Thank you to both of you for your replies.
I hooked it all up to a multimeter and handturning it, it produced upto 20V.
I tried it with an old bike light made up of 5 LEDs which lit up, flickered and then went out (I'm guessing I fried them).
So, I'm really pleased that it works but now want to work out how to regulate the voltage output. This is a project for the children in my school so I want to show them something that is stable and can produce approx. 12V.
Any suggestions on how to regulate/control the voltage output would be greatly appreciated.
