Windmill Restoration September 2008

September 10th 2008. The big day has arrived and there’s not much wind, so at 7.00am we decide to go for it and try to get the cap fitted.

Off comes the roof, for the last time, and then the cap is lifted. After the cap the windshaft is lifted and maneuvered into position.

Next to be fitted is the fantail, followed by the fiberglass dome. It’s been a long busy day, but Phil still finds time for a cup of tea.
