Reconstruction of the
Wilton Windmill 7-08-2004

1. Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines.

2. Create the inscribed regular six-pointed star of circle 1, by constructing two inscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down.

3. Construct the circumscribed circle of the hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) enclosed by triangles 2.

4. Create the circumscribed regular six-pointed star of circle 1, by constructing two circumscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down.

5. Construct the circumscribed circle of star (triangles) 4.

6. Extend all sides of triangles 2 in both directions up to circle 5, as shown.

7. Draw the connecting line between the two intersections of circle 5 and lines 6, immediately to the right of the vertical centerline, as shown.

8. Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to line 7, and tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side.

9. Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1.

10. Construct a circle centered on the vertical centerline, tangent to circles 1 and 3, both at the lower side.

11. Copy circle 10 twelve times, to all intersections of circle 5 and lines 6.

12. Construct a circle centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 3 on the right, and tangent to circle 8 on the left.

13. Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 1.

14. Copy circle 12 three times, centered on the horizontal centerline, tangent to each other, and the righthand one tangent to circle 13 on the left, as shown.

15. Construct a circle concentric to circle 13, tangent to the rightmost circle 14 at the lefthand side.

16. Construct two circles concentric to circle 13, tangent to the other two circles 14 at the lefthand side.

17. Construct a circle centered at the righthand intersection of circle 13 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 13 at the lefthand side.

18. Construct three circles concentric to circle 17, tangent to circles 14 at the lefthand sides, as shown.

19. Circles, triangles and lines 2, 5, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17 and 18 make up the necessary parts for the final reconstruction.

20. Leave out all parts not visible in the formation itself.
