So I hope you guys enjoy this one like the ones before it.
Step 1: Vanes
I have cut the vanes to shape as designed in Cad. this design is much more effective in retaining the wind and producing rotation energy. trust me i tried many diffrent cuts and i wasted alot of money to come up with this one, so take my advise.
note: I rendered a drawing for you to see how to cut your vanes (PVC).
I hope I explained it correctly..
And A 1/8" hole is drilled at each side and it is 1" from side and 1" away from bottom.
Again you have to alternate the pvc pipes because of the flange end.
That is it.
