today's lesson

Post by mtblah »

today i started installing the fan sections to the arms.
Those of you that are like me, the 1st windmill experience , pay close attention to the masters of the craft !
follow the written directions and read them several times till you understand !
i read in an earlier chat asking if the fan should be assembled on the ground or up in the air after the tower is up ?
I took almost every tool in my box to get the sections onto the arms, dont bother to try it in the air.
Maybe the master craftsmen who have done this stuff for years can assemble in the air but not this novice !
It doesnt take long to find out who the really smart guys are so pay attention and dont be afraid to ask ?
Thank you windybob.

You are welcome.
Memory plant.... Change or clean the air filter in your air compressor! Mine runs 1/4 as much, and tools run better.

Believe it or not. It is easier to assemble the wheel with the mill face down on the ground near where you are going to put the mill up.
