The verbal threat to cause bodily harm, a severe beating, to kick the crap out of someone.
My Dad would always use this saying when the kids were misbehaving, fighting or just getting on his nerves. "Don't make me put the windmill in motion!" That was his way of saying if we didn't stop whatever it is we were doing then he was gonna beat our butts!
