May 2021 Book update

Hi everyone,
I just got back from my first practical wind turbine course in this year after the lockdown.
It was taught for a group at a youth education center.
During this course we have built and tested some design improvements that I developed recently for the wind turbine. That includes the rotor blade carving technique for example, which has a faster workflow now and results in a better blade shape than in the original 2F wind turbine design. Since the blades are the essential part in harnessing power from the wind, I wanted to put extra effort in here to ensure a proper workflow and result for the book. The blades came out really nice using that improved technique.

At this point I would like to take the the chance and announce the practical wind turbine building courses that I will do with PureSelfMade this year. You can take your chance and learn how to build a Piggott Wind Turbine in these courses:

EDIT: The 2021 course links from this section have been removed. Click here for the next course dates.

As many of you know, theses courses are my main occupation and it requires quite some work to organize and teach them. I try to put as much time possible into the book work besides that and use the courses to test technical designs, workflows and drawings for the book in a practical situation.
All the best,

I started PureSelfMade in 2013 to develop and spread practical knowledge on homebuilt small wind turbines, independent energy systems, off-grid lifestyle and more. In my hands-on workshop courses I teach simple and effective solutions for those subjects and share my enthusiasm with like minded people. Read about my background.
