This is my first working practical wind turbine. I really love green projects and renewable energy stuff. Last year I 've made a small modification on an old PC fan to convert it into a small wind turbine. It had enough output power to light an LED. It was a huge project for me at that time because I 've always wanted so much to get even little power from wind.
The huge number of people on instructables who successfully built different sizes and shapes of practically working wind turbines has motivated me to build my own next level wind turbine to have higher scale of power output.
That 's where TurbineOne came from.
TurbineOne is my first practical power generating wind turbine.
I named it TurbineOne because I intend to build many other turbines.
I 'll explain how I built it in the next steps.
I know, when it comes to technical appeal ,engineering calculations or technology practices TurbineOne is not very awesome.
Believe me, I'm not so handy when it comes to mechanics and using power tools.
Please make good comments and productive criticism.
Thank you for spending time reading my instructable.

This is the most important piece of equipment for your wind turbine.
Actually, it was the first thing I started to look for when I decided to build my own wind turbine.
I thought to buy a DC motor from any hardware store who sells this kind of motors as a spare part for any appliance and I thought to get them from eBay
( e.g dishwasher , blender ... etc ) .
If you couldn't find an old motor, you still have the option to buy a new one.
Amazon US, Amazon CA, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, Amazon FR or eBay
Then I found an old blender motor that has a permanent magnet inside it.
The motor generates electricity when it is turned by hand.
I measured the output and found to be nearly 14 Volts on the Voltmeter.
I bought it from Amazon for another project and used it as a generator and it worked perfect.
