2015-05-09 (Sa) Wind Generator Test Base

The strips of plastic cut for the upper support piece were trimmed down to reduce material and provide enough length to cover the holes in the support bracket. Spots were marked on the plastic where the holes were to be drilled and all the plastic pieces were lined up to receive the same holes. Uniformity is important to this project so purchasing identical shelves, while expensive, was important. Each shelving bracket had the holes drilled to 1/4" (6.35mm). The plastic pieces were drilled to 9/32" (7mm) to allow the 1/4" bolts to fit well.
