Paddlewheels

We are still getting all the pieces together for our experimental streams. Yesterday we checked in with the welder we hired in Narok to make the shafts and paddlewheels that will turn the water in the stream channels. He did a great job of fashioning 12 paddlewheels out of a large sheet of steel and a pipe. Next step: affixing the paddlewheels to the shaft and building supports for the shaft so the whole 6 m of steel turns as one unit.
