Otherpower.com and Wondermagnet.com are owned by ForceField--a small business, run completely out of our
homes. Our business and shipping office is in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. It is usually staffed Monday thru Friday, 9-4 Mountain Time, and is a very busy place! Some of our staff live and work in a very remote area west of town, high up in the mountains. They are connected to the office thru the miracle of 2-way satellite internet service.
Otherpower.comA huge FREE resource for alternative energy enthusiasts and experimentors. Build your own low-rpm permanent-magnet alternators, battery chargers, anemometers, windmills, hydro turbines and more. Free information on building remote power systems for cheap. Very active discussion board...get your solar/wind/hydro power questions answered fast! Many DIY projects and experiments. Unusual and hard-to-find components and books!
We sell our products mostly on the Internet. We do not have a mail-order catalog available at this time, it's all online. Customers may place orders online with the order form and pay via check, money order, paypal, or through our secure credit card processing form. After payment is received, we ship products on the same or next business day via UPS or Priority Mail. If you need faster shipping, call us -- we can ship by FedEx or UPS 2- or 1- day air also.
We also sell certain products on Ebay, including magnets and one-of-a-kind experimental science and alternative energy components. Our Ebay user ID is pie, and we have many thousands of positive feedbacks.
FORCEFIELD was created in 1998. One day DanB purchased a computer and browsed the web for the first time. He gave eBay a try. Dan immediately became hooked as he experimented selling a variety of odd products, and qucikly discovered that surplus magnets had tremendous appeal.
The next step was the creation of the web site. Initially it was a scanned image of a hand-written sign, declaring "FORCE-FIELD" with a phone number.
Since then, we have been gradually growing, selling larger numbers of a greater variety of products. Otherpower.com was our next big project, a natural thanks to the remote rural environment where much of our staff lives. Our web sites are continually growing as new products, experiments, information, and functionality are integrated into the pages. The project has grown considerably and has developed into full-time work for many of us.
Our goal is to share our information free of charge with anyone who is interested. Information is a very powerful tool, and we hope our experiments with magnets, alternative energy and experimental science are helpful to you. However, if you need magnets, books or science supplies please consider ordering them from us! We hope you find our pages informative, useful and enjoyable.
We all take up slack when it's necessary. We try our hardest to be friendly, honest, and FAST! It is our goal to provide complete satisfaction for each and every one of our customers--please let us know if you are having a problem, and we'll try our best to help. We currently have 5 full-time and 1 part-time employees, some of whom work at the office, some at home.
