WINDMILL

17. December 2018.

In the eighties of the XIX century, there were 11 windmills in Oroma. At the end of the 20th century, there was only one so-called “bayus” of windmills, which was built in the sixties of the nineteenth century. The date of construction was cut into flour bars. The windmill was in Ustorka before. Her owner, hoping for better reasons, dismantled the internal equipment of the mill and transferred it to the Great Road. The wind farm was in the possession of the Kovač family in the sixties, and the last owner was Ištvan Kovač. The cherry roof of the windmill is mobile. The mobility is provided by a wide hardwood disc. One side of the high roofing is a drain, through which a wide moving axle passes. On the edges of the edges are fastened braces, and sails with iron strips. Initially, the Oroma mill functioned with four wings to take two with a capacity drop.In the attic space stands a large wheel that was driven by a large drum. In the same attic space on the wide axle, the main axle is connected. On the second floor is a large drum, which is driven by a wheel with teeth. This system starts the main shaft. On the second floor there is also a quick wheel that drives small drums, in this case three. From the small drums to the millstones on the first floor were led by iron villas. Mill stones were made up of two parts. The bottom of the dolphin was attached to the gypsum in four places. The rocks were covered with a cowhide ring. Above the rocks he was mounted, also from the fir, a grain basket. There was still a stone-throwing device on this floor. Today only movable lower stones have remained from this mechanism. Flour was discharged from the millstones to the crates using a pipe.In the ground floor, large hexagonal silk sieves were placed to separate the flour mills. In this space the so-called. The copossa served to purify cereals. Outside the mill there was a mechanism for turning the sails in the direction of the wind. The windmill facility was significantly damaged. The outer part of the wing mechanism and the other part are completely destroyed. From the grinding mechanism, only the fragments have been preserved, although the same existed at the time of putting this object under protection as a cultural monument.only fragments are preserved, although the same existed at the time of putting this object under protection as a cultural monument.only fragments are preserved, although the same existed at the time of putting this object under protection as a cultural monument.
