  1. Wind generator

    I have so far made 3 different stator coils to test what kind of output I get with different turns of wire. But it has been so many years since I used a volt/ohm meter that I was having a hard time figuring out anything. I finally got it worked out, and I recently bought an anemometer to track wind speeds, then last week I bought an LCD Digital photo tachometer that can measure from 5-100000 RPM. And it can do it from 2" to 20" away. I will use it to determin my rotor speed during my generator ...

Since that time I have been trying to get someone here to do repairs to the box on the pole so that I might be able to enjoy the services that I pay $65.00 ...

    Well, this is my first blog.

    It has also just entered the 'ok, I am REALLY going to finish it now' phase.

    I just took it to the body shop Monday (8-8-2011).
    Hopefully they can jump on it, and get it done by the end of the month.
    Body work and paint.
    It is going to be painted HardHat, Corvette, or Viper yellow.
    The brighter ...
