11 Nov 11 Second Homemade CO2 laser in Action

What amounts to my second homemade CO2 laser, using Baking Soda/Vinegar for CO2, and helium. It uses a concave HR and a ZnSe OC. The plama tube is 5/16″ ID, with an arc length of about 29 inches. The cooling jacket is made of PVC pipe. A clear plastic window is provided through which the discharge can be seen. The cooling jacket extends past the arc length, via electrodes that are inserted into the glass plasma tube. The electrodes are just brass tubes which were purchased in a hardware store. The mirror adjustments were made with steel washers, and the hose connections and mirror cell mounts are attached to the plasma tube via O-ring compression fittings purchased in the plumbing section of a hardware store. The method outlined in the video is a slight modification from a process I originally read on the Hammock Forums. I encourage anyone interested in making their own gravity filter to first read that post at This is a really simple project and the majority of the smaller parts can be obtained from US Plastics without breaking the bank. To complete this project you will need: Parts 1 – Filter capable of being used in ‘inline’ capacity 1 – Tubing Clamp part # 59200 1 – Nylon Adapter MNPT 1/4″ x MGHT part # 63013 1 – Female Adapter Nylon Fitting 1/4″ x 1/4″ part #62169 5ft- Silicon Tubing 1/4″ ID x 3/8″ OD part # 54033 2 – Rubber Washers 7/16″ x 1″ x 1/16″ (obtain locally) Tools Razor Knife or Soldering Iron Sharpie

29 Oct 11 Eco Steve Homemade DIY Free Solar Hot Air Collector Heater Free Heat

How to make free solar hot air collectors at home with free materials, these are made from old light fixtures, uses glass, surplus foam board and used metal siding. After these collectors are installed we will have a blower fan to force cool air through a manifold system from the the house into the bottom holes. The hot air being forced out the top will be channeled to different rooms of the house. The blower motor will have a thermostat to come on only when there is enough heat produced within the collector. A second thermostat will control the maximum temp. so the house does not overheat.

18 Oct 11 Homemade Swimming Pool Solar Heating System

I’ve uploaded this for interest only. I’m not advocating doing it like this or making any statement of suitability. Don’t make or use anything like this unless you take full responsibility for health and safety. I’m not taking responsibility for your actions and I sure don’t want anyone interferring in my actions on the basis of freedom destroying nanny state health and safety. If you don’t like it then don’t use it! The main issue is the use of normal garden hose. I am taking the view that I am heating a pool which is filled with fresh water and will be emptied after the season. The water is circulated through the hose only a limited number of times over the season, is raised in temperature only a few degrees during normal use and is not actively drunk. It is, after all, the same water you use to water your vegetables with. It is important to use matt black paint to maximise the radiant heat capture. There is a noticeable increase in the pool temperature using these panels and turns swimming in it into a pleasurable experience. If you slow the flow rate down and fill a bucket with it on a sunny day you’ll see just how much heat is being added. It’s quite easy to reach temperatures you could bathe or shower in. Each panel is probably the equivalent of a kettle continually heating water all day long – and that would be very expensive! I run it at a reasonable flow rate so that the temperature at the return is raised to tepid. This reduces stress on the hose. There is no
