I installed a wireless electric 12 volt fishing trolling motor and installed it on the bow of our houseboat. Wow what a fantastic idea, as I need one desperately, however don't have the money for a commercial one. I am wondering how many pounds of thrust is required to get the bow to come around?Do you use the full 110 LBS of thrust in one short blast? I will probably never figure out the original name for Go-Karts but here’s a really cool DIY electric go-kart someone has made and you might want to refer it if you want to make your own in the near future.
This year, the Summer Engineering Workshop team was interested in making an electric go-kart. The site is very informative and even provides free circuit schematics for the electricity parts, I highly suggest you to check this one out.

With the cold season coming to a close I wanted to share one more survival craft that you can do in order to provide some off-grid heat to a small insulated area with just a candle! The basic purpose of this heater is to capture the heat given off of a candle flame and to concentrate it into a steel and ceramic radiator assembly.
Heat rising from a burning candle (or electric lamp) is first trapped in the Steel Inner Core and surrounding Ceramic Inner Module. The Outer Surface gets VERY WARM to HOT and gently begins to Radiate Heat into your home or office. Just place the washers and nuts in the right combination as the image and you’ll be good to go. Then just put the three braces together with the middle brace facing the opposite direction and bend the outside two just enough to support the heater. I decided to test out the heater with the bacon-grease candle I had made (check out Homemade Lamps from Everyday Objects to learn how to make your own). After burning the heater for around 6 hours it seemed to be putting out only a small amount of heat (a decent amount of heat was pouring out from underneath though). Despite the less-than-optimal testing conditions, still, in no way would it heat up your home (or even a normal size room for that matter), but in an enclosed area like your car I could see it having some benefit.
Even though the heater doesn’t seem all that effective, making this contraption was far from a waste of time.
It seems to me that if you have these things already, you could make them, and if you have to burn the candles for light, you might as well use it as the heater too and get a tiny bit of heat if at all possible.
The concept is true and it is a sufficient amount of heat to survive but alcohol is a much better and cheaper way of heating since it burns hotter than a candle. Place 2 bricks on each side of the candle that is sitting on a brick and 2 in the back, like a little fireplace,Put the Terra cotta pots on top of the bricks. I just wanted to let your readers know that I placed a post on the tiny house blog about indoor air quality in tiny houses. I’d encourage the readers using fuel to cook, heat or heat hot water inside of a home, RV, tent of living space to find out all you can about CO.


To capture the heat lost through the bottom of the candle, why not purchase another ceramic piece as the base? Hey you could always make up like 12 of these things, hang like 3 on each wall, and that may provide enough heat to keep your room warm. I have an apartment and in the morning the temp is 63F, I bought a huge 3 wik candle from walmart for $12 and burned this under a ceramic flower pot all night. It was not intended to heat a house, however I believe it would warm up my cold bathroom quite nicely! Detailed diagrams of the dimensions and measurements of Items 1-5 as listed in Drawing 4 (Exploded View) are contained in this Drawing. Safety: Please note that without brakes - this go-kart can be very dangerous, and the Author accepts no responsbility for any hurt or injury caused.
The above drawings and animations were done using the SolidWorks Modelling program, and took approximately 1 day to complete. I had been thinking about how to make an inexpensive bow thruster since the commercial ones were too much for our budget.It has been one of the BEST THINGS that I could have added to our small single engine 40 ft houseboat. Like everyone to drive this boat was hard VERY hard specially once you do the modification and the motor is not deep in the water to stop this house is no joke amen to dock it.I live in a very narrow water channel 35 feet at the most with boathouses on every edge both sides in every house off Dunns Creek off of St Johns River so narrow that I can't have nothing hanging out of the structure. I just thought we could wrap it all up in one by showing ANYTHING homemade that could save anyone money or make someones ice fishing trip easier. After some time, the ceramic surface will act as a thermal mass and begin to radiate the captured thermal energy into your room or office.
Heat synergistically builds up and “boils out” of the Ceramic Inner Core into the Ceramic Middle Core. You mentioned the rocket stove, but what about a homemade alcohol stove as the power source? I believe if you combine a candle setup with a PC-fan assembly running on a 12v adapter, or a USB port, you would get a decent result. In these plans, spoked wheels are used, as this allows the driver to to turn the wheels by hand, much like on a wheelchair. Only simple common tools are required, along with some materials easily found at home, or which can be purchased very cheaply in a DIY (do-it-yourself) , or hobby shop. The front axle support member is connected to the chassis at the front via a 12mm Bolt, allowing it to rotate right or left. There is a flash animation on the right - showing the disassembly and assembly of the wooden go-kart showing every nut, bolt, washer and piece of timber used to make the kart. The 60degree pointed front end is not essential, and can be shaped when the go-kart is finished and assembled. Two of these 25mm thick padding pieces amount to 50mm, and sit on top of the rear axle support, on either side of the Main Chassis Member.
These can be obtained from old railings or gates, or can be purchased at a local hardware or DIY store. With the Front Axle supports however, an additional Counterbore (a large enough hole to allow the head of a bolt to go deep into the timber, underneath the Metal Axle) needs to be drilled. A 5mm diameter steel nail can instead be placed through the hole, and bent at either end to form an S shape. These blocks act as a safety device to prevent the front axle from turing too far which could cause the kart to overturn, or which could trap a drivers feet causing injury. On later pictures the plug is already installed and the batteries are already down below the deck. Capacitors store electrical potential energy; much less than a battery, but you can charge and discharge them more quickly.


So, we wanted to see if we could very simply integrate an ultracapacitor into a stylish electric go-kart.
A metal teacandle holder in the small saucer fits perfactly, and the heater unit sets on the flatheads otherwise used for a pot support. A lot of the effect is in air circulation, so it doesn’t just go straight to the ceiling.
How do you believe you can make people think your smart when you don’t even pay attention to what your reading? Normally - the steering mechanism is very simple, and can be done by the drivers feet, or by using a length of rope to rotate the front axle, much like on old stage coaches seen on television.
The distance between the front axle and the rear of the kart is not critical, however there should be enough room for the front axle to pivot without the front wheels hitting the seating area of the wooden go-kart as seen in Drg 2. As will be seen in later detailed diagrams, there are additional holes in the middle of the Metal Axles to recieve a Round Wire nail to secure them inside the Wooden Support, and to prevent them from rotating or moving from right to left. No more waiting for the wind to calm down.To make the bow thruster, I ended up using two Motorguide or Minn Kota 55lb thrust 12 volt electric trolling motors.
After servicing and screwing it back down, the access pipe can be drained through a valve in the side.The entire thruster head can be unbolted pulled into the boat through the hole if necessary, which I did once. With kind regards, Tom.Reply - AnswerI would imagine that he wired them in parallel, and used a winch solenoid or reversing solenoid. The video is self explanatory as without the electric trolling motor I can't even try to get the houseboat down the channel without hitting someone, my house is at the end AFTER THE BEND!!. Research into automotive applications of capacitors (in hybrids, for example) has led to development of ultracapacitors with increasing energy density and decreasing price. One of the simplest ways to do so is to use it exclusively to store energy recaptured from the kart as it brakes.
The heat may be in a better place (near the floor and your feet) compared to if it rises to the ceiling though. Typically on simple wooden kart, or soap-box-carts, there are no brakes, and as a result - are to be used for slow speeds only. This is to allow the head of the bolt to go underneath the Metal Axle (otherwise the front metal axle would have to be in two pieces). The wooden go-kart can be rotated in 3D - allowing you to look underneath, or from the back etc.
Also, when teacandles are finished I reuse the tins to make fireknots for my stove ( biomass firestarters ).
While it’s likely not the best solution for full-size autos, we wanted to make a tangible demonstration that the technology is closer to reality than many might think. I used the 50" tubes to bring the wiring above the waterline, and enter the hull through some liquid-tight electrical fittings.The trolling motors use about 60 amps total, and I have them connected to our house batteries, since the thruster only gets used for 10-30 seconds at a time. Everything fits in my trunk in a container the size of a child’s shoebox ( when not in use, that is). It's great to see people using their ingenuity to solve problems.Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their related houseboat experiences and tips.
