Thanks for the kind words everyone.

SparWeb, do you think I could use my Napoleonic water rights to pick up girls at the pub? It sure sounds impressive.

Very impressive! Do you have any more pictures of the turbine and the assembly/mounting of the turbine and axel? I dont fully understand how you mounted in the conical space.
Thank you :)

Well done, Blueskies.  Gotta love progress even if it takes longer than planned

The conical space is the tailrace where the water exits the turbine, the bottom of the cone is submerged so it is full of water and effectively adds head to the turbine. The turbines mount to the bolts on top of the cones.

Hi
 
Being tapered will also mean there is a reduced chance of back pressure on the turbine so there is a scavenging effect clearing the water more efficiently.
