« Part 11: Making the door frames Part 12 of Spinnekop (windmill) series Part 13: Foundation »

The “boventafelment” is also anchored on the beams with 4 metal anchors. On the drawing these are placed on the outside. But I want to be able to take the cladding off to show the inside. So I will change the layout and put the anchors on the inside

Starting off with some spokes out of a old bicycle

Some heat to bend the steel

The finished hooks are placed alongside the beams

They are placed in a recess so the pancake can sit flush

Drilling nail holes into the anchors

Drilling and nailing (with 0,8×10 mm) the anchor

The end result
