The best place to research old plans is Popular Mechanics from 1900 to 1950. (If you can find a good old library that didn't pitch them.) Reprints are available in paperback book form called The Boy Mechanic vol 1, 2 and 3. Lindsay of Chicago also has the manual for sale.

The best old manual still available for plans on carving props and several windmill plans is the LeJay Manual (1945).

Before you consider the construction of your own wind power devices you should read the LeJay Manual, published by Lindsay Publication. I just ordered a new one, as mine is very old and tattered. Lindsay wrote:
- Do you still carry the LeJay manual? If so, how much in U.S.
- Jay Mullin The Wind Works
- The cost of the LeJay Manual is $8.95 plus $1.25 for shipping. If you send us your address, we will send you our catalog.
