Turbine Supports

David and I put together the upper and lower supports for the turbine helix today. The lower support is welded to the frame, but the top one will be bolted on. This will allow us, and future custodians of the turbine, to easily remove the helix for repairs or tinkering. I also hammered down the ends of the pipes so we can thru-bolt them to the frame with greater ease. Bob is definitely a superior pipe-flattener.

Two photographers from the Maroon took pictures of me and David for an upcoming article (coming out tomorrow?) on the projects being supported by the New Initiaves Fund.

A good way to take out your aggression.

The upper support.

Getting there...
