THE BUDDING SCIENTIST WITHIN YOU
From the time I was 10 years old, I wanted to be an inventor and scientist. I had a microscope set, a chemistry set, my dad’s workbench full of hand tools, saws, drills, etc. I remember when I was 12, trying to build a hammock to support the plaster cast on my broken arm. I loved science and thought the greatest job in the world was a research scientist. I imagined that I would solve some major world problem with one of my inventions. Well, it hasn’t happened yet. But, it doesn’t mean that I am not still trying.
I have a full time job working at a desk job, but when the weekend comes, I am in my garage trying to fulfill my boyhood vision of solving a major world problem. I have mostly focused on the alternative energy area.
Here are a few things that I have worked on:
About 5 or 6 years ago, I watched a 1995 UK video called “IT RUNS ON WATER”
In that movie (at +20:30), among other inventors, is a story of a real American patriot, garage inventor, Stanley Meyer. Because of the disruption in America caused by the energy crisis in 1974, Stanley decided to solve the energy problem using water as a fuel. He eventually was able to split water into its two parts of Hydrogen and oxygen very efficiently. Hydrogen is a very flammable fuel, and Oxygen makes fuel burn. If you don’t believe me, just watch the news clips of the Hydrogen filled Hindenburg disaster in 1937. Stan Meyer discovered how to efficiently split the water using less energy than anyone else had before. By the end of the 1980’s, He was able to install his invention on a dune-buggy, with a standard Volkswagen engine, and power it with Hydrogen and Oxygen (called HHO or Browns gas) which he created while he was driving. He drove the dune buggy on the streets and roads with only water in the tank as the source of fuel producing only water vapor as exhaust. As with many successful inventors who challenge the Energy Monopoly of the Oil and Gas companies, just as he was ready to go into production with his water-car invention, he was poisoned and died before you and I got the technology.
I was inspired by Stan Meyer’s story and I built several water splitting HHO devices in my own garage, and they all worked, just not as efficient as Stan’s. You can do it too, here’s how.
Just take a 9 volt battery, connect it with wires from each terminal, separated, and put the bare wires into some salt water. The salt will act as an electrolyte and allow the voltage and current to travel from the positive to the negative wires. This will cause bubbles to form on each wire. The bubbles on the negative wire will be Hydrogen and the bubbles on the positive wire will be Oxygen.
WARNING: Be careful to do this with good ventilation because these are flammable gasses and will explode with great force if a nearby flame or spark ignites them.
I built several of these water splitting HHO devices in my garage and was able to produce a significant amount of Hydrogen/Oxygen fuel with them. I even installed an HHO unit on my car and improved my gasoline MPG significantly. My car from the factory is supposed to get a max of 28 MPG on the highway. With my water splitting device installed, I drove from Phoenix to Kansas City, Missouri and got 36 MPG on several tanks of freeway driving. I was never able to get the efficiency that Stan Meyer got, but I proved to myself that it does work. There are many others who are working on this across the world. Two other successful inventors who can split water efficiently are Daniel Dingle from the Philippines and Bob Boyce from the USA. I challenge you to Google these guys and see them driving their water powered cars.
Another garage project was purchasing my own solar panels and installing them on my house myself. Now, I am producing 2KW of alternative power whenever the sun shines and reducing my electrical dependency. I also had solar hot water installed on the roof, and in the summer, my solar water system produces steaming hot water from the faucets without using gas or electric heating.
My next garage project is modifying a Rocket Stove heater for my workshop. I discovered an invention called the Rocket Stove and it burns twigs and small sticks so well, there is no smoke from the stove. I found this technology to be very interesting so I built one in my garage and it works great. When the stove starts, it produces a little smoke until it gets warmed up, then the exhaust becomes clean and smokeless. The stove is constructed so that the small sticks are burnt in a horizontal chamber and the flue pipe is vertical (“L” shaped burning chamber and flue). These chamber and flue pipes are housed in an insulated case which keeps the heat contained so the flue temperatures are allowed to get very high. The high temperatures ignite all the smoke particles, leaving a clean exhaust. This stove will allow you to cook a meal on a handful of twigs and sticks. For example, the last time that I ran the Rocket stove, I used a 6-inch long 2X4 scrap that I had in my garage and split it into 15 or 20 small sticks about the size of pencils. I fed them into the stove’s horizontal burn chamber and lit it with a match and paper. As the sticks begin to burn and heat the flue, the intense heat in the flue causes a very strong updraft which causes the flame to swirl within the flue, causing the sound of a rocket engine, thus the name. It is very cool to watch and I encourage you to become your own garage builder of rocket stoves. This is an incredible stove for camping because you can pick up small twigs and scraps from the surrounding camp area and prepare your dinner while being environmentally benign.
Anyway, my next project is to convert this rocket stove to heat my workshop this winter. I plan to put copper coils at the top where the flames come out and circulate water thru the pipes to a radiator inside my workshop. Here is a picture of the rocket stove I built.

Another garage project that I want to tell you about is the GEET fuel reactor that I built. A few years ago, I discovered a garage inventor named Paul Pantone and his GEET fuel process. Paul has patented his discovery and has put plans for building his fuel reactor on the internet for free. http://geetinternational.com/Free_Plans.html http://geetinternational.com/GEET%20-%20Small%20Engine%20Conversion%20Plans%5B1%5D.pdf
What his invention does is to replace a conventional motor’s carburetor with a device to refine/crack/break-down unconventional fuels (crude oil, soda pop, battery acid, water, etc…) into a fuel that is similar to propane or natural gas. It uses the wasted heat from the engine to refine unconventional fuels into this light gas that will run any standard gasoline motor. The process works like this. You put gasoline into a container (fuel tank) that is modified so that air is forced to bubble up from beneath the fuel causing some of the fuel to vaporize. This vapor is carried from the sealed container via tubing to the GEET fuel reactor. The GEET fuel reactor is basically two pipes, one inside the other. The exhaust from a running gasoline engine is very hot. Paul placed the incoming fuel line inside the exhaust pipe to heat the fuel vapors before going into the engine’s intake. This process of hot exhaust going out of the engine in one direction while cold fuel vapors traveling the opposite direction inside the exhaust pipe causes an electrical storm within the fuel vapors that convert the fuel into a clean gas similar to natural gas or propane. The result is a very fuel efficient motor which produces very, very clean exhaust, without soot or carbon. Once the motor is hot from being run on gasoline vapors, then other unconventional fuels (crude oil, soda pop, battery acid, water, etc…) can be used to run the motor. Many of these unconventional fuels can be obtained for free or inexpensively.
I bought the materials described in the free internet plans from a local plumbing supply store and built my own GEET fuel reactor (cost about $100). A friend gave me his broken lawnmower (bad carburetor), and I installed my GEET fuel reactor on that 3.5 hp Briggs & Stratton motor. I was able to start the engine using gasoline vapors with the GEET fuel reactor on the first attempt. After it warmed up, I added some black used motor oil to the existing gasoline so that I had a 50/50 mixture of used motor oil and gasoline. I restarted the motor and ran it for 20 to 30 minutes on that mixture. Next, I took a large cup and scooped water out of my swimming pool and added it to my fuel mixture. The mixture was now 25% gasoline, 25% used motor oil, and 50% swimming pool water. I restarted the motor on this mixture and ran the motor for 30 minutes before stopping the motor. (Below is a video of the 25/25/50 mix running my motor
). The manual control valves for air and fuel delivery are very sensitive when adjusting to get the correct air/fuel mix for smooth engine performance. I wound up killing it frequently until I got the air/fuel mix adjusted properly.
Anyway, this is a great technology that anyone can build and use. I plan to build another GEET reactor and put it on my 110/220 Volt gasoline generator. If this works well, I will have my cabin in the woods powered by alternative fuels.
There are many other technologies, already developed, that can change the world. You can build them yourself, but you must take action, get in your garage and build them. These technologies need to be replicated and developed by freedom oriented people. We need to bring them into common use because the established energy monopolies have a vested interest in keeping these technologies away from the marketplace.
