Heat Pump

Has anyone attempted building a homemade heat pump?  Maybe one used as a hot water heater only? What are the challenges that prevent a DIYer from building one from scratch?

Homemade rubber lint roller

I go through lint rollers like crazy. I hate loose hair. Makes me gag. I saw the infomercial for the new Mr.Sticky rubber lint roller you wash off and its sticky enough like the tape ones. That would save me about a million dollars a lifetime...give or take. Problem is the set is 29$ not bad...but if I could save that money and use it on...1/18th tank of gas that would be so helpful. So , someone, please help me ? Get me started, middle, end, a piece anything. Everyone on this site is brilliant. we could control the world=> Lets start with my rubber lint roller!

Homemade Aerogarden

I think someone should make an instructable on how to make a homemade Aerogarden. I think this would be a fantastic add. I've heard that if you were to make your own and replace the light it uses with a High Pressure Sodium or High Intensity Discharge it would work a lot faster/better.

Storing electricity in a homemade rechargeable battery

Storing electricity in homemade rechargeable battery ... I've read lots of things about cranking the shaft of a conventional motor to create electricity. Can the electricity be stored for later use in a homemade rechargeable battery? Also, does anyone have an idea on how to make such a rechargeable battery? Thanks.

Homemade Water Fountain Help

Homemade Water Fountain Help So I am doing a project for my fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha, here at Ohio University. I have $150 and an awesome idea, but I am not sure how to approach it. I received this picture my dad found on the internet and I want to replicate it because it'll be cheap and fairly easy: As you can see in the pic, it is a 3 tier water fountain made of kitty pools and I would like to say laundry baskets. I love the idea of the water draining into the bottom pools and that is pretty starightforward - drill holes in the top pools. However, like any other fountain, you need a pump to bring the cold water back to the top. Again, my entire budget is $150. So the pools will be like $10-20 each, and same with two baskets. I'm pretty good with tools, so if construction of any sort needs to be done, by all means. Again, I'm not familiar with pumps, but I don't need anything extravagant. Also, our fraternity colors are gold, purple, and green. It would be sick to paint the water fountain with some cheap, waterproof paint. I can go over $150 a little if need be, but my budget is very limited - which is half the fun with this! Final thing, this needs to be able to be taken down and stored away when we're not using it. So nothing can be permanently attached. I assume then we'd have to cut holes in the middle of the pools and laundry baskets for the pump to go to the top. But then we would need some sort of sealant on the insides of the pool to keep the water in. Thanks for any and all help. I'm new to the website, and I look forward to using it more often as I see some other cool things on here!!

Making a dry sauna heater with parts from a 120v hot plate

I have a small closed in shower (31" X 31") and have sealed the 6" opening over the door. It makes for a great steam room. However, I love very hot dry saunas. I have been wondering if I could make a small heater placed in the corner with one or more single burner hot plates and stones. I am wondering if this could be done safely if the AC lines are totally protected. I could easily turn of the power when showering. I welcome any feedback.

Another Baby Bear knife

I found some more metal and decided to make a third Baby Bear knife. Thanks to Alan Folts for the original design. He sells these now and I did not like the price, so I decided to make my own. Here is a picture of the semi-finished knife. It has curly(flame) maple handles that I found in the wood pile. I would like to make a Kydex sheath for it, but have not found a source that will let me buy a few or one sheet  at a good price. Still looking. Anyone know of a good source please let me know. I only need a few sheets to start with. Carbon graphite looks cool.

Why are there not more instructables about building homemade recumbent bicycles?

homemade paint gun/ airbrush

Ok well me and a friend of mine have been experimenting with making our own paint gun. we are doing for two reasons. well we want to airbrush some things but we don't have one adn we don't have much money, and we need something to do so it occupies time. we have gone throught many trials and errors and quite a few have failed. we now have one that works acually pretty well. it composes of blowgun attached to an aircompresser, there is a "t" fitting at the other end of the blowgun, at one part of the "t" fitting is a little attachment that goes to a small water bottle, and at part of the water bottle is a little nozzle(nozzle2). than at the other part of the "t" fitting is another nozzle (nozzle1). those nozzles are really close to each other. you put the paint in the water bottle and supply air to it than it paints(sometimes) i was just wondering if anyone knew how to make it better or had another idea for a paint gun? any comment that is related to the topic is welcome and thanks for any feedback. i am sorry if that is confusing.
