Went with ethanol in the end. Seems to work ok.http://solarflower.org
so what did you decide on? Im designing a similar solar generator. Is it a viable effective system? Thanks
$30 Vertical Axis Wind Turbine From Scrap Materials
Cheers, fixed now.
It's in the process of being field implemented and tested.
The two construction drawing links don't work. (On solarflower.org, they end in "pdf", not "jpg".)
if the bench is framed with 2x4 under the top, u can clamp work to the bench without modifying the clamp.
Very cool and detailed instructions. Did you ever test it out to see how many watts was produced? Did you try it with a car alt? Thanks.
It would be cheaper to buy a big threaded rod, and make a vise. You'll be paying way more for pretty much the same thing. (I know I'm late!)Unless you happen to have a bic C-Clamp on hand... Well... Keep it. Those are pretty expensive - Yonatan24
I don't think it matters. They all are basically the same... - Yonatan24
u want somthin like a vice above the worktop? Or flush with it - Toga_Dan
Ummm...A magnifying glass, perhaps?
Well...You get two single photon light beams very close to each other.And if you are lucky enough they become interested in each other and form a relationship.Just not sure where to find a male and a female beam of similar age.... - Downunder35m
How does light slow down light?? - Kiteman
What if you use microwaves to slow down the light?

I've not made one, will hopefully get around at some point to doing up a 3d model which could be printed or similar. No idea if it would actually work.
hi, first off I know absolutely nothing about this but perhaps I can try to have one made. I have recently discovered I need to columate my blue filtered diving lights in order to take pictures of sea life which is phosphorescent under certain wavelengths. Have you made one yet? I will ask around here to see if someone could make one if you send the parameters, if that's OK. Thanks
Hi SolarFlower, very interesting. I'm trying to create a light for video shooting, and I've been struggling for a long time on a problem that maybe you help me solve. I have a light source made of 4 powerful white COB (planar, lambertian) LEDs, that form a 80mm x 80mm light emitting source. What I want to do is to concentrate this source into a collimated beam, with the final purpose of using a floating Fresnel lens in order to adjust the angle of the final beam between, let's say, 10 and 60 degrees. This is very useful when you have to deal with studio lighting. Maybe you could help me? I'm spending time and money with little results... thanks! (and sorry for the poor English :))
In order to qualify as a laser, the output has to be coherent and is usually monochromatic (natural linewidth-limited). You won't get that from any old light source.
