Tankless Water Heater and Outdoor Shower


Eccotemp L5 Portable Tankless Water Heater and Outdoor Shower

Enjoy instant hot water wherever you go with the Eccotemp L5 Portable Tankless Water Heater. Generating more than 1 gallon of hot water per minute, this compact, energy-efficient heater creates a more comfortable and convenient outdoor experience for you and your family. The water heater comes with everything you need, including the adapters required to attach any standard garden hose nozzle and propane tank (tank not included).

Lightweight for Easy Portability
At 13 pounds, the Eccotemp heater travels easily to cabins, barns, and almost any off-the-grid location. Use it to take a hot shower at a campsite, rinse off after a day at the beach, or to wash your pet. Its compact size keeps it out of the way, allowing for a convenient set-up outside your home for use by the pool or hot tub.

Easy Setup and Operation
With all necessary fittings and adapters included, setting up the Eccotemp water heater is a cinch. To operate, the heater connects to a standard garden hose nozzle and propane tank (tank not included). Thanks to its automatic ignition, burners come on as soon as the water flows, so you don't waste a drop.

Simply turn on the tap--the heater produces hot water within seconds--and set the temperature to a comfortable level. Choose from multiple spray settings to select your preferred water pressure. The heater provides a temperature range of 80 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, starting at a .5 gallons per minute (GPM) flow rate and going up to 1.4 GPM. After 20 minutes, the water heater shuts off automatically for added peace of mind.

Battery-Operated for Use Off the Grid
Because the heater's flame ignites by battery, the Eccotemp is a handy backup water source when electricity is not readily available, making it ideal for use in emergency situations, as well as on camping trips. The heater requires two D-cell batteries (not included). The unit requires a minimum of 20 PSI of water pressure and maximum of 100 PSI.

This Eccotemp Water Heater is rated for outdoor use only.

Survival Gear- Bug out Bag Essentials- Mylar Blankets

Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets (Pack of 10)

Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets (Pack of 10)

This product is probably what you think it is. One of those loud, crinkly, reflective "space" type blankets. They're fairly cheap, and you get a lot of them. They're very useful for keeping a person warm if you know how to use them.

Some people complain that it doesn't keep them warm at all. This is most likely because they aren't using it properly. There are better articles for this information than this review, but essentially.. This blanket prevents heat-loss from radiation (which is how the majority of our body heat is lost). Radiation is when heat radiates away from its source. This is where the product shines: it allows hot pockets of air to form between you and the blanket. It doesn't do much to protect against conduction since it's so thin. Conduction occurs when heat transfers from one place to another by touching. When you grab an ice-cube, you are losing heat because of conduction. Similarly, if you are in a very windy area, while the blanket itself is wind-proof, the cold air can get under and inside the blanket, stealing away your warmth.

As such, when using this blanket, you should squat down and wrap it around you. By laying on the bare ground, there is no "dead air space" for the hot air to collect so, by the process of conduction, your body looses heat through the ground. This product works really well as a sort of "base layer" type of blanket. If you have a sleeping pad and sleeping bag, line the insides of your sleeping bag with one of these and you'll be toasty in no time. Just be sure not to start sweating too much, because of hypothermia and stuff. Even without those fancy sleeping bags, one of these covered by a wool blanket will keep you very warm. Just remember not to wrap the blanket to tightly around you. It is instinctive when you want to get warm, but it'll decrease the effectiveness and may rip it since it's so frail.

Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Routers


Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Routers (Complete Illustrated Guides)

This book, in the "Complete Illustrated Guide" format covers one of the most popular tools in woodworking and home improvement in a step-by-step, highly visual presentation. The router is so popular because it can do an amazing variety of tasks. Bits and cutters can shape hundreds of profiles for edge treatments and moldings. Routers (especially the plunge type) can cut joinery from simple tongue and groove to interlocking and decorative joints. Mounted under a flat surface and guided by a fence, the router becomes a versatile shaping machine capable of safely spinning large bits for making large moldings and raising panels as well as more accurate joinery and shaping operations. Router users have developed hundreds of clever jigs for repetitive and dedicated operations. New bits, accessories, and enhancements for the router are constantly under development extending the use of this machine even further. This book covers all the practical router techniques as well as router table choice, construction and use and the techniques for popular jigs and fixtures.

24-Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw

Chainmate CM-24SSP 24-Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw With Pouch.


Chainmate CM-24SSP 24-Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw With Pouch

Previously available only to the military and professionals, now everyone can enjoy the speed and convenience of owning a Chainmate survival saw. Flexible, chain blade saw comes in belt loop pouch. Cuts fast & easy. This thing EATS wood and weighs nothing!! It takes a little bit of effort but you can chew through a hardwood tree half a foot thick in literally a couple minutes; half that if you use two people (one on each end).
My only advice would be to spray it down with some wd-40 before you head out to smooth out the action and reduce kinks.

High Speed Steel Wood Lathe Chisel Turning Set


PSI Woodworking LCSIXW High Speed Steel Wood Lathe Chisel Turning Set, 6-Piece


PSI Woodworking LCSIXW High Speed Steel Wood Lathe Chisel Turning Set, 6-Piece

* Premium long lasting HSS blades with beautifully turned and stained hardwood handles and brass ferrules
* Blades range from 6.5-Inch to 9-Inch In length
* Chisels range in overall length from 16-3/4-Inch to 22-3/8-Inch
* Includes 3/8-Inch spindle gouge, 7/8-Inch roughing gouge, 1-Inch oval skew chisel, 3/8-Inch bowl gouge, 3/16-Inch diamond parting tool, 3/4-Inch round nose scraper
* Comes in an attractive wooden display box
The handles are a great length which provides plenty of leverage and are not loose.
Since the HSS is soft it takes a new edge very quickly. All 6 tools can be brought to hair popping sharp in about 10 mins with a couple of bench stones.
Once sharpened they work almost as well as my carbide tools. Nearly effortless cutting for much longer than I would expect from cheap HSS. (After putting a very fine edge with a set of bench stones)
Price is about half of what other sets of similar caliber sell for.
I dont think you'll find a better set on amazon. If I were to upgrade from this set I'd buy a full set of carbide tools but I dont use them enough to warrant the 3 or 4 fold price increase.
