Rotary compressor sealing vane leakage/chatter
This video is in response to some questions by NOBOX7 and Aussie50 about a chattering noise and low flow from these rotary compressors when there is no back pressure. I took high speed video at 6000fps of the sealing vane, showing the vane separating from the rotary ring, allowing gas to escape from the high pressure side to the low pressure side.

Eight-transformer resonant MOT arcs
A resonant MOT setup consisting of 8 MOTs and 19 microwave capacitors (~17uF). All the MOTs and all the caps are in parallel banks, with the capacitor bank connected in series with the MOT output. Current draw is about 100A at 240V. Warning: Do not try this if you don't know the proper safety procedures. There are no second chances when working with microwave oven transformers. Even a one-transformer setup is deadly. -David & Walter

Heat Pump Water Heater
This is a heat pump water heater that I built, for heating potable hot water. It's based on parts from a 10,000BTU air conditioner, and various parts from the hardware store and refrigeration parts store. It provides about 3kW of heating capacity at 20C ambient temperature. The song at the end is Carpe Diem by Andy Timmons.
