Have you ever wondered what you would do for light and entertainment do if you had no power, no candles, and no television, but you did have a plentiful supply of bacon?
Of course you have. But wonder no more, because I have come up with the highly entertaining Bacon Powered Windmill for hours of power outage fun.
We all know how nice it is to sit and stare at fire; well with this contraption you not only get fire, but a whirling, turning, spinning, rotating wheel as well.
I would like to thank Charlie at Goulburn Water Systems for the inspiration for this one.
Step 1: Assemble Your Materials
Most importantly you will need a Bacon Powered Lamp as described in my earlier Instructable. This lamp is proving highly useful.
In addition to the lamp you will need the top (or bottom) of a large tin. I used the bit left over from making my Bacon Powered Bacon Stove, a length of stiff wire (high tensile wire or a bike spoke - that kind of thing) about 150mm long, and apart from some basic tools that's about it.
