Its all hands on deck this week with the maple sap flowing like water faucets from the trees now. We are into late February and the maple trees are waking up. The 70 taps that I have out there are producing heavily.
Chris is here boiling the sap down for me each day. He wor
The other day I started the 11 HP log splitter engine using 5 supercapacitors from Amperics. I had to warm up the engine first though. Today I cold started the engine using 10 supercapacitors with no problem.
I first tried using five 400 Farad supercapacitors to start the e
I recently got 49 Amperics supercapacitors to experiment with. One of the projects I am working on is to start various engines around the homestead with supercapacitors. Today I started the 11 HP log splitter using five 400 Farad supercapacitors in series.
It is early February and the maple sap is flowing heavily already. I have never tapped this early before but I am happy that I did. We are boiling maple sap into syrup today and I am running around collecting the sap by the gallons.
I tapped the trees about two weeks ago al
I ordered some Milk Kefir grains quite some time ago and started to learn about their use and care. Now that we have used it daily for months, Melanie demonstrates how to use it and we share with you what we have learned about this healthy organic probiotic dairy product.
I am assembling the Quanta Magnetics Q3 Charge Accelerator toroidal section. This is the third and final section of the three stage pulse motor generator. I have the pulse motor and energizer section running already.
I have been running experiments on the pulse motor and ge
I have been tapping maple trees early this year due to an early warm spell that began already in January. I am still working with the Bedini Motor restoring lead acid batteries. And a beautiful gift arrived at the off grid homestead.
Since it turned warmer in mid January I
We have a warm spell of weather the past two weeks so I am tapping maple trees early this year. I am also restoring lead acid batteries for use on the off grid homestead in our greenhouse during the winter months.
First thing in the morning I had to sweep off the solar pane
Now that the Quanta Magnetics Q3 Charge Accelerator pulse motor section is finished and running I am performing various experiments with it for a while before moving on to building the energizer/generator section.
The Quanta Magnetics Q3 Charge Accelerator is a three part m
I got a couple dead car jump starter packs from a friend for free. I have recycled the electronics from the jump starter pack to use them as a lead acid battery charger and more.
My friend hauls scrap metal and I saw these in the back of his truck one day. He had removed th
It was snowing quite heavily today at the off grid homestead so I alternated between shoveling snow outside and working on the tiny house electrical wiring inside.
It started to snow early in the morning. We had some large fluffy snow flakes falling down. It was quite prett
I finished assembly of the Quanta Magnetics Q3 pulse motor section of the motor/generator and got it running for the first time. It took me quite a while to figure out the timing but eventually I got it.
I finished connecting the diodes and solid state relay to the metal pl
We are in the end of January 2017 and I have already started to tap my maple trees. The sap was flowing heavily on this day as well. It was busy today at the off grid homestead.
Normally the maple sap flows near the end of February to the beginning of April some time. It va
I have a lead acid battery that I just finished restoring on the old Bedini SSG (Simplified School Girl) motor. I just took it off the Bedini charge and let it rest all day. Already it is doing work at half an amp steady.
This was an old battery jump starter that was readin
The day started out with a clear blue sky and we had some awesome solar power production at the off grid homestead. I am still restoring lead acid batteries in our greenhouse with the Bedini motor. Chris is splitting fire wood outside.
The day alternated between sunny and b
