Amazing Bus Conversion - Part 1 - Wind Turbine


Every once in a while we stumble upon some truly amazing projects.  This bus was a conversion from an old yellow school bus.  This is upcylcing at its very best.  The interest that we have in this project is that it uses Kee Klamp fittings in a number of different areas of the construction.

Here the author shows the use of Kee Klamp in the construction of a wind turbine support

The turbine is placed on top of a 10 piece of 1-1/2 Schedule 40 Galvanized Pipe

C50-8 Connectors secure the braces to the upright.

The upright is connected to the decking with a 62-8 Flange.

The bracing is connected to the deck with C58 Swivel Flanges.
