How to build an Inexpensive Backyard Concrete Mixer at Home using an Old 55 gal Barrel


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.

  • How to build a Simple Homemade Water Distiller that turns dirty water/salt water into clean fresh pure water
    [the_ad id="6432"] This video shows the build of a "pure water" Water Distiller that easily turns dirty water/salt water etc... into clean fresh pure water. This produces lots of clean water fast. Made from close to 12 feet of copper tubing along with a few fittings (optional stainless steel tube shown as well). video contains full instructions on how to build it. Early testing shows it produces about a quart in 1.5 hrs (and half gallon in 2.5 hrs). note that i soldered on the copper fitting. If you don't have a torch, they sell "push on" fittings that require no soldering. *if soldering, remember to use "lead-free" solder.The process is simple. It boils water and creates steam. The steam rises without bringing any of the impurities along with it. The steam travels through the coils and slowly cools and condenses. It finally condenses back to its liquid form and drips out as clean water.

    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
