Wood chopper whirigig windmill

3D model description

I remember these from my childhood so had a go at re creating it.
Turns into wind and rotates perfectly.

You will need some 3mm stainless rod for the propeller shaft (62mm long)and pin for it to rotate on. All screws are M4 and you will need a tap to make the threads to accept the screws. I used M4 grub screws to attach the propeller and crank wheel.

Thank you so much for the comment, I always get nervous when I get a notication of a comment.
Thanks for taking the time, any problems let me know.

Printing this now, thanks so much for the model, its brilliant!

Basically I mean you need a 3mm length of stainless rod for the whole windmill to sit and rotate on as the wind blows and turns it to face wind.
