Woodmanse windmill restored in JoDaviess, County, IL

Last weekend’s work found us in beautiful JoDavies County, IL where we installed four rebuilt windmills in Mt Carroll, Galena, Apple River, and Elizabeth,IL.  Here are a couple pics of the job at Elizabeth…an 8′ Woodmanse “Oil Bath” model. Although it had rained on the other 3 jobs, the rain held off here until we were packing up-yea!  Paul

I can create and apply any custom design.  Instead of paint, I use an extremely strong material that actually etches right into the metal for outstanding durability! It’s an epoxy resin material available in many popular colors. Nice!!!
