Build your own windmill

For those handy people, you can build your own 4 foot high windmill as suggested by Bruce K at GreenNexxus.

How to Build a Wind Turbine

A turbine of this size, should generate about 100 watts in a strong wind. This will never be enough to take you off the grid, but the project is quite simple and you will learn lots. Once I had gathered the parts I needed, I had the turbine finished in a day. I have tried to include the basic instructions and some pictures.
Hat tip to Marnie Niemi for this story.
