- DIY Video: How to build a Homemade Gravity fed ,Drip Waste Oil Heater for your Garage . Really Efficient…..Good heat.This video shows the build of a gravity fed, drip waste oil burner .This is the one of the simplest design for maximum heat and flexibility .The concept behind this burner is that Oil does not burn, but the fumes it gives off when the oil is boiling.The deeper the pan the harder is it to maintain an efficient boil.A cast iron pan maintains the higher temperature the best and does not threaten to burn through.The secondary holes in the vertical pipe are where the actual burn is occurring.The materials needed for this build are Air compressor tank,Pan that has been burnt for about one and half hour,Oil, like motor oil,Flamer,Chimney pipe (with length of about ten feet).This setup creates a lot of carbon in and around the burning chamber, but does not smoke at all.It will run about 400-500 degree Celsius (at the base) at under or up-to 1L per hour
- DIY Video: How to build a Homemade Hot Water Off grid Air Heater using Heat Exchanger and a Car Radiator FanThis video shows the build of a Homemade Hot Water Air Heater using an old heat exchanger and a car radiator fan.This unit provides near-instant warm air.The Air-Flow: it's adjustable from 10 CFM to 1500 CFM. max breeze 20 Mph! The Temps: With input water temps between 120F to 150F the output air temp ranged from 85F to 110F. *or from heat pump temps up to near furnace temps! easily warms a room or two, maybe more.The heart of the unit is an 8x8 Copper/Aluminum Heat Exchanger., This unit can easily be run straight from a 12v solar panel or battery so it's "off-grid" ready. Simply mounted the fan in front of it,then connected the pipes. then you just connect a small water pump (200-350 gph) to one of the pipes and drop both pipes into a water-filled sink,almost immediately it creates very warm air (in under a minute).
- DIY Video:How to build a Cheap Homemade HHO Hydrogen Generator .Great for Cutting,Melting,Welding and PolishingThis video shows the build of a Homemade HHO Generator and torch for cutting and welding scrap metals .This safe torch makes an ideal tool for welding, brazing, soldering, drilling, cutting, polishing and annealing for metals, ceramics, glass and plastics.The Flame/Fuel Generator internally produces hydrogen and oxygen gasses from the distilled water fuel, utilizing the electrolytic process. The gasses are generated naturally in the two-to-one ratio needed for efficient flame combustion.
