Caption: Windmill. 16th century cut-away diagram of a windmill used for grinding corn. The shaft attached to the windmill's rotors drives a grinding stone (marked "V") through a set of cogs. The shaft also drives a winch which lifts sacks of grain up from the ground. Photographed from Le Diverse et Artificiose Machine (1588) by Agostino Ramelli.
