One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
Up to this point, all my work has been done with the oxyacetylene torch. And I can honestly say many works to come are going to be done by way of the torch. But I have always being curious about arc welding. Especially since the weld is instantaneous because of the 10000 degree heat. This is especially useful in projects that would take a considerable amount of time to complete with a torch such as building a welding table.
Now that you have the place and the tools you will need to get some electronics to tear down. There are several different ways to approach this so we will review them below. One of the most powerful tools that I have found is a simple form letter that is sent to various companies in my area. I sat down with my wife and created this letter outlining what our company does and how it would benefit the companies that we were contacting. The response is simply amazing.
First, let me tell you what turns me on the most about a really, really clean bike. I drive up to a friend's place and get the same reaction I've gotten since I started riding 38 years ago, "man is that all you ever do is clean that thing"? No, I reply, my wife cleans it for me. It's worth it just to see them turn that funny shade of green. No, my wife doesn't clean my bike and that isn't all I ever do. I'm like anyone else I'd rather ride the thing. So why don't we get right to it, shall we?
These units are simple in design as they consist of a 12 volt gel cell battery plus a couple of heavy duty 400 amp cables and rubber insulated clamps. These are extremely useful items as the batteries they have are powerful enough with its 400 amps to actually jump start a vehicle when its starting battery is totally dead. Its peek power rating is approximately 900 Amps. There is AC adapter which comes with it for charging the boost battery as well as a 12 volt cord for charging it from your car as you drive.
