Build the PPPM - Change Your World
The Pedal Powered Prime Mover (PPPM) can be assembled with standard hand tools (drill, hacksaw, wrench, pliers, screwdriver, etc.). There is no welding, brazing or machine-shop work required. The PPPM can be used to power virtually anything that requires moderate amounts of electric power, spins, or rotates, as long as the effort required is within the capabilities of the rider.
You Can Do it - With Detailed Instructions and Assembly Photographs
Over 200 people have purchased the PPPM plans, and the number is growing steadily.
The Pedal Powered Prime Mover plans consist of:
Plans for powering other common devices using the PPPM are under development. You may wish to preview the Plans Table of Contents and Sample Chapter to see how comprehensive and easy-to-follow the plans are.
Approximate Cost for Parts - Full Retail
The approximate cost for parts to construct the PPPM, based on full retail prices at hardware and bicycle stores in Northern California, is US $230.00
Many parts can be re-used from junk bicycles, or found in typical workshops. It may be possible to construct the PPPM for a small fraction of that amount by recycling a junk bicycle for the bicycle parts and buying only the remaining, less common mechanical parts.
Note: This cost does not include the equipment that will be powered by the PPPM: plaptop computers, blenders, umps, generators, air compressors, or other equipment. To estimate the costs of electrical devices, you may request to "Show Prices" using the Circuit Builder to see approximate additional costs.
