How to process your own Firewood by building a Cheap log spiltter made out of Scrap materials



This 3 part Video series shows the build of a hydraulic log splitter for cheap, by salvaging parts you can build a DIY splitter that will help with processing your firewood.  the Total cost was about $400 to build.I had the 6.5 hp motor from another project, I salvaged all of the metal , some of the scrap came from my work.We used our CNC plasma torch on this project and It made quick work cutting out all of the parts, But one could always free hand cut all the parts fairly easily with a torch.

  • DIY Video : How to build a Thermal Vacuum Water Pump that needs no electricity and has no moving parts!
    This Video shows the build of a Solar Evacuated Thermal Vacuum Water Pump works by harnessing the energy of the sun in the day time and then uses the cold of night to create a vacuum in the system that is used to pump water. This is a working prototype of an idea on how to pump water from stagnant water sources cheaply using no moving part.By using the sun's energy to generate both a pressure and a vacuum cycle we create a very efficient water pump, that has only two simple moving parts. This pump was able to move one gallon every cycle to 8 feet high, by creating artificial day/night cycles the pump could move about 1 gallon every 30 minutes of sunlight, or about 12 to 20 gallons a day.

  • DIY Video : How to build a DIY Pex Coil Solar Thermal Water Heater. Simple and Efficient!!
    This video shows the build of a Simple Pex Coil Solar Thermal Water Heater.asy DIY! No Soldering, Clamps, Crimp Rings, Glues, Unions, or that expensive crimping tool! in my design it's just 2 push-to-fit "shark-bite" connectors! (located outside of collector) and because it's all one piece of tube, the unit has no potential internal leak points.PEX is sturdy, tough and rigid. water temp rating range... 33F to 185F-200F (93°C) water! ...and if temps hit or fall below 32F (0°C) it's freeze damage resistant! it'll freeze but doesn't break. the connectors are made to last at least 25 years and pipe is rated 50+ years.

    This video shows the step by step build of a Homemade "COPPER PIPE" Solar Water Heater with material list.This reaches temps at or above 150F with air temps from high 40's to low 50's.This is a slim portable design (at only 2" thick) and is very rugged and durable (built with 2x2's and 1/2" plywood).This one hooks to a standard water tap/garden hose . Multiple panels can be hooked together for additional capacity and extras can be easily added.Multiple panels can be hooked together for additional capacity and extras can be easily added; water flow valves, temp sensors, timers etc. Make sure to use type L copper. Lastly, to secure the glass into the frame, just use a bead of silicone caulk around the edge and drop the glass in
