Welding the Frame

The turbine itself will be housed inside of a rectangular steel frame 10 feet tall and 4 feet on either side. This morning I cut down the steel angle that Dan at the Experimental Station gave us and the steel we bought a few days ago. David made quick work of the welding, putting it together in under 2 hours. It may look like an open-sided metal box to you, but it's the first element of the project that's been physically realized.
