How to build a Portable 420 watt Solar Power Generator . Very Detailed Video Instructions,perfect for beginners

    This 2 part series shows you how to build 240,420W Solar Power Generators .The first video outlines detailed step-by-step instructions on how to build a portable solar powered generator.The second video explains how to connect your generator to a solar panel and charge controller for charging, Also covered is how to combine your solar panel and charge controller into one unit so as to be more portable.This is powerful enough to recharge a cell phone, run a radio and power your fans and flashlights multiple times over. You can even charge power tools several times using this. As you can see, this is something that will provide substantial power thanks to the energy of the sun.

    The materials you need for this project are Solar Panel – We used a 10 W solar panel, which provided us with enough power to keep the battery charged.Wiring – Use extra-long wiring to attach your solar panel to the case to give yourself more flexibility on where you can point the panel towards the sun.Ammo Box – We used a large ammo box as a case. You aren’t limited to an ammo box. You can get creative and use anything that would hold your battery.Battery – We used and 18 amp hour battery to give us plenty of recharge and capabilities for all of our needs.Charge Controller – This is the middleman between the solar panel and the battery. It ensures that the battery does not get overcharged when it is full.Velcro – To hold the panel on while keeping it detachable.Inverter and USB Ports – Allows us to plug our electronics in and charge them.

      This video shows the build of a Homemade Inexpensive Concrete Mixer made out of 55 Gal Drum from start to finish.This build uses a salvaged 90V DC Gear driven motor.A motorcycle sprocket is welded on to the front of gear drive which fits the chain that goes around the Barrel. The most important benefit of a concrete mixer is that it can save a lot of labor. Mixing cement by hand is a difficult and time-consuming process.Another benefit of using a concrete mixer is that the mixer can ensure that cement or concrete is blended homogeneously, creating a much better result than mixing manually and helping prevent flaws in the finished cement.

      This video series shows the build of a Homemade Bandsaw Mill from Start to finish.The design for the saw is a good one, in that it was rock solid as it was making the cuts. Making the saw itself move as opposed to moving the wood through it would really make the build a lot more complex. Beefing up the frame to resist movement (chatter) while cutting through 16" of hard maple would be difficult, especially if the height was also adjustable.Using a stick to lever the wood through the saw was a very good way to regulate a steady feed rate and took little effort. For serious cutting in green, thick hardwood, a 2hp motor doesn't really "cut" it. To make the cutting more efficient (read faster), the blade speed should be very high - as high as 6000 fpm - and a motor that size doesn't have the power. A 6-8 hp gas engine would be much better
