Customizable hand crank device.
With a splined output shaft like on a tractor, and a curvy crank.

An electric generator with a stepper motor, two diode bridges, and an adjustable voltage regulator (LM317) was previously done (pictures joined) and might come back on the horizontal output of the HuPo Take-Off, maybe this time with a cordless drill motor.
I didn't try yet to use the motor in the blender as a generator.
Gear ratio 1:1 today, less to come.
