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.

    This Video shows the build of a simple distillation unit from a water bottle that can be used to make fresh water from ocean water. Any steel container could work for this project. I almost used a small stainless steel food container, but decided a water bottle was a more practical object to carry.Knowing how to make distilled water is not just useful in a survival situation. It can also be an invaluable skill if your home’s tap water contains certain chemicals or impurities that you’d rather not drink.

  • How to build a Simple Homemade OFF GRID Refrigerator from easily available materials
    This video shows the build of an OFF GRID Refrigerator from cheap and easy to find materials.This design uses both the cooling effect of evaporation, and two water cooled condenser coil's. The fridge is shown using both a water ram pump at the end, and an electric pump powered by 12 volt/solar, it only uses 8 watts an hour using electric.There is an air gap between the sheet and the wall of the fridge because the water running down the sheet wont evaporate as well and that the water temp is not as low as the evaporative temp so the water touching the cooler could increase the temps and limit some of the potential cooling. If the power goes out and the fridge doesn’t keep things cool anymore – what other options do we have? If you are trying to live off grid and have no power source – how can you keep food and certain medicines cool and usable for longer?Then this Offgrid Refrigerator  is the answer.
