    THANKS, LONGER PROPS SPIN SLOWER. BUT A PROP THAT IS 2 TIMES LONGER HAS 4 TIMES THE POWER. SO FINDING MOTORS THAT RUN LOW RPMS IS BEST. OTHER THAN THAT YOU HAVE TO GEAR UP. THAT MEANS POWER LOSS. FATTER WIRE MEANS LESS RESISTANCE AND MORE AMPS. BUT LESS VOLTAGE. LESS VOLTAGE OUTPUT MEANS YOU NEED MORE RPMS TO REACH CHARGING VOLTAGE. REWINDING ONE OF THESE WITH 18 GAGE IS ABOUT RIGHT. TESTS WILL TELL WHEN WE GET THE NEXT ONE UP.

    I watched the whole series, it was top notch. I’ve been slowly absorbing DIY windmill information. My only question is doesn’t a slower rpm motor produce vastly more power? Is it really practical to use paddle fan motors? I mean, don’t you want to shoot for at least 480 watts coming out of your battery bank in order to power a few dwelling loads? Thanks for all the info, gonna have to watch it again.

    THE CEILING FAN IS OUT LEAGUED. BUT IT WILL BE PRODUCING POWER IN THE POW WINDS BEFORE THE TREADMILL STARTS PRODUCING. THE TREADMILL MOTOR NEEDS MORE RPMS TO REACH CHARGING VOLTAGE, BUT WHEN IT GETS THERE, IT WILL MAKE UP FOR LOST WATTAGE.

    Hi again, I just wanted to share an idea with you, I have been getting good voltage with the ceiling fan generator and good amperage with the treadmill motor generator so I figure the two of these wired together should be pretty decent. I’de say it should produce about 40v and 4amps. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    I BET IT WORKS GREAT. IT WORKS GOOD FOR UNITS THAT DONT FURL OUT. AND YOU MADE A GOOD POINT TOO, MOST AREAS HAVE WIND PREDOMINANTLY FROM ONE DIRECTION. PICTURES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.

    I put a stop on the post so it could only spin 360degs my wire NEVER winds up. it works great. i put the stop in the direction the wind blows the least. i could take a picture of it if you would like one to show you what I did??

  7. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    YUP! I BELIEVE YOU ARE RIGHT.ACTUALLY IT WILL WIND ONE TURN PER WEEK ON AVERAGE. IF IT GETS TIGHT, IT WILL TURN AROUND AND UNWIND. IN THE MOUNTAINS, THEY JUST USE A SHORT PIECE OF CABLE CONNECTED BETWEEN THE TURBINE AND THE POLE. IT ALLOWS FOR 2 TO 3 TURNS, AND KEEPS THE WIRES LOOSE. SLIP RINGS CAN BE USED, OR DROP THEM DOWN THE INSIDE OF THE POLE AND AT THE BOTTOM HAVE A PLUG TO UNPLUG AND UNWIND. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO CHECK THE WINDINGS EVERY FEW MONTHS OR SO THAT WAY. I SPIN MINE BACK.

    ACTUALLY IT WILL PROBABLY WIND ONE TURN PER WEEK ON THE AVERAGE. IF IT GETS TIGHT, IT WILL TURN AROUND AND UNWIND A TURN. IN THE MOUNTAINS, THEY JUST USE A SHORT PIECE OF AIRCRAFT CABLE CONNECTED BETWEEN THE TURBINE AND THE POLE. IT ALLOWS FOR 2 TO 3 TURNS, AND KEEPS THE WIRES LOOSE.

    I BET IT WAS FUN. I’VE BEEN IN A FEW OF THOSE SPOT IN TIME, REPLACING SEWAGE LINES. ONE TIP FOR ANYONE DOING THAT. DONT ASK THE RESIDENTS NOT TO FLUSH THE TOILETS. AND THEY PROBABLY WON’T. BUT IF YOU ASK THEM NOT TOO FLUSH, THEY PROBABLY WILL. ASK ME HOW I KNOW.

    I think he was referring to the length of wire that trails from the turbine to the ground getting wrapped around the outer pipe of the yaw mechanism as the turbine rotates when the wind changes direction. if the turbine makes too many rotations around the yaw, the trailing wire will get hung up and try to rip out of the turbine or at least stop the turbine from being able to rotate with the wind anymore. I was wondering the same thing, but I’m only on video 7; maybe you cover it in video 8 or 9?

    The PVC glue and cleaner reminded me of my youth when I bought an old double wide mobile home that needed a ton of repair work, it came with 5 acres of land so what the heck. I had to replace all the plumbing, all the water pipes had frozen and broke. I crawled under with 40 feet of pipe so I wouldn’t have to crawl back out again and 2 cans each of cleaner and glue. It was a really tight area, no ventilation, I lost several brain cells that day from the glue….good times (I think) .

    Muddy, Thanks for the series of vids. Most informative. 
    Question; How do you keep the charging leads coming down the support pole from winding around the pole until it could break? Your lead slack looks to not allow no more than approx 400 degrees until it must be rotated back to zero. Here in south Texas, our wind will swings in five diff directions within a few hours.

  13. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    THE FIELD WINDINGS USE CURRENT FROM THE BATTERIES, AND THE STEEL INSIDE THE COILS DRAG DUE TO EDDY CURRENTS, AND LENZ LOSSES, AND HEAT LOSSES, ALL MAKE THEM ABOUT 20% EFFICIENT AT BEST. WHEN THE WIND IS SLOW, IT WILL DRAW MORE CURRENT TO SUPPLY THE FIELD WINDINGS. INSTALLING PERMANENT MAGNETS WILL TAKE CARE OF 10% OF THE LOSSES. THAT MEANS ABOUT 30% EFFICIENT. IF I USED ONE, I WOULD DEFINITELY MAKE A FURLING MECHANISM TO PROTECT IT FROM HIGH WINDS IN SCOTLAND.

    hello well done on the videos. just thought id ask you can i use a 24v truck alternator as a turbine to keep 2 12 volt batterys charged. and use them to power yard lights. 24v of course. would it work. plenty of wind here in northern ireland. and how would it stand up to high winds. would i need to fit some sort of a brake on it. im a fitter by trade so the work would be no problem. thanks.

  15. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    THANKS! IT WAS FUN TOO. ESPECIALLY WHEN IT STARTED TO SPIN UP AND THE BLADES REACHED CUT IN SPEED. THE LIFT TAKES OVER AND IT TAKES OFF MUCH FASTER. VERY EXCITING. I NEED TO SHOW THIS IN A VIDEO. IT IS VERY EDUCATIONAL FOR EXPLAINING THE LIFT ADVANTAGE AS TO STRAIGHT BLADES. MUCH MORE POWERFUL.

    great one cool vid’s

  17. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    THAT MY FRIEND IS THE BEAUTY OF THIS STYLE MOTOR. IT DOESNT NEED BRUSHES BECAUSE THE STATOR IS STATIONARY. THE SHELL OF THE MOTOR AND THE MAGNETS DO ALL OF THE SPINNING. SO THE WIRES DONT MOVE. THEY HAVE GOOD BEARING THAT WILL LAST A FEW YEARS EVEN IN WEATHER. AND THE STRENGTH OF THE SHELL IS THE HOLDING THE BLADES. THEY ARE PERFECT EXCEPT THE COILS ARE A BIT FINER WIRE THAN NEEDED FOR 12 VOLTS. 24 OR 36 VOLT BATTERIES ARE BEST. BUT THEY WILL STILL CHARGE 12 V PRETTY GOOD.

  18. THEtechknight says:

    how do you stop the wires from getting twisted and ripped out when the turbine spins around??

  19. 007rapz says:

    when the wind turbine spins to catch the wind the entire assembly spins with it so how do you keeps the wire that goes to the battery from not letting the turbine spin or tangling up?

    YA MAN IVE BEEN THERE A FEW TIMES. I LIKE THE SITE.

    thank you i also found the magnets on ebay for 24.98 at magnetsforless store

  22. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    hey dude I got a video showing the 7 or 9 coil set up. go to kb5etp channel.

  23. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    I usually use a drop of super glue to tack them in first. that’s just after i get them all spaced out just right. then i use regular 7 minute 2 part epoxy from the shelf at the hardware store. J B weld is overkill but if you have it, use it anyway. the stress to the magnets is not very strong and probably doesnt even need the epoxy. but it makes it dependable to me. over time, vibration, and weather, they might move a little so i epoxey them.

  24. MrScott2222 says:

     i would like to know what epoxy you use

  25. muddymuddymuddmann says:

    I believe it has 9 coils with spaces. the coils are pretty hefty because they are making up for the spaces in between. You will treat this one like it has 18 coils. in other words, place the magnets with north or south over the coils, and the other polarity over the spaces in between.
    Glad you wrote about this one. ive been waiting to explain this type of windings.
    I only briefly described this type without going into it in the videos.
