Windmill

Submitted to Show Off

Sometimes when I am playing my video games I see things that look cool and I want to try to make them. One game about a post apocalyptic world had an old airplane set on a tower that had been modified to act as a windmill to pump water. I liked it and so here is my version. Initially I was going to make it look like the original, but decided to go more modern. I was also going to have it actually pump water into a barrel and have the barrel turn a water wheel, but the mechanics was more than I wanted to tackle in one project, so the water wheel is coming on it's own. I used my 4300 rotary tool and accessories along with the drill press and router table.
