Wanted to try one of these for a while, used Steve Ramsey’s pattern for the woodchopper and Fan blade, but modified the rest. Works pretty good in a slight breeze, tried to upload a video, but no luck, I do not have a website.

They pretty much said it all!

Great Job!

Like the rest of these sawdust addicts; sometime , in the future, I will have to try a few! The first is mostly likely going to be junk; so, I have to plan on a few!

Thank you for all the kind comments. As far as a plan, used Steve Ramsey’s pattern, watched his video, and modified what he did. Here is the link to his video.
