This Video series shows the build of a Large Homemade Water Wheel Electricity Generation System using few Maple Sap buckets,Old Bicycle Parts,thread mill motor and other easily available materials.Made of All leftover scrap metal parts and some sealed bearings from 2 old motors, also pipes, bed frames and a 2 foot section of water well pipe suspended on said roller bearings..Part 2 of the series explains the the sleuce trough suspension and connecting the alternator and the last part shows how all the parts are connected and then charges a car battery very well.
- How to build a Homemade Wooden Bandsaw Mill from Scratch.Step by step build InstructionsThis video series shows the build of a Homemade Bandsaw Mill from Start to finish.The design for the saw is a good one, in that it was rock solid as it was making the cuts. Making the saw itself move as opposed to moving the wood through it would really make the build a lot more complex. Beefing up the frame to resist movement (chatter) while cutting through 16" of hard maple would be difficult, especially if the height was also adjustable.Using a stick to lever the wood through the saw was a very good way to regulate a steady feed rate and took little effort. For serious cutting in green, thick hardwood, a 2hp motor doesn't really "cut" it. To make the cutting more efficient (read faster), the blade speed should be very high - as high as 6000 fpm - and a motor that size doesn't have the power. A 6-8 hp gas engine would be much better
- How to build an Inexpensive Geothermal Air Conditioning System to Cool your Home using an Old Car Radiator ,Solar Panel.This video series shows you how to make a geothermal cooling system to cool your home with the Earths natural cool temperature.10–15 feet underground, the temperature remains between 55 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This is true regardless of the weather above ground.The geothermal unit siphons heat from inside and vents it into the water or refrigerant in the loop. The cool temperature underground then lowers the temperature of the liquid back to 55 degrees.This cooler temperature can be used to cool your home efficiently .This build uses an old car radiator to circulate the air using a Solar Panel.
- How to build a Simple and Efficient Homemade Garage Fan out of Old Furnace BlowersThis 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.
