Blading wheels to life

Well phase two is figuring out how to blade the wheels for my wind towers. I figured the simplest and easiest way would be with aluminum tape. After constant thought and looking at the wind towers on Main St. it looked as if aluminum tape is my quickest and easiest option as of now.  Most folks use it for patching up their exhaust on their cars, but it just so happens it worked great for my first round of blading wheels. The blading on the first wheel, a 700 c that isn't pictured, wasn't pretty; but the second wheel, a 26", came out pretty darn nice. I'll be experimenting with different patterns and wheel sizes as I go along. Now to watch them spin!
