    DIY Portable Mini Refrigerator

    Here is a thought for future plans as cold air sinks and hot air rises try putting the equipment on top and gain more space in side while keeping the power supply on the bottom in the back !! And it you did not think of this add a charging port to recharge the battery !!! And a srap to Cary it from one place to another such as a fishing dock or boat or even a campsite !!! I think the foil foam board used as insulation might serve better than Styrofoam !! Keep creating

  • Power in the Apocalypse (How to build a Wood-Gasifier)

    With correct size and angle you can get up to 1000 degrees or more lead has a higher melting point than 450

    On. This comment you say over a fire have you ever concidered using the sun ?? Any light reflecting item such as a parabolic dish or a freisenell lens like those found in old time image projectors that are really the same as a magnifying glass with rings !! Some can get one spot hot enough to melt lead or solider !!! Or star a fire :-D

    27 Led Light Mod

    I saw your response to my statement and yes an unrelated power could over time cause heating as the batteries are charged with out discharging but as most older cig lighter are only active while the key is on that was seldom a problem but your set up is slightly different as a power outage or a disconnect from the main power would serve to discharge that energy keeping things safer as I am trained from my youth in both electronic and electricity I know a few ways that most here would not !! Like your regulated power supply should have a circuit for protecting rechargeable batteries where a car generator would not be so kind to a nice over a lead acid battery !!

    Larry I grew up in a tv repair shop so I know the dangers far more than most but as I was playing the radio that used a configuration of to 8 batteries it was necessary to have rechargeable batteries to keep from burning out the power circuit with 12 to 16 volts depending on the lead acid battery charge and as I was next to the radio I could smell if it was getting warm and take out a battery or unplug the cable !!!

    the very fact that you said take out the batteries shows that your mod will charge them I once did something like this for a portable radio to use while I was driving a truck with no radio and was tired of buying d cells so I wired it up to use the cig lighter and put in rechargeable it ran for years and my battery cost was far less

    That's a good start so when you decide to go dual blades use two matching gears placed tooth to valley as one turns left the other turns right and you have your counter turning blades and a better gripping power !! It has been suggested grinding up soda bottles to make the filling but then you will need a way to melt and extrude the plastic !! Good luck
