How to process your own Firewood by building a Cheap log spiltter made out of Scrap materials



This 3 part Video series shows the build of a hydraulic log splitter for cheap, by salvaging parts you can build a DIY splitter that will help with processing your firewood.  the Total cost was about $400 to build.I had the 6.5 hp motor from another project, I salvaged all of the metal , some of the scrap came from my work.We used our CNC plasma torch on this project and It made quick work cutting out all of the parts, But one could always free hand cut all the parts fairly easily with a torch.

    This 16 part Awesome Video series shows the overview and setup in detail of a Micro Hydro Electric Power System build for the long term from the ground up.What a hydroelectric system does is that it converts the force from flowing water into electricity. You take the kinetic energy of water flowing downhill from a stream or river and direct it onto a wheel in a turbine that converts the rotational energy to electricity. I have 2 natural springs that provide water which falls about 500 vertical feet through a mile of pipe and develops about 220 psi..Harness the power of hydropower; flowing water for clean, sustainable home free electricity 24/7 and ditch your dependency on the grid system for good. [the_ad id="6435"] The basic components of this build are A Stream Of Flowing Water - A hydroelectric generator is only useful in a bed of flowing water,Magnets - The magnets will spin against the coils to create an electric current.Bearing - Used for the disc to spin against,Coils - The coils will spin against the bank is to create an electric current.Half-Inch PVC Pipe - The disc will be placed on the PVC pipe.5-gallon bucket,Waterline - We are using the 5-gallon bucket and waterline to create a closed system. The overview of the steps mentioned in this video series: The first step in creating your hydroelectric generator is to create the discs. There are two parts to the disc, the stator and rotator disc. The stator disk is stationary and contains the coils. The rotator disc will be spun using the water current. The magnets will spin against the coils, creating an electric current. Now that we know the process, it is time to learn how you can make a hydroelectric generator yourself. You can create these discs using templates that you can find online. Trace the amount uncovered and use them as templates to cut the discs that you will be using. Make a hole in the discs ½ inch wide, so the half-inch PVC pipe can fit through the center of them. Place the discs side-by-side and attach the fins to the turbine. Attach the turbine to the rotator disc so it spins as the turbine spins. Make sure the fins are facing into the flow of water so that they will be pushed as the water passes through them. Next, attach the coils to the stator and at the magnets to the rotator disc. When you add the magnets, alternate them with their North and South poles. Make sure each north facing magnet is next to two south facing magnets. Likewise, make sure each south facing magnet is next to two north facing magnets. Add the turbine, rotator disc, and stator disk to the PVC pipe and rest it on top of the bucket. Pour water over The fins and the turbine will begin spinning. As the turbine spins, it will begin producing current as the bank is passed across the coils.

  • How to build a Simple Homemade Water Distiller.Great for emergency or everyday use.
    This video shows the build of a Deluxe "Stainless Steel" Pure Water Still.This Distills all types of Dirty-water/Salt-water to a clean fresh drinking water.The materials you need for this project are : the 24" stainless steel supply lines are 3/4". the pvc piece is 1 1/4" OD to 3/4" threaded. the coupler is 1 1/4" to 1 1 /4". (adjust these as necessary to your specific kettle)Made using a stainless steel teapot and 6 feet of stainless steel tubing,this can either be used on a standard stove burner or rocket stove/campfire/parabolic dish for total off-grid operation. This assembles/disassembles fast for easy portability.This produces water about 50% faster than my standard stainless steel design

  • DIY Video : How to build a Simple Homemade Heat Exchanger for heating your house .No Electricity required and Inexpensive…..
    This video shows the build of a redneck style off grid wood burning heat exchange we use to heat our house in the winter. It will keep your home warm without electricity, or using the furnace. The air comes in through the front, where there is a lot of spaces along the bottom of the barrel, then gets heated and rises through the duct in to the house.Here,the air from the house does not go into the exchanger, it only pushes warm air into the house.
