I also dropped by the UBC machine shop and my good friend Erik was able to donate 2 bearing hubs from a used trailer, which we'll be able to use as bearings for both turbines! Thanks Erik for the material and for the laughs!
So we're still trying to find a way to get the Vancouver community at large involved, either through donating this project to Scienceworld once its complete, or through some kind of community educational installation. Please help us out with ideas! Anything will be helpful!
