Making of the Windpilot Rudder

April 28th, 2009 · 2 Comments

We are well on our way to making the rudder for the windpilot.

Ryce came up trumps finding exactly the correct tube for the shaft and doing some exquisite welding. You can contact him on +507 433 0433 or +507 6429 4288 if you need help with stainless parts. I’ll get to mention all the other people who made significant contributions when I write up fully. Like the body language from Sam off Senor Kon Tiki which said my first foam would fail but he was polite enough to say it looked good.

Photos are now appearing in the gallery.

    “Exquisite welding” is an understatement!!! Mr. Ernesto Ryce has over 40 years of reputable experience in his craft; the detail and precision that he places in everything he does is comparable to none. It is quite an honor to get a sample of his work.
