Re: Back-up Generators

Just stumbled across this, a guy who uses a small generator off grid to weld with. Note that he says you need a 6 kw unit to weld up to 200 amps, that is roughly in line with my experience, previously I was saying 5kw up to 150 amps at the arc. Also note he is mig welding I believe with 035 flux cor...

Re: alcohol for fuel?

Here is how I would use alcohol to power a engine....make some and lets just say its one litre at 90%. This has a retail value of something like 50.00 dollars, its different in each province, but for the sake of argument...50 bucks. Ok, I would put out the word that I will trade this 1 litre of alco...

Re: alcohol for fuel?

I suggest you try to make some, I suspect by the time you do this (the effort and work) you will say like hell I am burning this in a engine! you will mix it with coke instead. Also I have never seen myself anyone producing 100% alcohol. The best I have ever seen in the real world by people who know...

Re: Back-up Generators

Welding takes less power than I thought. When I read "100-200 amps, I had always thought that was at 220V or something LOL. . The job of the welding machine is to take that high voltage 120-240 and step it down to the 20-30 volt range for welding, and to step up the amperage. You cant weld at ...

Re: Back-up Generators

You are not welding off your batteries, but mostly off your solar panels, Free power. I will assume for anyone with a off grid house you will have at least 2000 watts of solar power very likely much more as panels are so cheap now days. For much of the welding I do my arc voltage is roughly 23 volts...

Re: Back-up Generators

I have a small propane Onan genset. Regarding propane as a stationary engine fuel in say a generator. Its a first rate fuel....it does not go bad, I have found propane engines to be able to sit unused for a long time and they fire right up. If you have those big tanks 800-1000 gallon or something li...

Re: Rifle Rookie

just a few but I also own a single shot .22 cooie That's something I haven't heard in a while.The good old cooie. I would bet that in 22 put more meat on the table than many things in the old days. I highly recommend those. They are rock paper scissors simple and reliable. Dirt cheap. I haven't bou...

Re: JUST WONDER

Henry when I first seen your post I thought, he must have lost his mind! Forget about animals, there is no way in hell I would let just anyone manage my property, I wouldn't let someone use my wood stove that I didn't know was already experienced with one. I want but don't have animals yet just beca...

Re: Our families progress!

I had to re-read your post as I would have sworn you said inheritance, but I cant dispute that the word isn't there, just the word tax, So I stand corrected on that. Though it was strongly implied, other wise you have just been saying, the amount paid at death in taxes is the same as if you liquidat...
