I posted my dynamo light mechanism on thingiverse. Included are all files plus a readme and wiring diagram.

This is a DIY crank light. This light doesn't use capacitors to store power like most manufactured lights of this type. The power goes straight to the LED's and this unit only produces light when cranked (either direction).

Another feature of this light is it can be gravity driven with a #8 ball chain and a weight attached to the chain. Here is a video of the 1st prototype being chain driven. http://youtu.be/XNj1datjETQ

The gentleman that sells the Dynamos doesnt seem to be selling them right now. I have a bunch of the dynamos if anyone is interested.

Nice work! The wiring diagramm is perfect to me,
I rather do modelling and mechanical stuff ;), try to stay away from all electrical.

Thanks,
