This video series shows the step by step build of a simple Homemade Lumber mill. One of the best things about this design is it’s simplicity of course, but it’s also made from salvaged and re-purposed materials.With your own mill, you can cut local softwoods to frame buildings and you can saw up local hardwood logs for mantles, doors, paneling and other house trim, or to make into furniture.You have to at first make boards, taking the parts from trees. You may do it by using your chainsaw.You can make almost all types of board, by fitting the big devices to the bar of chainsaw.You need to use a pipe, some bolts and steel in order to construct a lumber maker. For making the mill, weld together a rectangular shaped short sized chainsaw bar.

This video shows a DIY Mud Pump Water Well Drilling Setup utilizing a Portable Mud pit. A typical mud pump will put out 100 gallons per minute whereas two hoses are only good for about 12 to 15 gallons per minute.A mud pump allows you to employ a re-circulating system so you can use bentonite or other gelling material that will solidify the sandy, crumbly walls of your borehole long enough you can drill without worrying about your hole collapsing on your drill pipe.


The essential elements or materials mandatory for the construction of a water well are as A Guide tube, which is an essential element of the mud pit. It guides the cuttings into the mud pit. Both vertical and horizontal guide tubes are required, which will be joined by a T-section,A delicate and efficient mud pump,Lots of hosepipes for carrying the water,A tub of Gasoline,A portable mud pit,Fittings for the waterline,Several 2 inch PVC pipes and 2 inch couplings,A drill pipe and a drill head, which attaches to the top of the drill pipe.An electric screwdriver,• PVC primer and cement,Metal drill bit.

Being able to build your own make-do shelter out of the resources available in your immediate surroundings is a critical skill in bushcraft and outdoor living.

This multi part video series shows the build of a typical lean-to shelter first and then upgraded to a Kochanski super shelter, it gives you a good idea of the structure and how it works.This is a complete Bug out Camp Build Instruction series from start to finish.

The materials you’ll need to build this shelter are Rope – To secure the frame of your shelter together.Support Poles – These will serve as the skeleton of the shelter and bed frame,Large Tarp – To use as your roof.V-Shaped Branches – These will be used to raise your bed off the ground,Saw and Hatchet – For cutting the wood.

The steps mentioned in the video :

The first step to building your survivors shelter is to create the shelter itself. Start with a standing tree and use that as a support point for your shelter. Gather large support poles from fallen down trees to use as your frame for the shelter.

Rest two large support poles against the tree and secure them together using your rope. From there, begin adding cross support poles vertically and horizontally. When you are finished, you should be left with a rectangle that stands at a 45° angle from the ground to leaning against the tree.

You can also start by building the frame on the ground and looking it up to rest in against the tree at the end. Just make sure will be strong enough to do this if you are alone.


Once the frame of the shelter is complete, lay your tarp over it. If you don’t have a tarp, look for different types of debris that you can layer over top of it. Start with tree branches and pile on smaller debris to cover in all of the holes.

If you use the tarp, you may want to add debris on top of it to use as camouflage. The debris will also help keep heat in at night because it will make it more difficult for heat to escape through the top of it.

Next, it is time to build your bed. Start by finding V-shaped branches. You can usually find these types of branches on large tree limbs that have fallen off. Cut out four of these branches and push them into the ground. Take two large support poles and secure them on top of the V-shaped branches to create the frame of the raised bed. Next, begin laying smaller support branches perpendicular to the main support beams that you will lay on top of. Secure each beam with rope so that it does not move around when you lay on it.

These are the basics of creating your very own survival shelter. This is a great shelter to use when it gets cold at night. You can build a fire towards the opening of the shelter and the roof will reflect heat back towards you. It’s easy to build on your own and it is a great way to stay warm and off the ground when you sleep.

This video shows the build of a river pump  that you can use to pump water from a nearby river or creek anywhere you want. It works by harnessing the flow of the river and creating air pressure to push the water further.It pushes water out from the river and up through your hose system, which you can direct where needed. To use a river pump, all you need is a nearby river or creek that has flowing water and a location that is deep enough to support your river pump. As long as you have that and the necessary supplies, you are good to go.


The materials you need for this project are River Or Creek – In order to use river pump, you need a nearby river or creek with flowing water,2”- 3” Reducer,3”- 4” Reducer,4” – 6” Reducer – These reducers will be used to connect the PVC tubing together,40’ of 3/8” tubing – Air pressure will build into the tubing, pushing the water out from the river,Hose Adapter – Use a swivel adapter to allow the fins to spin.

This video shows the build of an Alaskan Style Chainsaw Mill from Junk Steel scraps lying around your garage. Compact, lightweight design bolts directly to the chainsaw’s bar without much drilling required.A chainsaw mill is a great tool to use to make long straight and highly accurate cuts. It works best on large slabs where you will be able to run the chainsaw mill across the entire block over and over. A chainsaw mill uses a guide board that will ensure that each cut the same width with every pass. They are small and easy to maneuver, which makes them a perfect portable large-scale cutting device. Below, we will show you how you can make your very own Alaskan style chainsaw mill.


The materials you need for building this are :Steel Scraps – You will use these to create the frame of the saw.Welder – To cut and weld in the steel frame together.A Square – To ensure that your frame is balanced with 90° angles.Metal Tubing – Will be used to change the elevation of the cut.Chainsaw – This will serve as the saw for the chainsaw mill.

This video shows the build of a 2ltr/min HHO generator from start to finish.The HHO generator can turn water into gas by using electrolysis to separate water’s hydrogen and oxygen atoms.Hydrogen Generator Creates Hydroxy Gas which enters your car through the air intake. This hho gas mixes with your fuel/air mixture, which increases combustion and more efficient burning of the fuels.This provides better gas mileage as less gas is being wasted as well as increases power and lowers emissions.
