It can't be done. You would have to rewire the armature in the generator and I would bet there isn't enough room in the casing to handle the extra windings. I would guess you have a light that is 12v and want to power it with this little generator. How about doing the other direction and change the bulb in the light to 6v?

Lightbulb Another 6v Generator

Correct me if I am wrong, but...

If you could get ahold of another one of the 6v generators, you could hook them both up in series, which would give you 12v.
