This video series shows the step by step build of a my barrel stove project without the kit.I’m building this with crap metal I have laying around the shop to avoid spending any money at all on this kit.The 2nd barrel makes the stove more efficient. With a single barrel you loose a ton of heat out of the chimney not to mention the more heat that stays within the stove means the cleaner it will burn. In my opinion the 2nd barrel is an absolute must. But yes it is warmer because you do not loose nearly as much heat.
- How to build a Homemade Micro Wind Turbine for under $50 that can be mounted anywhere[the_ad id="6432"] 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.
- How to build a Simple Homemade Water Distiller that turns dirty water/salt water into clean fresh pure water[the_ad id="6432"] This video shows the build of a "pure water" Water Distiller that easily turns dirty water/salt water etc... into clean fresh pure water. This produces lots of clean water fast. Made from close to 12 feet of copper tubing along with a few fittings (optional stainless steel tube shown as well). video contains full instructions on how to build it. Early testing shows it produces about a quart in 1.5 hrs (and half gallon in 2.5 hrs). note that i soldered on the copper fitting. If you don't have a torch, they sell "push on" fittings that require no soldering. *if soldering, remember to use "lead-free" solder.The process is simple. It boils water and creates steam. The steam rises without bringing any of the impurities along with it. The steam travels through the coils and slowly cools and condenses. It finally condenses back to its liquid form and drips out as clean water.
