    Here is a simply COOL VIDEO update of the "Heavy Turbine factions" Axil Motor donation.

    Chris
    I got Steadfast's generator reworked for his project. It hits 14 volts at about 250 rpm, which will work good with 7 foot Wincharger blades and should get him making power around 6 mph wind speed or so. It ended up at about 33 lbs.

    I'll get it out to you next week.

    That video is pretty darn cool if you ask me...
    I am kinda feeling bad for Tony at Huricain...
    Chris has definently thrown down the gauntlet!
    Both my Father in law and I are eagerly awaiting the chance to play with Chris' Axial Generator!

    This weekend, We had some small loose end tie ups and one interesting inovation we completed.
    Here they are:

    Many of the engineer guys HATED the "Ghetto Hose Clamp" attachment on the end of the shed anchor.
    so we made an inovation change to it: here are the before and after picts:

    Next, we shored up the tree anchore with proper turnbuckles...
    (They were temporarily just wrapped around the trees and clipped.)





    Did I mention I grounded my mast?
    I am glad I did Because it was hit by lightning 2 days ago...

    The new bracket which will hold the axial generator pitched at a 8% angle upward.

    8% angle displayed with the Chis' Axial Generator installed.


    Tail installed: this ia a "homebrew" by the book designed for a 7ft turbine.
    you can see the tail vane as it glue drys on the dolly in the back ground.

    Laying out the tail vane bracket...
    Pre-spot weld: The white stuff is kaowool ... 3000degree proof stuff...
    (to keep the pretty painted wood from burning)


    mounted tail vane.
