How to create an air compressor

In this video you can see how I built a 34 cfm aircompressor and mounted it on an LP tank. I have an excess of air after doing this.

How to repair a totaled car

My sister flipped this car across two lanes of the interstate. It should have been totaled but my father couldnt bring himself to do that, so he made me fix it. The only thing on the car that is original is the decklid. Everything else has been replaced. Watch the video and you'll see what I am talking about.

How to fix your a/c clutch on a powerstroke

I show how to fix the clutch on your powertroke air conditioner. I also show how to remove the shim thats in between the end plate and the rest of the clutch.

How to make your powerstroke cool more for abt $2.50

Here I show you how to make your air conditioner cool better by replacing the orifice tube.

Bill Maher

I just could not resist posting this because it makes a lot of sense to me. I'm all for cutting everything that he talked about.

Difference between a good and cheap welder

As the title says this is basically a video that I made about my welders. As you notice from first sight, the miller us a much bigger machine than the hobart.

In this one I fix my trucks air conditioner. I actually had to replace the condenser, the clutch plate on the compressor, and I put a slightly different orifice tube in it as well. It is nowhere near stock (the orifice tube) and actually allows you to cool much better than it could before. In case you know nothing about air conditioning, the orifice tube is what allows for the rapid expansion of the freon gas in the system. The condenser was junk with tons of little rocks in it and many fins doubled over not allowing for much air to get through it. The clutch plate was just junk, you can see in the video how "scored" up it was. One other thing I needed to do was take the shim out of it completely. This is something that most non-mechanic types know nothing about, so watch closely and hopefully you might learn someting.

Repairing the battery charger

Well, apparently I managed to fix my battery charger. What had happened to this charger was that I was actually trying to start my HD-21 bulldozer and had placed this unit on the "boost" setting and the starter switch became stuck. So before I could get off of the bulldozer and shut the charger off, it managed to shuck both diodes. Now if you do not know anything about diodes, whenever a diode fails like this it appears to you as an "open" circuit. A good way to think about them is a one way valve that only allows current to flow in one direction. Believe it or not, this is how they explain them in engineering school. But anyhow, when a diode fails like this you will not get anything to come out of the diode, but you will have ac on the incoming side. Now I will let you watch the video...
