I don’t put enough of the stuff that goes on in my own workshop onto this blog so here is a workshop session where I am winding a coil for a repair for a big machine, and I talk through the process a bit as I go.
This is the windmill we need to fix
This is what the stator used to look like but now it is burned up due to cable fault in a storm
This is the new coil winder design.
Parts of the coil winder – all drilled using the same front piece as a template.

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.
