Old Fan - One Non Electric Windmill Whilrgig = Help? Answered


Well, I took apart a old fan, salvaged some parts and what I really want to do is make a nice whirlgig for my garden. Well I managed to put everything together without decorating it just yet - just to see how it all fit together - and I'm not understanding how to connect the blade in a way that it will stay connected to the bolt I drilled through the wood and yet still maintain the ability to spin in the wind.

A nut isn't doing it. Any ideas?

Muchly obliged for your help people.
