Today we share another CD3WD PDF, this one is from W.R. Breslin and is a construction manual to build a Small Mitchell Turbine.
The document says that the time and resources required to construct this small turbine depends on several factors, most impactful is the availability of people willing to work…. (sounds like most homesteading projects).
However, it sets out that it will take about 40 hours of unskilled labor, another 40 of skilled labor, and about 8 hours of welding.
The efficency of this type of turbine is about 80% which is great for a small homemade hydroelectric generator.Small Michell (Banki) Turbine
