What do you see happening for this New Year?

Just hoping everyone has a few words to share about the past year and what they feel is overlooking us for the future New Year.  I think there is a lot more disassociation with people wanting to be…Continue

That's an amazing vid, Two Birds!  Note he has used it to forge a knife; melt small amounts of precious metals; make jewelry.  Another vid shows a garbage can size... for self sufficiency, can't imagine needing bigger than that! ...outside of a kiln, that is.

Anyone who has need for a small forge, this is an awesome video.

Looks great my friend :)

Comment by ☯ Firelight ☮ ♥ ☼ on March 19, 2015 at 6:18pm that's a link to my setup. A friend came to visit and made this one. I've other videos as well. My greatest success was my solar heater. We have shaved off 2/3 of our cost from last year this time.

thanks firelight and two birds, I have 1 big battery  but I think it bit the dust. I have 3 15 watt panels and a 400, watt inverter.  so I guess it will be a new start. hum I guess ill have to think about it some more. peace

Comment by Two Birds on March 19, 2015 at 10:26am

Firelight has the right idea...a combination works best. The biggest thing I would recommend is having enough batteries to store the power and a good voltage regulator/ power unit.

Sour, I use both because the wind don't always blow and the sun doesn't shine. But they support each other very well.

Comment by sour daddy on March 18, 2015 at 9:53am

Just a bit of info concerning gasoline/ diesel/ etc. I read a report that although crude oil is currently rising at about 13%, gasoline is rising at 137% and expected to get even worse. So if you haven't found alternative fuels, now might be the time to look into it....
