The Tower Windmill from Ugears is more than a mechanical model. It is an exciting adventure into the history of old England designed in "Victorian steampunk skeleton" style. The model is based on the Chesterton Windmill, a 17th- century cylindrical stone tower windmill that was built outside the village of Chesterton, Warwickshire county.
When spinning rapidly the aerodynamic twist sails create fairly strong wind. It also can work the other way around: blowing air directed at the sails will make them spin. Use a fan to demonstrate to your kids how real windmills operate. A double planetary gear reducer with differently shaped gears provides the necessary speed.
The model is powered by a removable rubber band motor. Once the motor is removed, the Windmill can work in a manual mode that allows you to observe and examine the fascinating complex mechanism in detail.
Self-assembly, no glue needed
