The physics of simplicity

Come summer vacations or any other long vacations and it becomes a challenge for parents to keep their little ones fruitfully occupied. Well, now you can introduce your child to the fascinating world of windmills and the principles behind their working with the fun DIY Tower Windmill Mechanical Puzzle. Let us walk you through this intriguing product with a few FAQ's.

Q1. How is the Ugears Tower Windmill Mechanical Puzzle different from other puzzle sets?

Well, the finished model is not only mechanical (produces motion) but also sheds light on the rich history of old England. The model is a working replica of the Chesterton Windmill, a 17th-century cylindrical stone tower windmill that was built outside the village of Chesterton, Warwickshire county. Built around 1632-33, the Windmill was restored between 1965 and 1974 and today it is the earliest tower mill in England to retain any of its working parts. 

Q2. What is the principle behind its working?

This model is designed in “Victorian steam-punk skeleton” style is based on a prototype from Chesterton. When spinning rapidly the aerodynamic twist sails create fairly strong wind. It also can work the other way around: blowing air directed at the sails will make them spin. Use a fan to demonstrate to your kids how real windmills operate. A double planetary gear reducer with differently shaped gears provides the necessary speed. For further details refer to the following link: https://ugearsmodels.in/tower-windmill.html
