This video series shows how you can run a generator on wood or even trash.When wood is heated it releases a few different types of gases, I use a homemade gasifier to extract these gases out of the wood, I first run the gas through a condenser coil to condense any steam and tar out of the gas, I then use a bubble filter to catch that water and tar and it also helps in filtering out some of the unwanted smoke, next the gas runs through a homemade filter to remove the last of the unwanted byproducts, The wood gas then runs directly into the air intake on the 25cc engine.

This video series shows step by step the build and installation of a Simple Solar Air Heating Collectors that uses no electricity or batteries made from salvaged materials.The air enters at the center bottom of the collector, where an aluminum baffle spreads the flow across the width of the collector on the glazing side of the screen absorber. The air rises up between the glazing and the absorber, and eventually finds its way through the three layers of screen absorber and flows to the back side of the collector. The air then flows up the back side of the collector to the exit vent located at the top of the collector.

This video series shows the build of a homemade cheap metal melting furnace.No welds were required to make this furnace.An old steel container was used for the body of the furnace.Masking tapes was used to provide a visual guide for cutting the furnace with an angle grinder.The container was 13 inch from the bottom.High temperature castable refractory and ceramic insulation were used in order to reduce propane fuel use and to allow for the possibility of melting copper alloys. Most of the materials, besides the ceramic insulation and castable refractory, were salvaged for this build.

This Video shows the build of a water heater from an old gas hot water service and converted it to run on waste oil instead of gas.The system could easily be set up in an off grid or prepper type location as it only needs a small amount of 12V power to supply the car blower I used here. The burner runs on any waste oil and is gravity fed without the need for Nozzles, pumps or compressors. As well as providing Domestic hot water, the output can also be used in a home heating system which is what I plan to set up for my home this winter.It could also be used for an outdoor shower, to heat water for animal troughs, to heat a spa or small swimming pool or other uses to replace gas or electric how water heating.
