Hugh Piggott Workshop 2009 (sort of blog) Workshop Setup

Day 6
We  went to visit Andy and Margaret to see where the new turbine will be going.

 

Discussing the wiring for the new system
This should be a windy spot, it has good height and is open
 Another view of the proposed site
Robert is making a wish on a wishing tree, the whitethorn or hawthorn tree is the old Celtic pagan wishing tree
Andy’s Bennelli 650 (because Jimmy likes bikes too)

 

 

 


 

Day 5
We set up the Cran Óg wind powered internet café and now all lost in cyberspace.

 

 

 

 

 


Setup Day 4
The sun was out again today and we finished setting up the workshop space.


Welding workshop, the over exposed bits in the photo are unusual here this summer
Hugh arrived in Galway airport now it’s all systems go.
Next update will hopefully be on Monday

 

 

 


 

Setup Day 3
A better day with the sun shining but some big showers.

The roof got finished on the new space with some help from Toirneach the horse and Shadow dog

We laminated two big planks out of 4×2 red deal with epoxy resin

Using nice big clamps

We ended up with 4 blanks for a 4.8m turbine. On the right is a set of blades for a 4.2m machine a bit hard to see. And in the middle is a cedar blank for a 2.4m turbine.
