Whili-gig build question

#232907 by berry » Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:49 pm

I built a while-gig some years ago. It's never worked very well. Are they supposed to be balanced on the pivot point?
Thanks for reading.

Spelling was not a problem. Meaning was.

So if 'windmill whirlajig' is the subject, I believe not only is balance(of the turbine/propeller) crucial, but also torque requirement varying to drive the motion.

Thanks for the link.
