The "crank" that first created the windmill ÖI hate to be the one to break this to you, but cranks and windmills donít go together, itís all done with gears.
The "crank" that first created the windmill dident really know how the air flow could be used to extract "free" energy.I fear you are tilting at windmills.
In English the word for the Ďarmsí of the windmill is sails (les voiles) and if you look at drawings of early windmills, thatís what they look like. This suggests that the inventor did know that air flow could extract ďfreeĒ energy. The clever bit was working out how to change a translational motion into a rotary one.
Bet they burnt him at the stake.
