For several years now, I've wanted a windmill. I used to have one of the 8 foot cheapies and it was nice while it lasted. Once it was gone I made a promise to myself to BUILD a nice windmill around 15 or 16 feet high. Well today was the day. I bought the head kit from Lonestar Windmills out of Ross, Texas. Wonderful people to deal with. I had to put the entire head together and then build the base. They give you a material list and cut sheets to get everything right. It was pretty easy really.
So I started with this.
Going through the blades, one by one.
All blades installed.
Head complete and ready to go.
Here's the pile of lumber, some of the pieces laid out and one side done.
Finished base waiting to be moved and on the trailer ready to go to its new home. Believe me when I tell you this thing is HEAVY!
Getting settled into it's place in the yard.
Finally, the finished product! This was a fun project and I highly recommend this outfit.
