  4. Thanks for posting this info Paulie. The wife and I recycle as much as we
    can and this is another way to reduce, re-use, and recycle.

  6. did you actually changed anything to the cooling fan? or you just opened it
    for curiosity?

  7. You get past the obvious things. 1. No need to be extracted from the fan
    housing. 2. Need to gather fans in one panel. 3. You can even put the fan
    by one by one. Verified by experiments.

  8. i think the blades would turn better if was facing opposite direction, of
    course mounting would be more difficult and different cuz you would need to
    keep the fan frame to mount the horizontal pole

  10. Thanks, its really simple to make, all you need to do is scale it up a bit
    and you’d have enough to power some pretty hefty stuff within the home.

    brighter

  12. no not realy but you can or may get more energy out of it by putting the

  15. Yes, it charges the battery while its turning, you should try it, its very
    cheap and effective.

  16. you need to invert the fan, the curve should face the other direction to
    grab the air, not deflect it

  22. Not completely. It would probably be better to do the same steps with a
    larger DC motor, maybe a radiator fan from a car

  24. It might be cheaper to just hook up some more small turbines like that.
