2015-06-03 (W) Wind Generator Turbine Design Tests

On 2015-05-28 (Th) a PDF was released which described different bottle mounting platforms. At the middle was a version 150mm (6") from end to end. Two were long and two were shorter. The PDF is  available below. A paper print was made at 100% and cut out with scissors. Gaps between the parts were minimal so that the templates could be traced as a single unit assuming a table saw would be used to cut between each piece. This template array was held down and traced with a marker.

Each of the holes was marked with a scratch awl unlike the first version which used a hole punch and marker. Pieces were cut on a scroll saw, the straight edges were sanded on a belt sander, the rounded edges were sanded on a disc sander and the holes were drilled on a drill press. The pieces look uniform.
