    Please, please please edit your post and make the text a sensible size.

    hi xxChrisxx
    i will made wind turbine and i will get about 100 rpm with high torque
    i want buy gearbox 1:15 and use it to increase the speed from 100rpm to 1500 rpm.. so i will connect the Output shaft to wind turbine and Input shaft with the alternator

    i want buy Series Helical gearbox
