lots of patience & lots of acetylene gas & oxygen to do the brazing,sometimes it takes longer to make the jig to hold things in place while you braze them,like the hay rake and the wind mill. most of the material is horse shoe nails, washers, & nails. & stuff i have laying around my shop. i'll try and post some more sometimes, just to share it with friends on here!

i used to sell enough of the scenes of corrals , wind mills, meat smokers, play ground, to pay for, my gas & oxygen, beer, & put a little in the bank. had so many other projects like hunting, fishing, house remodeling, & of coarse a business to run to make a living, so i set it aside for a while, been thinking of starting it up again since I'm retired & to crippled to work on my house . you know people that has seen or been around a wind mill are getting fewer & fewer all the time . I've had young folks ask me what they where used for. there are very few people that use them anymore around here, there are more that use wind mills for decoraction
now than what they where designed for, to pump water. to easy to flip a switch. isn't that funny we are getting our power from wind generators now so we can flip that switch to pump the water. good shooting !
