Here is how one compares torque to horsepower. A large windmill blade with
little wind will yank your arm off dtarting out, which is torque. With
small blades, it needs a lot of wwind to move, that is horsepower. The
Toyota trucks with a v8 produces 90 percent of its torque, right above
idle, due to light weight engine parts, and cubic inches. I read a roadtest
where a toyota had 800 pounds of plywood in its bed and it kept up with a
same size empty bed Chevy thru the quarter mile. Anyway , for the punks out
there torque will outrun horsepower. A smaller engine will outrun a bigger
engine. Power to pull hills without changing gears with torque is what
counts, Horsepower will not make a car go faster on takeoff.

Someone told me that mennonites didnt believe in using the modern
convenience of pollutung wasteful electricity. So they dont believe in a
windmill using electricity, but if a windmill has chains and sprockets
leading dowwn to a well pulling the water up. Then that is ok. Why should
it make any difference which way to do it.

ones to charge

give low amp but they are ideal for battery charging.

the Wee flutter generator looks like one that any one can make with the

or i guess these can be hand made too........

1:30, thats why you build the mill on top of a rotary base and have a fin
attached behind the wind mill that will line the windmill up with the

I see windmills can be used as temporary power source during a storm.
There's lots of wind and if the power company cuts off or the electricity
just goes off then there's an alternative,

With the traditional windmill one does not have to turn the blades in the
direction of the wind. All you have to do is fit the back half of the
windmill with a Tail (like in a plane). However what you have to make sure
is that the wind mill is mounted on vertical shaft that allows it to turn
in any direction. Also the shaft should be connected a little off center of
the windmill, slightly more towards the blades that will allow the tail to
swing, making the blades face the wind at all times. thx
