  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I'm looking for an alcohol heater that would run 8 hours. It appears HeatMate 5200 and the Dometic Origo 5100 are no longer made. Anyone have any ideas for an 8 hour run time? Walmart has an Origo 5100 but that appears to be the last of the stock. A DDG search revealed multiple sites are out of...

    mention in another thread about burning corn. apparently there are stoves, very similar to pellet stoves, for corn (grain only, no cob / shuck). I'm sure a regular wood stove could burn corn still on cob. anyone do this? here's a news article about...

    I'm trying to prepare for what looks to be a very cold winter here in South Dakota... I have a propane tank out back - the central heat runs on a furnace but doesn't appear to be very efficient. I have space heaters but am concerned they will use too much electricity. Because I rent, getting a...

    Has anyone had any experience with heat damaging any preps they have in their vehicles? After all, it gets well over a hundred degrees inside the vehicle in the summer. I have specifically thought about: Pepper spray or bear spray exploding when it gets too hot in the vehicle. Plastic preps...

    I recently purchased a used Mossberg 590 (the non-A1 version). This is my first shotgun and I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. When I got home I realized that the heat shield was missing the little spacer that keeps it in place. I have never thought of a heat shield as a particularly...

    I am building a small green house. I thought I would just share my progress as I get it together and useable. I had hoped this vinyl I found at Wal-Mart would work for the covering, but decided against it. I now plan to use a heavy grade construction grade plastic for now. We will see how it...

    So what do you think about growing sugarcane? It's not only a sweetener, as it can also be used to make paper, tools, and other materials. It needs lots of sun to make all that sugar, but is very easy to grow since it's a true grass. I think when I move to California after the SEALs, I'm going...

    I figured I'd share this. This is an easy one to make and something that could be used as an "intro" to friends or family that aren't preppers. Simply bring up the recent hurricane and point them to this. If they seem to be receptive, cool. The instructables site is great. It may require...

    Here's an interesting take on using solar and/or any heat energy (even from compost piles). Using the Ideal Gas Law, you create a small pressure difference (.5psi-1psi) in a large chamber using heat, then use that pressure to run a large machine that turns an alternator. This is very similar to...
