This Pelton wheel turbine turns a small generator as a demonstration of renewable energy sources. The rubber drive belt between the wheel and generator dry rotted and broke into a zillion pieces. The guys from Miami Exhibits were looking at it and thought it was just dead in the water….
Until I put a piece of yarn on it.
It worked for a few turns then stretched out and slipped. I made another one a bit tighter and put it on there and it’s been working for two days now.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta believe.
Update: As of 4/5: Seven days, still working!
