Looks great Jim  ....  your fettling has born fruit it would seem!

Shames me in that I've had mine for at least a couple of years now, and still haven't given it a go yet.

Jim, you have really made that windmill shine....great finish!!!  I bet your fingers hurt after messing with the dozens of nuts that must be snugged up on the itty, bitty screws.  Been years since I built one, but I can still imagine how my finger tips felt!

Excellent job Jim.

Makes me feel very grateful that Bruce built one for me. 🤠

Not nearly as easy as it looks once it is all put together!

Nice work Jim.  I also know how fiddely those tiny nuts and screws are, as I made one of these windmill's up about 12 years ago.
I remember trying to sqeeze that "O" ring on to the spinle boss a real pain.
