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).
- 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
