homemadewindturbine Maker Seeking Help with Wind Turbine
In the comments to an old post that Becky did in 2009, about Instructable user brokengun’s single-engine single rotor wind turbine (pictured above), a maker from India is trying to build a similar turbine and having problems:

I’m Mohammed from India, and I have been working to design a wind turbine (alternator), searched everywhere, but am not sure how to wire a coil. I don’t wanna give up, please forward me your email I will send an email of the rotor which I have made. It’s been a year, yet no progress. I tried all the possible ways to make such type of alternator (the one which you have made), I’m not getting any results, and have come to a conclusion that I need someone who can guide me on this. Please help (my email: [email protected]).

Can someone reach out and try and help him? And Mohammed, can you attach pictures of your rotor here and describe the nature of the problems you are having? I will also contact “brokengun” and see if you can chime in here.
