Rotor Assemblage 2

On Sunday we cut our sheet of Lexan into six pieces - two pieces short of what we need. These pieces fill the spaces between the ribs and will allow the turbine to catch the wind, like a sail. Bob finished drilling the holes in the shaft and we started to bolt the ribs on the next day. I ordered a few more pieces of Lexan for the remaining pieces and to make covers to protect against rain.
