DIY Video :How to heat your Home by building an Smokeless Outdoor Wood Boiler from Start to finish

    This video series shows the build of a smokeless wood burning boiler from start to finish.It is built from a old hot water tank and a small air compressor tank and costs next to nothing to build.The first video of the series  will show the construction of the boiler itself. The next video will detail how to hook it up to a pump and exchanger to bring the heat inside. The final video will show modifications I make to the stove to make it even more efficient.

    • How to convert an Old Ceiling Fan Motor into a 70W Efficient Single Phase Alternator Generator
      This project goes over the conversion of an old ceiling fan motor into an single phase alternator .You can't take your standard AC electric motor and spin it and get an electrical current out of it unless you modify it. The ceiling fan motor used here will produce about 70 volts at one amp which is roughly 70 watts. Through a bridge rectifier we can get about 70 watts of power out of it. We start by pulling the cover of the fan. Inside we have a squirrel cage rotor in the middle and 6 coil windings around it. The coil windings are placed in clockwise and anti-clock wise directions inside the stator. Next we remove the circular rotor from the threaded shaft which is attached to it with help of a vice. We attach the shaft with the rotor through it within a vice. With the help of an extra piece of pipe to give leverage, we press them against the rotor and push it away from the rod and pop it off. We are replacing the rotor that we have detached from the shaft with a two inch hex steel bar . It has six sides that matches with the six coils from the stator. With the help of one eighth inch drill bit we cut a hole in the center of our hex bar. We put the hex bar through the shaft and fit them snugly around the threaded area. We take six one half inch neodymium or rare earth magnets and place them along the the 6 sides of the hex bar. We place them in such a manner that the poles of the magnets are opposing each other. For permanent usage, wrap this with a little bit of tape or glue so that they are held in place securely. We place our modified rotor in the middle of the stator and align them such that they fit in tightly. The outer screen is bolted back onto the motor. We can also add second set of magnets to increase the magnetic field of the rotor .This will also bring it closer to the coils on the outside and increase the overall voltage. To convert the alternating current generated by our ceiling fan alternator to direct current, we use a bridge rectifier. It has 4 poles, 2 for connecting our alternating current, the other plus and negative for DC power.
    • How to build an Efficient and Inexpensive Double Barrel Garage Heater from Scrap metal.Step by step Video Instructions
      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.

    • DIY Video : How to build a Survival Water Distillation System for under $5 and turn Salt Water Into Fresh Water
      This video shows the build of a Survival Water Distillation unit using simple and easy to find items. If you were to actually purchase all the items needed this project would only cost $2-5.This Water distillation can treat contaminated water, purifying it completely, making it safe to drink.This is very ideal in a Survival situation or when SHTF.These distillers are effective, safe, and cheap, as they can be made from materials that are easy to obtain.  They are able to purify contaminated water and salt water.
