Wind Turbine Project Part 11 (Tower Repair)

The student organization I sponsor, Engineers with a Mission, is building a wind turbine for the World Hunger Relief farm. A month and a half ago, we ran into a problem when we put the tower together. One of the steel pipes developed a crack in it, and it took a while for us to get it repaired.

Coordinated by David (good job, David) we had our great departmental machinist, Mr. Orr, bring a welder out to the site, and also a generator to power the welder. The repair was successful, so the project can continue...
