If Only I'd Known About This!

If only I would have known about this before it was too late! Before I got a free and NOT broken washer and dryer. Before I JUMPED THE GUN and gave the broken appliances away, I could have been getting fit and getting my laundry done and doing my part for energy conservation!!


The basic idea is to use a stationary bicycle stand as the power source, and use an assembly of belts and pulleys to connect it to an old, salvaged washing machine tub. Rather than reiterate all of the details here, I will instead direct you to HD's website, which contains extensive details about how he worked out the connection. He has also hooked up an assembly that runs a permanent-magnet electric motor backwards, serving as a electrical generator, as well.
