    Hello Instructables CommunityMe and my dad have made a succesful generator. it may be crude but it does produce over 12 volts.

    I was planning to do that, but the process may be different for someone else due to different engine and parts, and I have neglected to take photos of building it.

    Hello Instructables CommunitMe and my dad have made working generator! It made be crude, but it does produce over 12 volts of electricity.

  • How fast is the engine? I looked online and didn't get good results. Some say around 5000 rpm and others 8000 rpm. I don't believe it's that fast. You guys know? It's a Ryobi 725r trimmer

  • I didn't consider that, If it doesn't work by connecting the two parts together, I will use a gearing system to produce more torque.

    If I can get it to work, I'll consider that.

  • I do know what an alternator is, but what I'm confused about is that could I find a one wire (with built in regulator / rectifier) one from the wreckers (I assume a scrapyard) for an affordable price ($30-40) just as I could with one without a regulator. I hope this clears things up. Sorry about the bad wording of my previous reply.

    Well, I guess the higher price is worth it, thank you. I'll give you all an update when I finish the project.

  • I've found a new problem: how do you bypass the 3 pin regulator port? A mechanic told me it won't produce electricity without a regulator.

    I found a new problem: do I have to buy an external regulator and if so, how do I wire it to the alternator and battery?Feature Commentflag[delete]

    I found a new problem, do I have to buy an external regulator and if so, how do I wire it to the battery.

    I'm a bit confused by what you mean by "A little alternator from the wreckers." How much would this cost me?

  • Oh, I didn't think of that, thank you!

    Okay, but where would I find such a shaft?

  • Along with my initial reply, I have another question. I found this alternator online. Where would I have to connected it to a battery and with that plug I circled prevent it from working?

    I actually don't know.

    Thank you Verence. I was wondering however: if I did a gear system, wouldn't the higher rpm on the generator produce more electricity? Or is there no difference?
