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.

  • 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.
