My new title
Environmental/Utility Inspector on Bull
Mountain Pipeline. My new Office is near
Take a look at my office!
I'm still laying a lot of pipe!
By the way did I mention I built a wind generator!
I carved the
props out of 2" X 4" X 5' boards. I hand wound coils in the generator
with 24 magnets 1" X 2" X .5". I
positioned and glued the magnets on each plate cast with fiberglass resin to
form to magnet rotors (think like I'm putting 2 brake rotors on a wheel hub with
magnets glued to the area that the brake pads touch)
5 amps at 6 mph,
20 amps at 10 mph,
35 amps at 15 mph,
55 amps at 20 mph,
80 amps at 25 mph,
100 amps at 35 mph.
25 to 40 is what I'm seeing most of the time at that point the tail folds and starts to limit the high end so it does not overload the generator or blow the tower down. The tower tilts up and down by a winch for maintenance and it's 65 feet high.
JUST SOME PICTURES OF THE TRIP TO FLORIDA
By the way, I'd just bought 2 acres and a house on the lake next door to my mother's house, just east of Dallas (Greenville). Our properties combined = 6 acres and 3 houses plus Bruce's Datsun 510 which is still running strong!
