My low buck project was a home built anemometer.

Parts required:
3 plastic Table spoon measuring spoons from the dollar store $3
1 spray paint can lid, free
1 bicycle spedometer, Walmart, $10
1 bent stantion free
1 BBQ rail mount, free, found in garbage at the club, if you believe it
1 bearing, free scrounged form a dead VCR (ask your friends)
Total cost: $13


Is there a picture of this anywhere? I want to build one, step it on top of my mast and run the wire down the inside of the mast to the bike speedometer.
