Please Note that there are many better ways of doing this, and many parts you may skip in certain cases, but this is how to make a simple one from scratch (sadly doesn't provide much power).
You will need:
Bare copper wire
a flat magnetic metal
a round magnet (two in diameter) or series of rectangular magnets.
1" pvc pipe
A nail about 2 1/2 in.
box (preferably cardboard)
12x24 in board (wood)
As Well As:
Step 1: Part One (Generator)- Step One
Drill the holes into the pen carefully
The last two in of the pen was the naile epoxied on as well as duct taped in order to make longer
Please find a different way of attaching the metal sticks together, this is NOT the best way
Make sure the metal is towards the bottom of the pen
Remove ink cartridge before drilling.
FOR ALL GENERATOR STEPS TO COME I RECOMMEND LOOKING AT THIS LINK FOR THIS IS WHAT I BASED MY DESIGNS OFF OF. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdF_qWNXyhA
Step 2: Part One (Generator)- Step Two
the copper wire MUST be bare and have limited Coating if not none. (I made this mistake)
Step 3: Part One (Generator)- Step Three
Sand off all sides, make sure to scrape off as much paint as possible
Step 4: Part One (Generator)- Step Four
Make sure the aluminum and the copper wire ARE touching, i suggest sandpaper to rough up the wire.
Make sure that the two Aluminum strips are NOT touching.
Step 5: Part One (Generator)- Step Five (skip If Have Round Magnet)
Step 6: Part One (Generator)- Step Six
sorry no pictures came out with you able to see the whole
Step 7: Part One (Generator)- Step Seven
Step 8: Part One (Generator)- Step Eight
Step 9: Part One (Generator)- Step Nine
Step 10: Part One (Generator)- Step Ten
Step 11: Part Two (Wheel)- Step One
measure and mark four 6"x3" panels
Step 12: Part Two (Wheel)- Step Two
in the center of both squares drill a hole the size of your pvc tube
Step 13: Part Two (Wheel)- Step Three
apply glue to three of the edges of the rectangles and position along the pvc and the walls of the wheel
clamp the walls together and let the glue dry overnight
Step 14: Part Two (Wheel)- Step Four
glue the pvc tubing on the outside and inside of the waterwheel
Step 15: Part Three (Togetherness)- Step One
Step 16: Part Three (Togetherness)- Step Two
Step 17: CONCLUSION
HOPE YOU ENJOYED AND ADAPTED OUR DESIGN TO MAKE IT BETTER, I know several ways to make this better next time, but PLEASE COMMENT ANY IDEAS FOR NEXT TIME.
