De Grauwe Beer 3

In the past, the miller had to pay close attention the speed at which rotation took place and if needed, adjust the speed. Over time, a governor system was adopted, which applied a brake if the speed increased beyond a fixed limit. This enabled the miller to free up time to devote to other activities around the mill. There was an addition of a powered (I think diesel) drive for the times that the wind power was insufficient.

 

The gear teeth meshing with the circular cogs means that engaging and disengaging is smooth and wear related to entry and exit is lesser. Eventually there is wear of course, but then the miller only needs to rotate the circular cog by about ninety degrees and the same worn out parts are good to go, once more!

Jolis détails, j'aime les couleurs.
Ayush Basu: The timbre tones in a somewhat dark situation, Martine.
That is very interesting.
Ayush Basu: Then I am pleased, Michael.
Great texture...
Ayush Basu: The timbre in a somewhat dark situation, Larry.
Engrenage impressionnant, et merci pour les explications.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you! These mechanisms interest me and it was my pleasure to put up this description, Pascale. And have a good weekend!
You know how much windmills fascinate me to no end, Ayush. I especially love the wood for these machinations!
Ayush Basu: I like it too, Ginnie. It is impressive how they are still surviving with little maintenance.

It's primitive but it works
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, it requires a bit of tender love and care but works just fine, Chris.

Ayush, my kind of picture, LOVE it. when I close my eyes I can just hear those gears going smoothly.
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, I was able to see it in action too, Astrid. And it was a pleasure to see it.

Very good Ayush, I thought that the wooden teeth would not last too long but, I suppose they are easy to replace.
Ayush Basu: Good point, Chad. When they wear off a bit, the miller simply rotates the round pegs by 90 degrees and they can be used again.
cool picture, Ayush... using round cogs, makes sense!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, and when they wear off a bit, the miller simply rotates the round pegs by 90 degrees and they can be used again, Elaine.

Interesting text you provided. Love the detail you chose for the picture.
Ayush Basu: Thank you! These mechanisms interest me and it was my pleasure to put up this description, Louis.
Smart things come about after using a tool for a while.
Ayush Basu: I was indeed amazed by the resourceful techniques employed, Mary.
Made to last. Windmills make a lot of sense
Ayush Basu: They were used for a variety of reasons and really are a part of the Dutch identity, Bill
