coming soon DIY plans

though not of the steampunk variety specifically, these plans from the F.I.R.E. org. (Foundation for Interplanetary Research and, Exploration) will show how to use sunlight, simple supplies like MDF and aluminum foil, or cut old mirrors, to reflect this light all into one place in your backyard, to melt down metals and even stones, build an isolation chamber around your focal point so you can smelt down things like sand and prep it to be used for making solar cells, and build generators that use no permanent magnets yet work better than the ones that use expensive rare earth magnets, from stuff like dead inline skates, and general hardware store supplies!

you can follow us (I am a member of F.I.R.E.) more closely here:

if you need a steampunk reason, imagine melting all those scrap brass keys down in your back yard with stuff you can get out of the kitchen, and from a hardware store, and no fossil fuels needed or electricity to heat it. (remember to stay upwind of any melting brass, as zinc boils off of it and can make you sick if you breath it)
