During Joshua Klein’s research into the woodworking life of Jonathan Fisher of Maine, Joshua has found several tantalizing entries in Fisher’s journal about mechanical marvels he has invented or made for his workshop. But perhaps most interesting is when Fisher hooks up his lathe to his windmill.
Joshua has been looking for other historical references to people using wind power for turning. Check out his blog entry here.
If you have any clues for Joshua, drop him a line.
