Wind Turbine from a cordless drill?
hi guys i have come across an old 18volt drill. i connected it to some small pvc blades about 12 inches long in the hope of generating some small amount of power. Pointed it into a reasonably stiff breeze but the blades wont turn due to the gears of the drill. Anyone out there got any ideas on how to make this work. is there any way to free the gears so it turns easier or any advice on what size blades would be required to turn the motor.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
