My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

Diameter 0.25 in.
Length 5 in.

You Can:

  • Attach blade designs to the Wind Turbine Hub for blade design experiements


  • Understanding angles
  • Understanding the relationship between energy and forces
  • Designing controlled experiments
  • Developing and using physical models
Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I just buy 1/4-inch dowels from my local hardware store?

    Yes, but just as a 2 x 4 is not exactly 2 inches by 4 inches, dowels from the hardware store may not be exactly 1/4 inch. You may need to shim store-bought dowels with a little piece of masking tape. KidWind's 1/4-inch dowels will always work with their hubs.

  • Are the wood dowels sustainable?

    Yes. KidWind's dowel supplier is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.
