Wooden blades for wind generator



Just received the latest hugh’s piggot’s book on wind turbine building, and in the evenings I just thought to try and make somme blades and understand the different tools needed and create a true airfoil, I have made wooden blades before, but know I finally understand the concept fully, I am very happy with them it took me maybe 3 evenings 2 to 3 hours at a time and just using hand tools, keeping the dust down, I am a carpenter and joiner so I could of used power tools and maybe do the whole thing in 3 to 4 hours, but I wanted to know how long and the effort involved with just hand tools,(easy), just make sure they are sharp and take your time, it’s rather relaxing, the tools I used was just a hand saw, square, little spokeshave (definattely need this one), calipers, little hand plane, and tape measure,cheerio, hope you enjoy and visit my website:www.windchasers.eu
