seeking person with knowledge about electrical things
Seeking person to help me design a project and coax (coach - stupid spell check) me on how to build it.
It involves transforming motor into generator to power a battery. Also adding solar panels to power same battery. And putting a plug so the battery can power something - a lamp being the lowest user and possibly a kettle or toaster oven for the higher user.
Hoping to make this with as many reclaimed materials as possible, to cut down on cost and environmental impact - so I need to know where to salvage and when safety dictates I need a new one.
I have basic electrical knowledge (aka, I know there are electrons and magnets and to disconnect the power source before soldering or tinkering with other things. I can also follow a diagram and use those little cap things to attach wires together).
I just need someone to help with the design, to figure out what other parts I need and to coax (coach - I sear my spell check is getting stupider by the day) through any assembling troubles.
Will pay in fibre and/or yarn.
I've lost everyone's emails addresses this winter, so if you are someone I know, please either email me or give me your address again. Thank you.
