This video shows a vegetable oil heavy fuel gasifier that I built in an attempt to fuel a gasoline engine with waste oil. Here i test this with an old lawnmower engine. In this video I use vegetable oil as fuel, but used motor oil should work as well.The other videos shows the build of a similar used motor oil gasifier that I built from an old fire extinguisher and some pipe. It works by pyrolysis.This one has an improved burner and sideways canister orientation.

This video shows the complete build of a Portable Rocket Mass Heater. This heater goes together like an erector set and comes apart just as easily. It’s custom mini mass. This heater can save you up to 80% on your heating bills. It is super efficient. This heater is beautiful and built completely from reclaimed and repurposed items. This rocket mass heater is Artistic one of a kind! This rocket mass heater is made with air crete, and is budget friendly, handmade, and better than a wood stove.The advantage of this rocket mass heater is the huge increase in the efficiency of capturing and storing the available heat.

This video shows the build of a Home heating system that heat via hydronic (heat produced with water).This hot water heating system us typically installed at the baseboard or, at the very least, a point low to the ground. Since heat naturally rises, placing the heating element at the lowest point in a room is an easy way to evenly heat the air in a space.The hot water in the system is obtained from a boiler in a utility room, and this boiler is heated by gas, oil, or electricity. The hot water is pumped through a system of pipes that are installed in the baseboard. The heat from this hot water is transferred to the room, and once the heat transfer has cooled the water down again, it’s piped back to the boiler room, replaced by a fresh influx of hot water, and reheated.

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.

Considering that most disasters can cause serious disruptions in the water supply and the importance of water for survival, putting in a well is a great idea. Of all the possible sources for water, having a well on your own property is the most secure source you can have.This video series shows step by step the build of a Homemade Deep Well Water Pump.Even so, if the grid goes down, that water could be out of your reach, if you don’t take the right precautions.

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.
