Hy guys. This isn't completely about electronics, but is a little bit. I have 3 weed eater engines, and an 8hp horizontal shaft motor. I want to know if anyone has any good ideas of what I could build with them.
Thanks a lot.
Chris

Weedeater motors:
Did you keep the clutches for the weedeater motors?
R/C boat engine(s) (3 engine design with would sound nice at full throttle)
Compact portable generator. Use a shaft coupler to direct drive a generator, build into a compact box with regulator.
Auxillary bike motor.
Gas powered drill? :)
Build a 3 engined UAV, use electronics to control engine speed for stabilization.

Vertical shaft: Mosfet has the right idea for these beasts. Nonmobile application. Power:weight ratio is not good but they'll usually run forever.

Don't laugh at that one... we use them for drilling in power poles, when the supply is off. (Though we sometimes use air-powered equipment. Ever seen an air-powered chainsaw??)

These are all great Ideas, I think the boat idea sounds fun. Does anyone have any plans or anything?
Thanks a lot.
Chris.
