Step 3: Tools/Materials
Very few tools and materials were used to make this turbine. Here they are!
- Epilog laser cutter
- Dremel rotary tool
- Hand drill
- 1/8″ Acrylic sheet – I used a cool orange one I found in the shop.
- 6-32 threaded rod. It’s roughly 1/16″ diameter.
- 6-32 washers and nuts.
- 1/8″ diameter brass tube – this is from K&S metals and I got it at the local hardware store. Awesome tubes to work with.
- 5 minute clear epoxy
1. Inkscape is an open-source vector graphics creator. If you’ve heard of Adobe Illustrator, this is like a free version of that program. I’m using it because it’s free and available, but feel free to use your vector-graphics editor of choice. Or you can get Inkscape for free here.
