Insert the bearings into the grooves and holes to fix the second part of the square pieces with screws.


studs stainless steel insert in both bearings, washers and nuts to fix.



To make the mill carefully for accurate marking holes for the pins in the dome, the assembled mechanism mounted inside the ring, and a hemisphere at one end of the hoop, and the opposite - exactly the same height.In a place where the pin rests in a semicircle - make a mark and then the hole.


Dome glue the ring, securing with tape.


mechanism bolted to the circular base of the mill and dress hemisphere.


Dome fixed in four places with screws.


Fasten blade

for central fastening a suitable square bar of 40 mm thick, which is the circle markings.Stepping back from the edges of a quarter of the length of the sides, in the center of the four drill holes are not through a large drill.On the reverse side to make a circular attachment recess 30 mm.Drills, equal to the thickness of the pin mechanism to drill in the center of the hole.The sides perform one hole is strictly middle.Give the finished part circular.





From template to saw blade 4 , their size depends on the size of the mill.



for each wing to prepare one frame bar to do in the end the hole in which the lock pin with a screw-threaded or bolt.On the other hand glued to the bar blade.




The big hole in the mounting clips to insert, screw the blade lock nuts and washers.




assembled structure mounted on a stud mill.




following modification of the wind turbine is constructed much easier, but it is no less attractive.

Prepare two square parts to the frame: the upper side 300 mm, the base - 400 mm.These blanks, like the rest of the skeleton, will be covered with clapboard on top, so you can use the manufacture of chipboard or plywood sheets from old furniture or other second-hand materials.At the center of both parts to make holes.


for precision assembly between the two bases established long rack of about 600 mm, which is fastened with screws to the two squares through the central hole.Then he measured the length of the side edges of the trapezoid cut slats desired length.They fasten with screws to the two grounds - the frame is ready.


for roof made two isosceles triangular workpiece sizes of choose your own taste.Rails installed between parts of desired length.They are fixed to the triangle with the self-tapping screws.In the lower part of the roof is required to nail on the middle pair of rails for the connection with the case.mill size in the final form will be about one meter excluding wings.


sheathe the lower part of the frame clapboard.Metered detail nailed special nails to the rails, mark up, or drill a hole in the right place and fasten with screws.


Triangles roof lining are trimmed in the vertical direction - so looks better.Then the roof bolted to the body.Interestingly this mill will look with windows and a door, which cut into the skin of a jigsaw.


In the center of the triangle of the roof to make a hole in which to insert the bolt pancakes.Secure it with two washers and nuts.The roof lining close, and all the corner joints close decorative corner bar. melnitsa_foto6

will look like blades of finished mill - a matter of taste and imagination of everyone.In this project, they are made of pieces of wooden slats, downed small finishing nails.In the center of the two carrier bars is a hole and they must be mounted on the bolt, nut and are held together by two washers.
