[Noisebridge-discuss] Making a wooden hand crank

For a hand-crank, I'd guess the main issue is getting a strong connection between the axle and the crank where you will have a lot of torque. How about a connection like the image attached. Drill a hole about the size of your axle and a slot off the hole. Slip the axle on and then tighten a bolt along the end of the crank arm.

I'm mostly finding small devices for charging phones or dynamos, but I just need to know how to build the mechanism with the hand-held part, connected to the shaft the rotates the other mechanisms in whatever system I connect that hand crank to.
