Yes, here we are, standing around, drinking coffee, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon! We do get some work done somewhere along the way!

Craig, Tim and Clayton checking out the furling action on Tim's turbine. Looks good!

Wow, very cool!

Tim, hard at work grinding his tail pipe.

Rob and Joanne stop for a picture.

Here, they are preparing the magnet disc's to be poured. Everything looks great!

And again, standing around, drinking coffee by the winch! He sure can drink a lot of coffee!

Alan making some measurements on his blades before he continues sanding. Good idea!

Alan is part of a group of people who share a farm near Toronto. Alan is building this turbine to help to power the home on the farm. Check our links page to find out more about the farm. Very interesting ideas!

Craig working on the blades for our new twelve foot turbine. We are hoping to have it up very soon!

Alan still working on his blades!

Look at the size of those blades! Those should generate some power!

Blades, blades and more blades! I think we need a bigger shop!
