Roofing Wind Turbine Project #2

So I'm happy to present my second project from my roofing wind turbines...

Perhaps you remember my first project from them.... 

And if you REALLY think back, you'll remember where this all started from.... 

And how I took them apart.... 

and how yucky some of the parts were!... 

It took a LOT of work and scrubbing (it was from a roof afterall -- tar -- EWWWW)....  

And one of the pieces I finally got from that was this... 

SOOO, I drilled a few small holes in the rim... 

Cut a thick piece of wood the size of the circular area... 

And did the same with a mirror (using my handy dandy new circular glass cutting tool, of course -- I LOVE THAT THING)....  

Then I put mirror adhesive on the wood to stick the two together... 

And after placing it inside the opening, I drilled some screws through the rim holes into the wood to hold everything in place... 

And it easily mounted onto the wall by simply nailing through the existing holes (with ROOFING NAILS, of course!)  

TA DA!  An industrial  mirror!...........next!!

That's a cool mirror! You really did make the junk metals of the old turbine useful again. Maybe you can also turn that spiral part into a work of art. May I see your reliable glass cutters so that I can include it in my construction shopping list?
