind as to get this article and translate it. If necessary I can probably get it and scan it, however I don't have easy access to a scanner.
They prepare DMT and 5-meoDMT in this article.

The Mannich reaction of ClCH2CHO with indoles in the presence of NHR32 gave gramines I (R = H, Me; NR32 = NMe2 morpholino; R3 = H, MeO) which were reduced by NaBH4 to the corresponding tryptamines II. Hydrolysis of I gave the amino alcs. which also rearranged to the a-hydroxytryptamines; dimerization during hydrolysis was also obsd. Treating II with addnl. ClCH2CHO gave tetrahydrocarbolines III (Q = CHCH2X, X = Cl, OH, H, SO2C6H4Me-p) by a Pictet-Spengler condensation. Redn. with NaBH4 gave the azepinoindole III (Q = CH2CH2).
