Windmill construction plans and pump information
[Return to Topics]

Does anyone know of a source (books, articles, web site etc, etc,) for windmill and/or windmill tower construction plans?

Also, where can I find operation and construction details for a windmill pump (piston or draw plunger type)??

Thanks

I think you might be better off finding a used windmill and pump. A lot less work for the smae money.

Here's a link to Vintage Windmills. A "webzine"about windmills. Good place to start learning. Good articles about restoration, and building the vanes on the fan.

Hi Ted,
We see windmills on eBay often. There are several outfits that still build them. Where are you located? Are there any old farms nearby that have windmills & towers that you could buy intact?
Are you wanting to pump water, or produce electricity?

You might call Lehman's, they do a lot of advising on electric-free watering systems and they also have lots of books...I think I remember one on wind-powered water.

Tom
