Building a genertor? Answered

I have a 5sme22nj028a general electric motor and wanted to buld a generator. It is 10 pin (not including earth). I have used a voltmeter to see what generate but there are many combonations and they all seem to generate. Also it is brushless. I have posted this question before but fogort to include that the motor says varable speed on the side. I was thinking that connecting diffrent pins would make the motor go at diffrent speeds. In my other question someone said that it may need a mirco prosser before it. I think that this is probaly the case but wanted to see if anyone knew about this motor. So if it needs or doesnt need a micro prosessor before it, please tell me. I should be able to work it out from there. Thanks

Hey guys - I was wondering if anyone could point me to any instructables or other how-to's that teach you how to build a device that can communicate over the air over a given frequency? I've searched around a bunch but I can't really find anything. (I'm also completely stupid when it comes to this kind of stuff.)

Prop Building Guidebook

I have a new book out that should be of interest to prop makers, cosplayers, and anyone else interested in learning more about this type of fabrication. The Prop Building Guidebook covers materials and methods such as carpentry, metal work and welding, plastics, molding and casting, sculpting, fabric and sewing, painting and more, along with safety procedures, shop setup, planning and budgeting. At 383 pages, with over 575 color photographs and illustrations, it is the most comprehensive guide to prop building ever published, and it does so using professionally-produced props from well-known films and theatre productions. Nonetheless, it presents techniques usable for all skill levels and budgets. The book's webpage, http://www.propbuildingguidebook.com, has information on where you can buy it (you can get it online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and most other major online retailers). The website also has how-to videos and bonus chapters, all of which is free to view and read even if you do not buy the book.

Build an Electric Car

Want to convert your car to all-electric on the cheap?  Check out bennelson's awesome Instructable, Build your own Electric Car!  Ben walks you through the steps of converting a Geo Metro (purchase price $500, gas-requiring parts sold for $550) to run on a forklift motor and 6 12V batteries.   According to his calculations, the car gets the equivalent of about 130 mpg.  Not bad for an entirely self-taught mechanic! Check out the video of his converted Metro going up hills: Sounds easy, right?  So when are you planning to convert your car or truck? This post has been sponsored by Pepsi. The Pepsi Refresh Project celebrates the people, businesses, and non-profits with ideas that will have a positive effect on our world.

Building a capacitor charging unit

I was looking for a HowTo on building a capacitor charging unit. I saw a thread on a forum a while back that said you could create a large EM Pulse by sending a huge current down a coil of wire. I was looking about wiring up a bunch of these 220uF caps from Maplinhttp://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?ITAG=SPEC&ModuleNo;=12777&doy;=28m9#specThey are the last ones on the list.Would a few of these be sufficient to produce a large EM field, one that could fry sensitive electronic equipment. And how would i go about charging them all to the full capacity.Also while on this topic, would this be an efficient way of generating an EM pulse, or could you suggest any other ways of doing so.

Building a switch to invert current

I got a small electrical engine the other day, and I have to hook it up to two switches so that one switch starts the engine clockwise and the other counter-clockwise. My initial thought was to simply hook it up to two separate batteries each with a switch and one with the current reverted (like illustrated). But I'm wondering if there's a better way to go about this. For instance I have no idea if accidently activating both switches simultaneously will blow up the engine :s

Building ideas for a onstage train? Answered

My high school is doing Hello Dolly and if possiblelwould like a train to be brought on stage, does anyone have ideas on how to do that? I have a couple but I'm having trouble bring all of it to one idea. I had an idea you can make hand turnable axles and gears for the wheels, other stuff for the smokestack, I was thinking maybe corflute for the body, but its really just chaos in my head right now. Any suggestions?  It needs to be fairly lightweight.  It would be nice to have workable wheels  And not a real smokestack obviously but the appearance of smoke and a whistle Maybe a back platform if at all possible that Dolly could jump on... Our stage is small. It has no special things about it and its roughly 20 by 30 feet. There are two backstage wings that are really just small hallways that let out into the audience, and those are about 20 feet long.  Our plays are all financed by the drama teacher herself so the less expensive the better as well.  If nothing comes up thats ok too. We have an alternative that can be used.

Vivarium Wireing Help..

Hi im building a vivarium for my fat-tail geckos the standerd 1s boar me so i wont something diffrent so i need some help. The viv i have no problems with im already in the middle of the build its just the electrics i cant do. i have an idea it just seeing if it can be done or something neater or similer . At the minut im useing a plastic vivarium with items (3), (5), (6). But item (5) the manul timer is being use instead of item (2) The Microclimate day/night dimming Thermostat as the manual timer is a cheaper option and using it to turn the mat on and off to regulate the temp...... So what im trying to do is have Some thing like item (1) useing this as the main controller . This is what im after :Item (1),(2),(3)(4),(6) in 1 neat package well to run off 1 plug ... I was going to use a fan controller (pc) as this already has 3-5 small neat temp sencers and reads temps and the fan controller disply would looks cool and small and its 12v like the LCD lights ..and was going to use the the fan controller knobs to control White/Blue LCD Lights to turn then on and off ie:White for day and Blue for the night .and 1 of the other control knobs as my be a dimmer switch for the heat mat ...I think ive put that as id like it .. ( Sorry im dyslexics if spelling and dosent make sence in place's) Thanks hope some 1 can help . Oh im rubbish with electrics and forgot to mention that my viv is getting wall mounted as the need for 1 plug.
