Looking for the old instructions?
A few years ago I was selling a
basic windmill kit. As is the case
with the design shown on this
page, the kit suited the F&P
Smartdrive motor, and was
basically a collection of lasercut
steel parts the user could weld
together to form the building
block of their windmill. The Kit
is no longer supplier, but you
can still see the instructions
and maybe get a few idea's
of your own.

This new windmill for the
F&P motor was designed to be easy to build, and unlike my previous design, needs
no special laser cut parts. You should be able to put it together
with some basic metal working tools and a welder. The following pages dont include details on buiding the turbine, rewiring the Smartdrive or connecting it to your system.
