How to build a Simple Survival Water Distiller using Bottles

This video shows the build of a Simple Solar Water Distillation System for survival/SHTF situations.This is made using 2 clear (plastic or glass) bottles and glue (or tape).Fill one bottle with dirty/or saltwater,then connect the second bottle and set in the sun.Within a few minutes the water begins to evaporate and the other bottle collects the clean distilled water vapor.make sure the bottles have an airtight connection. prop up bottles at a slight angle so as the dirty/or saltwater starts to evaporate – the max. amount of water vapor will travel up to the higher collection container. works best in bright sun.

  • How to build a Dirt Cheap Waste oil Barrel Heater .Easy to make and also doubles as a cooker
    This video series shows the build of a easy to build and inexpensive Waste Oil Heater which can be used for heating your garage.I am using my own waste oil burner design in this heater and it will be burning waste motor and waste vegetable oil as a fuel source.Free heat is easy to achieve from waste oil and if you can't weld it is possible to bolt this all together with just a little resourcefulness.This stove design will allow me to make changes to the waste oil burner unit in a modular way.This free heat shed heater works great as a heater and it's possible to even cook on this. Making lots of heat for free is really easy.

  • How to build a Simple Homemade OFF GRID Refrigerator from easily available materials
    This video shows the build of an OFF GRID Refrigerator from cheap and easy to find materials.This design uses both the cooling effect of evaporation, and two water cooled condenser coil's. The fridge is shown using both a water ram pump at the end, and an electric pump powered by 12 volt/solar, it only uses 8 watts an hour using electric.There is an air gap between the sheet and the wall of the fridge because the water running down the sheet wont evaporate as well and that the water temp is not as low as the evaporative temp so the water touching the cooler could increase the temps and limit some of the potential cooling. If the power goes out and the fridge doesn’t keep things cool anymore – what other options do we have? If you are trying to live off grid and have no power source – how can you keep food and certain medicines cool and usable for longer?Then this Offgrid Refrigerator  is the answer.

  • How to build a Simple,Effective Metal Melting Furnace using Old Steel Container and Ceiling Fan parts. No welding required

    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.
