The other day I Bolted it all up and this is what it looked like.

It looks like I blew the gen core and ergo the windings. I was pretty unimpressed with the voltage output. That is about 3M of 0.7 wire.
Joseph Newman would be very angry with me right now, and I also observed that the more experienced gen builders here are quite generous with the copper. So in order to make sure that I give this concept a fair shake of the sauce bottle, I'm rewinding the stater. The primary on the stater is wound and I'm doing the secondary tonight. Here's a shot of the old one next to the new one.

The rotor was a bit of a departure from the norm. I found the time to briefly test it against a more orthodox rotor with more powerful magnets, and I'm actually quite happy with it for now. I'm hoping the mark 2 will be ready to spin up soon.
