Hi Mark,

I just did a google of Alston windmills, . A few advertisements of yesteryears Ads, but not much else .

You could go further and try and contact some of the "Southern-Cross" restorers ,through Google or similar sites.

Best of luck with your restoration ,

I have an old Alston windmill on my farm. Not sure of the model, may be an ALSTON 1927 ENCLOSED DOUBLE GEARED WINDMILL.

The blades are all missing and the head side covers are missing but the gears are still there if you are still interested.
