Decorative wooden mill can be a great decoration for your country site

You want the country to build a decorative windmill? I thought about it before. Now, having gained experience in this business, just in front of the technical aspects of wind structure, and step by step instructions visually confirm my words.

Drawing

Suitable mills drawings can always be found on the Internet, or to base my version (pictured below).

But if you want to get an exclusive design, then it should at least sketch out a rough chart with his own hands. Let it not be beautiful, more importantly, to all sizes and there was an overall plan structures were noted. In this case, you can get something like this:

  • timber;
  • Steel rod with a cross section of 14 mm and a length of 100 cm;
  • Molded 20 mm;

The better will linings, the less the need to process the finished construction

Instruments

  • Roulette;
  • Screwdriver;

It is desirable to use instead of a screwdriver screwdriver. If you do not have such power, I advise you to time to ask someone, because with it the assembly will take place much faster and easier.

Cordless screwdriver allows you to cope with the tightening of screws is practically not making physical effort

Now that you have everything you need, you can begin to collect decorative mill hands.

Assembly

Getting to the manufacture of wooden mill:

  • cut battens to a length of 540 mm;
  • Putting their self-tapping screws in the square, which will skirt the lower part of the structure;
  • perform control measurements of the diagonals, to ensure that no distortions.
yovlryolvpryopr2
  • cut off four identical bar and four identical pieces of plastic pipe;
  • put on tube into bars and fix them with screws, yielding legs without fear of damp dirt.
yovlryolvpryopr3 secure legs with screws in the corners of the inside of the skirt. In this case the plastic edges of all poles should protrude the same distance, which in this case is 120 mm.
yovlryolvpryopr4
  • We put skirt on the legs;

yovlryolvpryopr11 Putting elements of the upper part of the mill with a steel rod and bearing.
yovlryolvpryopr12 install a shelf frame with a bearing through which a steel rod. As a result, the design head is able to swivel.
yovlryolvpryopr13 secure bolts on the basis of the resulting pyramid mill to give a collapsible design. It is important that the windows in the buildings could prolazili hand with key, otherwise further operation will be very difficult.
yovlryolvpryopr14 Putting framework for the wind-wheel.
yovlryolvpryopr15 obbivat the resulting frame with galvanized iron

  • building up on the base of the blade;
  • Set the propeller resulting from sticking to the roof using a steel pin bearing.
yovlryolvpryopr22 impregnate antiseptic all structural elements. So you protect the mill from the negative effects of precipitation.
yovlryolvpryopr23 mount a steel pin pad with a small steel stiffening ribs. It will provide a stable position without tilting the upper part of the movable structure.
yovlryolvpryopr24 install roof with a turntable on the main part of the mill.
yovlryolvpryopr25 colorable construction paints and as a result we get a real decoration of landscape design for your garden.
