Ok - I didn't recall the name exactly.



Yes, that's the one I had in mind. He didn't invent the wind-up radio though.



I didn't know about that. Thanks for the link.

The programme's been very interesting in many different ways.

How big do you want? What voltage and current rating?
You can use an automotive heater fan motor, an automotive radiator fan
motor, or even a permanent magnet starter motor.
A windscreen wiper motor also works, and has a built in gear drive -
as does a power window motor if you are looking for low voltage and
relatively low power output.

A treadmill motor works for higher output voltage and power.

i;m looking at anythi g that gives about 12 volts at 3 amps but higher is
better as i want to start with some small tests around the home but move on
to using it for several things at once whick means i will need it to
produce more evectricty as i start to use it for more things i can always
not use it to it's fll potential at first but if i want to expand  then i
don;t want to have to get anotther after second hand ones are a good iea but
ut us  hard to get secondhand parts over her cause all the working ones are
usually whiped up by rtepair copmpanys and as soon as they are available.

For 12 volts you want a 24 volt or higher DC permanent magnet motor. I
have a few DC servo motors that would do the trick, but they are in
Canada and pretty heavy. Tape drive motors like the Ametec units also
work good and were widely available as surplus. Your best bet,
currently, is likely a treadmill motor, but if you are in a 2220 volt
area the output will be higher than 12 volts!!

Thank you very much for that information I will take it into consideration
if you do find any more information or anything else I can use I would love
to hear.
