Wind & Water
Quick ‘Lewis’ update. Today I made and test fitted the bit that catches the wind i.e. the vane. It’s made of carbon fibre tube infilled with 10mm foam board and covered with duct tape. Gail will be making an orange ripstop nylon cover to finish it off.
I also got the mounting brackets fitted to the pendulum and test fitted it.
Next up is the pushrod linkage to the pendulum and at that point the job’s pretty much done. I now need the weather to calm down so that I can spend time playing with some ideas for linkages to the tiller.
