How to build a Bedini SSG and restore lead acid batteries yourself. Read full article: http://www.thedoityourselfworld.com/articles/article.php?id=11534
This will be a full series showing you step by step how to build your own bedini motor.
The project will lead you through every detail on how to build your own Bedini SSG (Simplified School Girl) motor.
Later we will move on to advanced levels and show you how to increase the output power of your Bedini motor. But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves just yet.
The first step in building your own Bedini motor is to make sure that your wheel is ready.
If you are using a bicycle wheel make sure all the spokes are straight. The wheel needs to be perfectly straight. There can be no wobble in the wheel at all.
The next step is to make sure that your bearings are loose and spin freely enough.
If you can disassemble the wheel then remove the bearings. If there is a dust cap, see if you can gently pry it off. Do not damage it though so be careful.
Clean out the bearings with carburetor cleaner to remove all the thick grease inside.
Then spray it with WD40 which is a water displacer.
You will want to lubricate the bearings with some very fine oil such as sewing machine oil.
The idea is to have very freely spinning bearings with as little friction as possible.
When you reassemble the wheel, make sure not to tighten the bearings in too hard. Again, ensure they spin freely.
Now the next step is to balance your wheel. I do this using lead fishing weights.
I hold the wheel vertically and give the wheel a gentle spin and see which side always ends up on the bottom. Mark this point on your wheel.
Now use some tape and put lead fishing weights on the opposite side, one at a time, until the wheel is balanced.
You will know this when the wheel comes to a stop at a random point every time.
Now use super glue or hot glue and secure your fishing weights permanently.
Now your wheel is ready to use.
