Comments from Bill
The TLG 500 just arrived, I am impressed. (4 shipping days!) GREAT! It is at my work for show and tell! Every one agrees It is well built, I am looking forward to putting it in the air this week end.
In the attachments you will find several photos of the tip over tower project from your web site. The work was done in 15 degree weather last week end, notice the ice where I was welding) I did add counter weight to the lower end of the 3" 21 ft. pipe to off set the top 8' pipe and the weight of the generator. The other generator in the background is my first home built wind generator that adds a small charge to our batteries. We also have solar panels, they don't do much at night... I have towers on my land and considered putting the TLG 500 up higher in the air. After talking with you I took your advise and constructed the tip over tower. Thank you for the great advice. Looking forward to this week end and putting the generator in the air. Hope the March winds work in our favor.
More when it is working.
Thanks again for a great well built generator.
Here are some corrected files for the web
site if you would like to use them. I took out some guy wires and trees
that were in the way. Feel free to use them how ever it works for you.
