An interesting thought has occurred to me Rick. As the wheel speeds up it will reach a speed where the centrifugal force will begin to cause the water to not want to move back to the center. So that will be a self regulating speed control. As the wheel gets loaded and slows down the water will again flow more freely back to the center and increase the torque of the wheel. I am really looking forward to someone building this and trying it out. I just don't have time myself right now to take on a project of this size.

Great work so far!

Take care,
Just because someone disagrees with you does NOT make them your enemy. We can disagree without attacking someone. This means YOU especially BroMikey.
