  • 27-inch Bike Wheel
    Category: Material items

    Exactly how bike wheels are measured is slightly complicated, basically you want one which is about 63-64cm total outer rim diameter. 26" wheels can also be used but are less ideal.
    The wheel should:
    ~ Not be quick release
    ~ Have a normal thick axle (about 9mm diameter)
    ~ Have 36 spokes
    ~ Run reasonably smoothly
    ~ Have enough axle showing to attach to your pole mount, at least 4cm.

  • Aluminium offset printing plates
    Category: Material items, Material Type: Aluminum

    These are pure aluminium sheets used in a printing process fairly common with newspapers and magazines. A medium sized printing company may recycle hundreds of plates every week, so it's usually easy to pick them up cheap.
    Any size, thickness, or type is fine as long as they're larger than 67cm on the long axis.

  • Vertical Wind Turbine View Recipe
    Category: Material items

    Vertical Axis Wind Turbine which uses wind energy to drive things like an alternator/generator for producing electricity, or air and water pumps for cooling, irrigation and similar.
    The turbine uses the 35-40% mechanically efficient Lenz2 lift+drag design. It is made almost entirely from scrap materials, and should cost about $15-$30 for the six vane version, which can be made by two people in four hours without much effort.
