  • Portable 12V Air Conditioner --Cheap and Easy!

    I made my first ice water AC bout 12 or 14 yrs ago for use in our small RV. used a semi large Igloo icechest- helt 4 bags of ice, put about a gallon of water in it,boat builg pump, used hose to go to heater core from pump then return to chest. Made a cardboard box sized to heater core size and put a 12v fan at other end, pulled air through H. core rather than try to push air through core. Used one night in the boones and nearly froze....... No Fooling.. they work folks.............. lol

  • How to Build a 6000 Gallon Water Tank

    Fathin: What he is saying is that there is 7.5 gallons in 1 cubic foot of space.. Or 1 cubic foot holds 7.5 gallons of water etc... OK...

    For the sheet metal, you could try a commercial air condition installers. They use galvanized sheet metal to make duck work to send air through to everywhere in the building. Just a though..

    Homemade TV Antenna

    I have made two of these and they work outstanding. 26 chanles.

    Didn't get to finish my first attempt. ha Made with a hula hoop cut down to 26" ID and just used romex solid copper wire cut to 40 3/4" after forming an "eye" in the end- inserting into the hula hoop then hooking a 300 to 75 ohm matching transformer, it's up on two 10 ft pvc pipes swaying in the wind. Working like GangBusters.......... ha longest distance is around 20 miles, not to far..

    Cheap Black & Decker 18Volt Battery

    Hi Judy72649I use a Dewalt 9.7 to 18 volt charger for everything. It says it's a 9.7v to 18v charger.. I just opened it up and soldered wires to the positive and negative terminals inside and drilled a hole for the wires to exit then put alligator clips on the other end and marked them for polarity, then hook to any battery in that voltage range and you got it.. Works for me!!!!!! Phil
