DIY Video:How to recycle scrap metal in the backyard by building a simple Mini Metal Foundry from start to finish

This video shows you how to recycle scrap metal in the backyard, with a homemade, Mini Metal Foundry.Depending on where you get, or find, your materials the cost can range anywhere from $5-$25 per unit. With the materials I used, I was able to make 2 units for under $40 ($20 each).Even on the high end, this is probably one of the cheapest, reliable, backyard foundries that can be made.I used mine to melt soda cans, and extract the aluminum for future metal casting projects. All the soda cans came from a local recycling depot.

  • How to generate Free and Emergency hot water for your house by building a Waste Oil powered water heater
    This Video shows the build of a water heater from an old gas hot water service and converted it to run on waste oil instead of gas.The system could easily be set up in an off grid or prepper type location as it only needs a small amount of 12V power to supply the car blower I used here. The burner runs on any waste oil and is gravity fed without the need for Nozzles, pumps or compressors. As well as providing Domestic hot water, the output can also be used in a home heating system which is what I plan to set up for my home this winter.It could also be used for an outdoor shower, to heat water for animal troughs, to heat a spa or small swimming pool or other uses to replace gas or electric how water heating.

  • DIY Video : How to recycle your Waste motor oil,transmission oil or any waste fuel into 100% Re-Usable Fuel
    This video shows you How to recycle your Waste motor oil,transmission oil or any waste fuel into 100% Re-Usable Fuel.Instead of throwing away that used motor oil and fuel, you can reuse it. By using a centrifuge, you will be able to extract all of the impurities out from the fuel using centrifugal force. It is more effective that a filter in getting the micro-particles out, and it is completely safe to reuse in your vehicle. The materials needed for this project are Motor Oil - You will be using the centrifuge to convert used waste motor oil to clean fuel that you can reuse,Centrifuge - This will spin the motor oil and extract the impurities from it.Buckets - You will use the buckets to collect the waste and cleaned motor oil. Generator - The centrifuge will use a lot of power. You are going to need a generator in order to run it. Typically, 220 V will be enough to run the centrifuge.Spatula - You will use the spatula to clean the centrifuge and get all of the leftover gunk out of the cylinder to prepare it for another use.
