A maglev bearing for my VAWT

I came up with a simple way to make a bearing for my VAWT.

Two overlapping pieces of aluminium tube, a nylon bush (from a watering system joiner) and two opposing magnets.

Works really well.


  1. ther friction between the tubes themselves is still there, right?

  2. This is such a nice blog to read. It is an interesting article. You have spoken your thoughts very well in this. The author has done a great job with this blog. Great.
