This video shows the build of a Homemade Garage fan made out of Old Furnace blowers that is easy to make and really efficient.Once you try one of these you’ll never use a box fan again. These fans are designed to run with constant restriction. So you need to recreate this when used out in the open by blocking roughly 25% of the air intake or output. If you don’t restrict the airflow the motor will pull significantly higher amps than it is rated for and will overheat/burn out.
If you want to be scientific you can look at the side of the motor and read the rated amps. Then with a load meter hooked up, run it and block off the air flow until the amp draw drops to or close to the rated amps.Centrifugal fans are amazing at moving a large quantity of air and the output can be ducted unlike axial.

This video shows how a simple Cordless Drill can effortlessly lift or move heavy loads. Definitely beats a Come Along.The winch in the video was purchased from Harbor Freight.With a snatch block this will lift 4000lbs which will pull a 20,000lb vehicle up a 10% grade.A snatch block is a really neat thing. By taking the cable out of the winch and through the pulley of the snatch block, then back to the winch it doubles the pull capacity.
It also halves the speed of the item being pulled/lifted but it is a worthwhile trade off. You can keep adding pulleys and running back and forth to reduce the strain on the winch.You will see that a cordless drill lifting a car off the ground is pretty damn impressive

This video series shows the build of a DIY 110 amp hour portable generator is designed to be powered by a 100W solar panel and 2 55AH AGM sealed batteries. The system includes a 30A PWM solar charge controller and a 400W pure sine wave inverter. 12V, 12V USB, and 110V AC outlets offer flexibility for powering/charging a variety of appliances. The system is also set up to be trickle charged via a SAE 2-pin port that allows for a convenient connection to an AC float charger.Total cost of all materials required to build this proj.ect, including all components of the generator and the solar panel, was approximately $950 USD.The parts lists and the wiring schematic is included at the end of the series.

This video shows the build of a Deluxe “Stainless Steel” Pure Water Still.This Distills all types of Dirty-water/Salt-water to a clean fresh drinking water.The materials you need for this project are : the 24″ stainless steel supply lines are 3/4″. the pvc piece is 1 1/4″ OD to 3/4″ threaded. the coupler is 1 1/4″ to 1 1 /4″. (adjust these as necessary to your specific kettle)Made using a stainless steel teapot and 6 feet of stainless steel tubing,this can either be used on a standard stove burner or rocket stove/campfire/parabolic dish for total off-grid operation.
This assembles/disassembles fast for easy portability.This produces water about 50% faster than my standard stainless steel design

This video shows how you can turn an old tyre into a pretty good supercapacitor using a process called graphetisation.The graphetisation process turns the tyre into 2 things, one graphited lumps of carbon and steel Worldwide we have a problem of disposing old tires and a shortage of energy storage for renewable energy.Some of the 300 million tires discarded each year in the United States alone could be used in supercapacitors for vehicles and other energy applications.
At the end of the video, they show how the tyre converted Supercapacitor power a small toy helicopter.Instead of dumping these old used tyres,we could use them to create off the grid power that will be helpful for millions.

This video shows the build of a Homemade Powerful ice-based air cooler that can hold large ice-blocks (up to 50lbs) and blows cool air for hours.This can be powered by 12v solar panel, 12v battery or wall current (w/ 12v ac/dc transformer).This is made using a plastic tote, 2 lighted 80mm 12v computer case fans (blue-lit/but choose your color) and 3 pvc couplers (1.5″ threaded).Tote is from walmart, fans from fry’s electronics/amazon and pvc couplers from home depot/lowes.
When fully loaded w/ice it significantly cools an area of 8×10 to 10×10 for several hours.The fans can be easily removed/or exchanged, (any 80mm fan works so you can run different colored ones, unlighted ones, ones of different speeds etc…anytime you want)

This video shows the build of a Simple Homemade Air Cooler using a Used Tropicana half gallon Juice carton.This desktop sized unit works very well and couldn’t be simpler to makeThis is made using made a “half gallon” (specifically 59oz./1.75L) juice carton, 80mm DC fan (blue-lit), 1.5″ PVC pipe coupler and a 3/8″ square wooden dowel.It holds about 2 ice-cube trays worth of ice at a time (and it has a built-in drain! so as ice melts you can drain the ice-water into a glass for a cold drink).
Thisonly took me 10 minutes to make it. cost about $8.50.This can be run using a 12v solar panel (2.4 watt or higher), a 12v battery or wall current (just use an ac to dc transformer that puts out 12vdc).

This video shows the build of a Simple Solar Water Distillation System for survival/SHTF situations.This is made using 2 clear (plastic or glass) bottles and glue (or tape).Fill one bottle with dirty/or saltwater,then connect the second bottle and set in the sun.Within a few minutes the water begins to evaporate and the other bottle collects the clean distilled water vapor.make sure the bottles have an airtight connection. prop up bottles at a slight angle so as the dirty/or saltwater starts to evaporate – the max. amount of water vapor will travel up to the higher collection container. works best in bright sun.
