Today we got over to the farm to see how the progress was doing!!
over in the neighbors field
this is the Westward view
Thats me standin' at the hub of one of our propellers!---Somehow I felt rather SMALL standin' there!
this was about half way down the blade
same view, different camera settin'
and the main event ----Well they don't call them "PORTA-POTTIES" for nothin'! LOL!
Thursday they will put the blades on our other one and boss invited us to come at 7 am and watch,---and of course bring cameras!
Bolt tension is 1,500 pounds per bolt, x 206 bolts!---Don't think they gonna fall!!
Movement at top of turbine is 3 feet, depending on which way the wind is blowin'---movement BEFORE propeller is installed can be 6 feet!
We have a few more pics in the other camera, but have to wait for batts. to charge so we can get them into the putter, will post them a little later! thanks; sonny
