Answer by it’s him
Get one of those alternators from a junkyard, they work great. I made a simple prop from an 8 foot long 2 x 4, planening both sides.

With the cost of fuel being very unstable and the ever rising price of electricity isn`t it nice to know that there is a way that we can reduce our utility bills. I`m not talking about going round and turning off every light and appliance that you are not using (although this is of course a good start) I`m talking about renewable wind energy. Did you know that if you build your own wind generator you can make free energy for your home? Wind power for homes is one of the fastest growing sources of power of any of the renewable energy technologies available today.
When you build your own wind generator you are harnessing the full power of nature and turning it into electricity, electricity that is free. Wind power for homes works on exactly the same principle as the large industrial wind turbines that are sprouting up everywhere. The flow of air turns the wind turbine to create electricity. As the speed of the wind increases so the amount of power your DIY wind generator produces also increases.
If you live in even a moderately windy place then it would be a smart investment to build your own wind generator so that you can start to make free energy for your home. And even if where you live is not such a windy area you can still use your DIY wind generator to supplement your electricity and cut down the cost of what you are paying to your current electricity supplier.
Another good reason why you should build your own wind generator is that by using simple Do-It-Yourself guides anyone can easily and cheaply start to make free energy for their homes. You do not need any special skills and even the most modest handyman or woman can put together their own DIY wind generator quickly and easily and at a lot less cost than you may think.
Apart from all the free energy that you can make with a DIY wind generator you can also pat yourself on the back for having one of the cleanest and most environmentally friendly forms of producing renewable energy that there is. A wind generator does not produce carbon dioxide, or methane, or any of the other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, in fact when you use wind power for homes there is little or no pollution at all.
Wind power for homes has become so popular and so efficient that in certain places it is even possible to sell the excess electricity that your DIY wind generator produces back to the electricity companies. So in fact in many cases the big energy companies that people once paid for their power are now paying them for theirs.
So to sum up, if you want to make free energy to power your home then you really should build your own wind generator. Not only is it cheap and easy to make a DIY wind generator but you will also have an everlasting supply of free energy.
