Abstract

Since we printed the description of a type of automatic windmill shut-off used on Abydos Station, Port Hedland, in the issue of December, 1951, several readers of the "Journal" have written to describe alternative methods of pulling a mill "out of the wind" when the tank is filled. In a number of cases there were variations of the same idea, and in this article the main principles are described, together with some other ingenious gadgets which the author has encountered over the years.
