Electricity solutions from harborfreight.

Post by fortified in florida » Sat Nov 12, 2005 4:00 am

Thumbing through my new harbor freight i noticed several things that peeked

my zombie interests. Not only was there an array of usefull 12vdc tools

(compressors, spotlights, meatgrinders et cetera) but then there was a larger

selection of solar panels. Now one thing that caught my eye was the 20kw

generator! Yeah, thats a lot and yeah its expensive(4000 of the top of my

head) but it's diesil powered and with that much power you wont need to run

it long. Several ideas i got from this were that you could use a press(also

available from harborfreight) to squeeze your own vegetable oil to use as

fuel/cooking ingredient. The other thing i thought of was to fire it up in an

emergency and have a land of the dead "throat" if you wanted the added

security. Well it was a late post but i had to do it before i fell asleep and

didnt remember anything. Later.

Fuck diesel, use a gas generator, converted to run on alcohol. Build a still and you have all the fuel you'll need. 8)

But I was thinknig that you could find veg oil in a large variety of places.
Alcohol could work too.

So the solution would be to obviously get one of each :wink: :lol: . Or just dettach the diesel motor and be able to attach the gasoline one.

Heck while were at it use solar panels to put a current through water and have a hydrogen generator as well. You won't waste water and you could man power the electrolysis process.

Only problem is that this could get very expensive. So check to see all tax cuts and build to live off the grid in the first place while having access to the grid.
