This video shows the build of a Emergency Water Distillation Portable Still that removes biological, salt and heavy metal contamination from drinking water.The still is made by putting an upside-down stainless steel funnel over a pot of boiling water as a lid. Ideally the pot is designed for cooking, but in an emergency any metal container, such as a soda can, may be used. Connect a 1/2 inch diameter copper pipe to the funnel with three 45 degree elbow fittings. Put a damp rag on the pipe to condense the steam. Fresh, drinkable water will drip out of end of the pipe

This Video series shows the build of a Large Homemade Water Wheel Electricity Generation System using few Maple Sap buckets,Old Bicycle Parts,thread mill motor and other easily available materials.Made of All leftover scrap metal parts and some sealed bearings from 2 old motors, also pipes, bed frames and a 2 foot section of water well pipe suspended on said roller bearings..Part 2 of the series explains the the sleuce trough suspension and connecting the alternator and the last part shows how all the parts are connected and then charges a car battery very well.
This video shows the build of a simple off grid washer machine which can also act as a composter.If you thought the only way to wash clothing off grid was to take them down to the creek and beat them against a rock, think again.All you need in order to build this washer is a plastic barrel, some pipes, and – you guessed it – a wooden frame. The frame is meant to support the barrel and keep it from rolling away. You’re going to use the pipes to attach the barrel to the frame, as well as to create the lever that helps you wash the clothes.
This video series shows how to dig yourselves a water well by hand from start to finish and thereby save more than 2000 to 3000 Dollars .I am using a 6″ auger post hole digger available at most hardware stores. One of the hurdles to living off grid is having a clean water supply. One of the very best ways to address that issue is with your own well..Learning how to dig a well is a good lesson that every prepper should master.Even if it doesn’t come to a survival scenario, having your own water supply means that you’re basically off the grid. You’re not dependent upon third parties.
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 shows the build of a Simple Homemade “Straw Style” Water Filter that is 99.9% effective at removing many common disease/cancer causing water contaminants.This is good to have when hiking/camping and ideal for in a SHTF/Emergency situation.This is also is excellent for purifying rain (or tap) water.The materials needed for this build are poultry baster, coffee filters, cotton balls (optional) and activated carbon. All items found at dollar store – except the activated carbon .This Water Filter is small, lightweight and powerful.
This video shows an easy conversion of an Old Ceiling Fan motor into a Power producing 40 Watt 200V 3000RPM Alternator Generator that can used for powering your devices.The ceiling fan motors have the stator in the center and the outer portion that usually attaches to the fan blades rotates around the stationary stator. This allows for Neodymium Magnets to be placed around the perimeter. When the outer portion spins, it produces an alternating current. For conversion of an alternating current (AC) input into direct current a (DC) output, a bridge rectifier is used
