Cool, now I can see your ?gear pump? design.
Very original. Might even work great.
Maybe a chain drive?

ok, belt is too mutch slip, direct drive and not enough rpm. most are suggesting chain drive and that was my first thought, so i will focus on the chain drive.

the generator is the trick,

i was thinking of this idea!, waht if i build another wind gen and place it on top the other one but it will spin in the opposite dirction

ad if one run the stator and the other will run the rotor then i will double my rpm just like that, i will draw a design to see what i mean later.
anyway this thing spinn like crazy close to the ground! imagine if on top a roof !!??.  it took me few designs to get it right with the blades and center wieght ratio, so it was a bit of a money hole but when it is done the real thing should not cost more than couble of hundreds.

i will post the next step witch is the gear. please post your thoughts. i am hoping to do this and post my plans for all to try.
