for our second year assignment we were asked to create a wind turbine with a budget of £50. With the aim to generate the most amount of power. we had seven weeks to come up with the "Albatross Wind Generator"
For this step you will need: 80mm length of wood 50mm*50mm 65mm length steel rod 8mm 1 inexpensive had held drill
To create the blade hub we took an 80mm piece of wood, and used the lathe to create an 80mm cylinder witch was rounded at one end with a diameter of 40mm. We then drilled a 50mm deep hole with an 8mm diameter into the flat end and inserted a 65mm steel bar such that it would protrude at the end. We then need to drill 6 more holes around the outside of the hub, 2 lines of three 6mm holes; these will be used to attach the blades.
