What do you think John,

Patio, and Outdoors, or Home Improvement?

I was thinking Home Improvement with the reasoning that it is a alternative energy source for his lights.  Just my 2 cents worth anyway.  :D

I'm using Pm low RPM gen-set.

Lets pretend I was educated in the public school system.  In fact, don't pretend.  :D  Can you elaborate on what all that is?

 

Small words I get confused easily.:throbbinghead:

Low speed generator with magnets. It only needs two wires to work.

Okay I am good so far, two wires and a generator.  How would I hook that up to the windmill to make it work?

I used a vw volkswagen rear for the mill to sit on so the wind can turn the carriage to keep the blades pointed into the wind. This also lets me use two bevel gears so I have a shaft pointing down out of the carriage. This turning shaft lets me mount my generator with a belt. You can see the large pulley in this picture. The generator is not mounted in this picture.
