    @Treefrogs2 But you will never get an induction motor to speed with wind. DC permanent magnet motor as a generator or the best

    AXIAL FLUX GENERATOR.

    won’t have a choice in the next 25 years.
    coal will fail us miserably unless people simply stop demanding so much and they won’t.

    Hanford was a …
    Hanford was a military base used to produce nuclear fuel and weapons grade uranium/plutonium. It was managed by the military poorly and was designed with no thought of public safety or long term storage. The nuclear power plants today have moved largely to dry cask storage that have been proven to take a beating. The need for power is here. I would like more renewable energy used in the system, but right now our choice is mostly nuclear/coal. Ill take nuclear.

    Thanks Dan. Other than a treadnmill motor(where does one find that LOL) what machines likely would have decent DC motors for a decent beginning windmill project?

    Thank you. If you do it right, you never come near the blade and can cut perfect circles out of 3/4″ plywood in less than 2 minutes. Stay safe.

    WHATEVER. The facts …
    WHATEVER. The facts speak for themselves. Toxic nuclear waste, stored for 1000- ? years, in leaky containers. The original argument (if your 45 like me you might remember) was that technology was supposed to cure the problem of the waste. WE NOW KNOW that is

    On cutting your …
    On cutting your blades, you might try cutting to length first. Then glue caps on both ends. Then cut in half. The caps thus make a mounting flange
    that you can simple screw to your plywood. that cuts out having to make all those mounting cuts at 30 degrees.

    correction, 1 in 3 AMERICANS get cancer. that stat doesn’t apply globally. some nations have much higher or lower rates (the type of cancer varies too, betcha don’t know the most common type in america). anyways, you’ve failed to make a point. who cares how it happened, tell me how many people wind and solar have killed, gimme that number smart guy.
