# Piggot type generator, Magnets

## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm back in school after decades away and taking alternative energy .. just because it was interesting.
In the wind power class we talked about Hugh Piggot and the home brew HAWTs he makes and teaches. That gave me the bug to see if I can do it. I'm pretty sure I can buy a used turbine on EBay for cheaper, but that's not the point.

My question for the brains here is:
Will a N52 set of magnets generate enough extra to offset the costs vs a N50 or less.
