How to build an Inexpensive Backyard Concrete Mixer at Home using an Old 55 gal Barrel


This video shows the build of a Homemade Inexpensive Concrete Mixer made out of 55 Gal Drum from start to finish.This build uses a salvaged 90V DC Gear driven motor.A motorcycle sprocket is welded on to the front of gear drive which fits the chain that goes around the Barrel. The most important benefit of a concrete mixer is that it can save a lot of labor. Mixing cement by hand is a difficult and time-consuming process.Another benefit of using a concrete mixer is that the mixer can ensure that cement or concrete is blended homogeneously, creating a much better result than mixing manually and helping prevent flaws in the finished cement.

  • DIY Video : How to build a Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator
    This video shows the build of a  Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator.A wood gas generator is able to convert wood, or in our case, wood pellets, into a source of fuel which can be used to generate electricity.The wood or charcoal is turned into wood gas, which will be used for powering our generator. In this tutorial, we are creating a wood gas generator that can be used to power and RV motor.From start to finish, we were able to put together this generator in only four hours. In total, we used less than $100 in parts. It’s a great way to build your own wood gas generator while staying on a tight budget.If done correctly, you should be able to run your generator by burning wood pellets alone. It’s enough to power a small 5 hp electric generator, or even more. .The materials you need for this project are 20 Gallon Metal Trash can - This will be used to contain the wine cooler and wood chips as they burn,Wine Cooler - This will encase the wood chips as they are burning,Metal Bowl - You will place the wood chips in this bowl and collect the coals as they burn.Filter - This will filter the tar out as it makes its way to the generator,Wood Pellets - Our fuel source.Aluminum Duct Line - This will connect to the gas generator to the wood pellet burning stove.Air Inlet Port - A valve that we can use to let air in as the wood gas travels to the generator.

  • DIY Videos :How to generate Free Power for the rest of your life by building a Micro Hydro Electric Power system and kiss the Grid system goodbye.
    This 16 part Awesome Video series shows the overview and setup in detail of a Micro Hydro Electric Power System build for the long term from the ground up.What a hydroelectric system does is that it converts the force from flowing water into electricity. You take the kinetic energy of water flowing downhill from a stream or river and direct it onto a wheel in a turbine that converts the rotational energy to electricity. I have 2 natural springs that provide water which falls about 500 vertical feet through a mile of pipe and develops about 220 psi..Harness the power of hydropower; flowing water for clean, sustainable home free electricity 24/7 and ditch your dependency on the grid system for good. [the_ad id="6435"] The basic components of this build are A Stream Of Flowing Water - A hydroelectric generator is only useful in a bed of flowing water,Magnets - The magnets will spin against the coils to create an electric current.Bearing - Used for the disc to spin against,Coils - The coils will spin against the bank is to create an electric current.Half-Inch PVC Pipe - The disc will be placed on the PVC pipe.5-gallon bucket,Waterline - We are using the 5-gallon bucket and waterline to create a closed system. The overview of the steps mentioned in this video series: The first step in creating your hydroelectric generator is to create the discs. There are two parts to the disc, the stator and rotator disc. The stator disk is stationary and contains the coils. The rotator disc will be spun using the water current. The magnets will spin against the coils, creating an electric current. Now that we know the process, it is time to learn how you can make a hydroelectric generator yourself. You can create these discs using templates that you can find online. Trace the amount uncovered and use them as templates to cut the discs that you will be using. Make a hole in the discs ½ inch wide, so the half-inch PVC pipe can fit through the center of them. Place the discs side-by-side and attach the fins to the turbine. Attach the turbine to the rotator disc so it spins as the turbine spins. Make sure the fins are facing into the flow of water so that they will be pushed as the water passes through them. Next, attach the coils to the stator and at the magnets to the rotator disc. When you add the magnets, alternate them with their North and South poles. Make sure each north facing magnet is next to two south facing magnets. Likewise, make sure each south facing magnet is next to two north facing magnets. Add the turbine, rotator disc, and stator disk to the PVC pipe and rest it on top of the bucket. Pour water over The fins and the turbine will begin spinning. As the turbine spins, it will begin producing current as the bank is passed across the coils.
