Homebrew Wind Power by Dan Bartmann and Dan Fink
Homebrew Wind Power book cover

Three years in the making, our new book "Homebrew Wind Power" has finally gone to press! It's available for immediate shipping from our Online Store. Advance reviews have been excellent. This book breaks new ground in the world of home-built wind power: After much detailed discussion of the physics behind extracting power from the wind, the authors give step-by-step instructions for building a 10-foot diameter wind turbine in the home workshop. Our 7-foot and 17-foot diameter machines are also covered in detail. Extensive chapters about towers, failures and prevention, troubleshooting and maintenance, and designing your own turbine are also included, along with extensive appendices. 320 pages, soft cover, 8 x 10 inches, 395 illustrations, ISBN 978-0-9819201-0-8; Published by Buckville Publications LLC, Masonville, CO
