Another unconventional fix, this time the chimney turbine.
|The Chimney Turbine|
Come the weekend, and I jump on the roof to get it out, disassemble it, to find a rusty bearing at the very bottom. The hole where the axle is assembled is protected from water ingress, but I guess not protected enough, and over the years, some water accumulated, and got the bearing rusty.

A trip to the local hardware store later, and I ordered the bearings on eBay, from some German store. The local store closed at 12:00 on a saturday!

They arrived today, so I prepared it all, ready for final assembly and replacing it on the roof!
