It's an interesting topic.

I have a 25ft of 1" hex bar stock I'd like to attach to a[n existing] utility pole with bearing, and a vertical axis mill at the top and a generator at the bottom. My thinking is the shaft would twist and store energy until it overcomes the cogging of the [Fisher-&Paykel washing machine] generator at startup.

These don't seem to have cogging.
