      This video shows a vegetable oil heavy fuel gasifier that I built in an attempt to fuel a gasoline engine with waste oil. Here i test this with an old lawnmower engine. In this video I use vegetable oil as fuel, but used motor oil should work as well.The other videos shows the build of a similar used motor oil gasifier that I built from an old fire extinguisher and some pipe. It works by pyrolysis.This one has an improved burner and sideways canister orientation.

    • How to build a Simple and Efficient Homemade Garage Fan out of Old Furnace Blowers
      This video shows the build of a Homemade Garage fan made out of Old Furnace blowers that is easy to make and really efficient.Once you try one of these you'll never use a box fan again. These fans are designed to run with constant restriction. So you need to recreate this when used out in the open by blocking roughly 25% of the air intake or output. If you don't restrict the airflow the motor will pull significantly higher amps than it is rated for and will overheat/burn out. If you want to be scientific you can look at the side of the motor and read the rated amps. Then with a load meter hooked up, run it and block off the air flow until the amp draw drops to or close to the rated amps.Centrifugal fans are amazing at moving a large quantity of air and the output can be ducted unlike axial.
