Things Preppers Do: Water Tank Recycle

The Things Preppers Do

“Some are fun. Some are dangerous. And some may just be stupid,” says Scott, the owner of engineer775 Practical Preppers.

Says Scott, as he’s moving a 21′ water tank that gravity-fed a greenhouse for years. A tank he bought for $200.

As the tank rolls off the trailer onto his property, he wonders how to both prep and then use this tank:

  • as an underground cache, or
  • a water tower, or
  • as a bunker.

DIY Leather Slingshot Holster

Slingshot Holster

The two brothers (Krik & Stony) of Black Owl Outdoors, demo their DIY leather slingshot holster.

Making A Slingshot Holster

Using leather pieces (some hardened), a bungee cord, and some copper rivets, they’ve fashioned a very functional holster for a slingshot and possibly an axe.

I enjoy their videos because they not only share their good ideas, but also the mistakes they made in the do-it-yourself process …. and how they’ll make the item better the next time.

Using Hardened Leather

Krik mentions hardening the leather for the holster spine, but doesn’t say in the video how he does that. In the comment section he answers that question:

I soaked the leather in warm water for about a minute, then slowly dried it in the oven at 170 degrees. Or it will dry on its own in a day or so.

Watch the video below for additional details on this holster project.

Now just sticking your truck stuff under the seat is not a secure option. So what do you do? You build a latched, hidden storage compartment.
