Making reinforced pvc blades for wind turbine.mp4
Very Nice Sir! And thanks for the mention, you are the second person I know
of that has attempted to make these blades at this point. If possible you
will want to weigh each one on a digital scale and horizontally oppose
blades of similar weight for balance (even # of blades). I have had success
with using steel pallet strapping as well but its important to make
drilling jig so the rivets are spaced identical. Its great to see someone
else on the planet making these .. can I say Im rather proud!
I Thought Solar Power was Expensive and Complicated I just have to say:
Earth4energy blows the other guides out of the water! You have a really
good product here.Catch the method here. ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM
@wtam69 The rivets are 1/8 x 1/8″ all alminum and are spaced one inch
apart. At the root and tip I space the 1/2″. I will eventually do another
video with better details. Also, I imagine someone will look at this and
come up with a better way. Thanks for the compliment!
did you have to spray varnish the sealer into your pma?
@belgrademachine You certainly made it look easy but it isn’t. Just
riveting properly is a challenge. What size rivets do you use? Weighing
each piece is a great idea although I don’t have a scale for that purpose
(I can ask the Post Office clerk to weigh them, not). I wouldn’t even
bother making such a blade if it weren’t for your videos. Thanks for all
the good tips. You embody the essence of Youtube, sharing something useful
and doing it in a respectful manner.
I wonder if its possible to heat the blades up and make them into an ideal
@trailkeeper If I were to do it, it would probably melt :))
@belgrademachine Thanks for the info.
