  • The Tower Windmill from UGears is more than a mechanical puzzle
  • It is an exciting adventure into the history of old England
  • The model is based on 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
  • This unique construction with an arched base was presumably built by a prominent figure of the period, Sir Edward Peyto that owned Chesterton Manor at that time
  • The model 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
  • The model is powered by a removable rubber band motor, Once the motor is removed, the Windmill can work in a manual mode that allows you to observe and examine the fascinating complex mechanism in detail
  • A double planetary gear reducer with differently shaped gears provides the necessary speed
  • Resembling a spiral staircase, the rotating base of the arched tower is a part of the screw conveyor mechanism that is a chief part of the model’s mechanism
  • The rubber band motor drives the sails by means of a screw conveyor (worm feeder) and gear transmission
  • Fascinating mechanics of the moving gears will captivate your attention for a long time
  • Origin from the English prototype, the Ugears model also addresses the Spanish classic: the Tower Windmill comes with the figures of the Ingenious Nobleman Don Quixote and his quirky companion Sancho Panza
