Hi all, hi rakarskiy, it is a modified alternator, with neodymium permanent magnets inside, used for wind generators.
So it does not need anywhere close to 4000 rpm, maybe 400 rpm to make some good juice.
Flywheel is 24" diameter at around 18 lbs.

Hi alexelectric, yes, though this is a continuation of a project that I never followed through with.

Thanks for the video link.
Yes, that is the idea, good video showing a good simple design and a better designed flywheel than mine.
peace love light
