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.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.

In my mission to be more self sufficient on our urban homestead, I am always in search of ways to take advantage of what God has provided us with, free of charge. Today, that form of hand-out is solar heat.In consideration of heat for my garage, I toyed with several ideas… wood, kerosene, and propane were my first choices, and then I thought maybe I should experiment with solar thermal. I did some research on solar thermal heat and then added my own common sense thinking to come up with this new solar thermal heat collector. My total cost was about $120 bucks and a day and a half worth of work

In this Video tutorial, we are going to show you how you can build your own homemade wind turbine for under $50.The wind turbine is a nice addition to your solar generator system for times when it’s cloudy and you are not receiving as much sunlight as you normally do.A wind turbine is a perfect backup source energy when your solar is not doing a job.
The materials you will need for this project are Permanent Magnet Hobby Motor – The spinning turbine will generate electricity with this motor,Charge Controller – The turbine wires will connect to the charge controller,PVC Pipe – Used for the wings and the stand for the turbine,Wire – To transfer the energy to your batteries.,Drill – Drill holes for the screws,Screws – Secure the wings to the hub.,Sandpaper – Sand the PVC wings so they capture the wind more efficiently,A Sheet of Tin – For the YAW system.

These series of videos shows how to easily Refine and Smelt Gold from Computer Memory Chips. In the first video I’m recovering Gold from computer Memory Chips (RAM).The Part 2 video on how to take the gold from computer chips and refine it to a more pure metal and smelt it.In Part 3 video, I’m doing a purity test on the gold I recovered from the computer memory chips.If you follow this process, you will be able to convert all of your old and outdated computer chips into pure gold that you can turn around and sell for money. It’s a great way to salvage your old electronics and get some value out of them.

This video shows the build of a Simple Woodgas generator for small electric RV generator.A wood gas generator is able to convert wood, or in our case, wood pellets, into a source of fuel which can be used to generate electricity.The wood or charcoal is turned into wood gas, which will be used for powering our generator. In this tutorial, we are creating a wood gas generator that can be used to power and RV motor.From start to finish, we were able to put together this generator in only four hours. In total, we used less than $100 in parts. It’s a great way to build your own wood gas generator while staying on a tight budget.If done correctly, you should be able to run your generator by burning wood pellets alone. It’s enough to power a small 5 hp electric generator, or even more.
.The materials you need for this project are 20 Gallon Metal Trash can – This will be used to contain the wine cooler and wood chips as they burn,Wine Cooler – This will encase the wood chips as they are burning,Metal Bowl – You will place the wood chips in this bowl and collect the coals as they burn.Filter – This will filter the tar out as it makes its way to the generator,Wood Pellets – Our fuel source.Aluminum Duct Line – This will connect to the gas generator to the wood pellet burning stove.Air Inlet Port – A valve that we can use to let air in as the wood gas travels to the generator.

This 7 Part Video series shows the conversion of a old unused ceiling fan into a power generator.Part One shows the dismantling of the ceiling fan and how to wire it up.Part Two shows how to insert a metal banding used for attaching the magnets around the stator. Part Three shows how to orient/place the magnets inside the ceiling fan housing to achieve a voltage reading.Part Four shows how to mount the face plate and create your own turbine blades. Part Five shows how to build the body to support the turbine.Part Six shows how to mount the turbine unit onto the body as well as partially lighting a CFL bulb with a quick spin.Part Seven is the final part that shows how to wire up the turbine to the diode bridge rectifier and taking it for it’s first flight.

This Video shows one of the most efficient wood stove on the planet it will make gasoline run a generator and a propane fridge, heats hot water and your home at the same time.This Stove can burn all paper and plastic trash, cow dung, wood, grass and even dry human waste plus just about every other dry organic compound. The bio-digester manure can be burnt after it produces methane for you and used as Syn-Gas.To construct a perfect wood stove, you have to collect all the important components, with which the device should be built up. You’ll need Barrel,Stovepipe,Driller,Braces,Welding gloves.Generally, it is said that the efficiency of wood may vary from one model to another. However, still, with the above method, you can design the best stove, which can not only operate a generator and fridge but also forms gasoline. If your stove is in hotter condition, it may be easier to break down the fuel into smaller particles at the time of burning.

This video shows you How to recycle your Waste motor oil,transmission oil or any waste fuel into 100% Re-Usable Fuel.Instead of throwing away that used motor oil and fuel, you can reuse it. By using a centrifuge, you will be able to extract all of the impurities out from the fuel using centrifugal force. It is more effective that a filter in getting the micro-particles out, and it is completely safe to reuse in your vehicle.
The materials needed for this project are Motor Oil – You will be using the centrifuge to convert used waste motor oil to clean fuel that you can reuse,Centrifuge – This will spin the motor oil and extract the impurities from it.Buckets – You will use the buckets to collect the waste and cleaned motor oil. Generator – The centrifuge will use a lot of power. You are going to need a generator in order to run it. Typically, 220 V will be enough to run the centrifuge.Spatula – You will use the spatula to clean the centrifuge and get all of the leftover gunk out of the cylinder to prepare it for another use.
