In 1995 I began collecting windmills for the purpose of erecting my own little windmill museum. As of today, I have not started my museum, but I have collected numerous windmills for the purpose of using them for patterns for many of the windmill parts I now make and sell. This windmill site is an ongoing project of listing many of the parts I sell.
Most of the windmill parts that you will find in these pages are made for the out of production windmills. The brands I have parts for are Eclipse, Standard, Dempster, Monitor, Challenge, Star and Fairbury just to name a few, I use original windmill parts for patterns and manufacture these parts myself to the specifications of the original parts.
I build the wooden wheels for most of the brands of windmills. The picture on the left is of the wheel and tails built for a 25 foot Eclipse on display at the American Wind Power Museum in Lubbock,Texas. I was fortunate enough that they allowed me to make the wood wheel and tails for this windmill. Below is a 22 1/2 foot Standard for which I also made the wood wheel and tails.
