Low budget wind turbines

(Via Gab)

So the world has gone all Mad Max on you and you need to make some energy. You didn't stock up on solar panels, you don't have access to a stream suitable for micro-hydro (Who does?) and wind turbines were out of your budget before everything went to hell.

Could you scrounge up some blue barrels and plumbing pipe?

Be sure to catch Part 2 on Youtube, where he adds the actual power production, as well as the bigger 6 barrel version (before the gun grabbers think it's a firearm and start trying to ban it). Hackaday also has a lot of other interesting stuff scattered about if you have the time to go down that particular rabbit hole.

The comments on the videos are full of suggestions for improvements, plus the usual BS YouTube idiots.
