Check out the simple construction in the link below. You may have to take out a second mortgage to purchase the copper wire, though.

Hey! Good to see people are interested in this sort of thing.

Here is a link to a project I have made in my garage. http://www.windstuffnow.com/main/builders_corner.htm

It is as DIY as you can get. It isn't for those who are all thumbs, but puts out some serious power.

If you live in or near a large urban center, you can source all of the parts yourself, or you can just buy the kit and source the rest. If serious, buy the kit and save yourself the hassle.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

Radio Shack was Tandy in Australia - absorbed into Dick Smith Electronics.

You can get project parts from DSE or Jaycar, Altronics in the west or WES Components if you're in Sydney.

Well, if that is all you need it for, just yard an alternator out of any car. It uses some of its own power to create the required magnetic field instead of using permanent magnets, but will put out a constant 12-14 v dc.

Certainly cheaper.

Yeah, but you know teachers. They want to see it built from scratch. The one I linked will certainly power a flashlight bulb
