Raising the Homebrew Homemade Wind Turbine Wind Tower wind generator

Here I am using a hand winch to raise a 36' windtower for a 8.5' diameter wind turbine. Near the end I test the winch brake by letting the tower down slightly. This was a homebuilt project. You can see the project at www.mindchallenger.com/wind. You can also view other stuff at www.mindchallenger.com

    As I posted on the info section I deliberately tested the winch brake. I had tested it with just the tower. I needed to know it worked under a controlled condition.
