the coffee can revisited
« on: April 20, 2016, 04:58:52 AM »
This was a little while back so I decided to use the coffee cans as the curved part of the Lenz type VAWT

I'll just use some foamboard for the flat part for now ....
about 1ft.x1ft. should do it for now...no pics for now cause both of my cameras went south  :o

  Curiosity got the better of me Norm.  How is it going?
  No camera is a bummer.

   One to go, good progress.
   Hear you about lawn cutting,  it's taking about 3 hours every day to
keep up here.  Having decent moisture is great though.
   Fires----biggest around Fort Mac, 270 miles north of us.  Devastating
for all the folks that had to evacuate, many lost everything.
   Will enjoy pics, when you are able.

slow going on the WT old and the recent heat is really getting me down
one day at a time ....even daydreaming about projects I could do is
enough sometimes .....just watching my new neighbor tires me out  :)
In less than a years time he has cleaned out the recent neighbors house that was trashed garbaged .....built a 2 car garage, than a shed , outdoor
swimming pool enclosed with fence, had a gray metal roof on house ,
remodeled the house ...new windows.....and almost total LED lights thru out
the whole 2 story house  whew !
