Ballinamore Day1

This week we are making a 3.1 metre 24v wind turbine using Austrian larch for the blades.

It got off to a nice start and at the end of the day the flat face of two blades was almost finished.

We had to abandon one of the blade blanks because the grain seemed very soft compared to the other two and no mater what way you used the draw knife it kept taking big chunks out but luckily we had another blank and that seems fine.

We also got a start made on the frame.
