This is a run-up of my home built turbocharger turbojet engine. Long, but maybe of some interest to other engine builders. It is quite old now and dated somewhat and I now know far more about jet engines than I did then. Please go easy on me guys... It is my first video!
I would like to issue a challenge to all fellow Do it Yourself turbojet engine builders and brushless electric R/C park flyer hobbiests/manufacturers out there.
Please comment and discuss the feasibility of mounting a small "outrunner" style permanent magnet brushless electric motor to the compressor side of this and similar engines. I realize that shaft harmonics and bearing limitations will play a very significant role in whether or not such a motor/generator combination would hang together at 140000 RPM or more. Of course, associated power electronics with the ability to switch from starter motor to DC generator would need to be designed as well to efficiently (relatively speaking) produce electricity at these ultra high speeds.
Such a device would mimic some of the hybrid turbocharger or "electrically assisted turbochargers" that have been developed by Garrett and others in recent years. These have been designed, developed and built to reduce "turbo lag" and recover wasted energy in the form of electricity with the intention of supplementing the charging system in vehicles. They have not quite made it to market yet in any production vehicles that I know of. I am crossing my fingers!
A hybrid turbocharger in my opinion is the Holy Grail for DIY turbojet enthusiasts.
Once this exists as an off the shelf device, a whole world of potential uses opens up!
An inexpensive, simple, robust turbojet engine! Heat and electricity with only one moving part!
Imagine a tiny turbocharger based boiler in your basement that would heat your home, heat your domestic water AND charge your batteries in an off-grid or grid tied electrical system.
It would easily burn almost any conventional fuel including natural gas, propane, diesel, kerosene, waste oil, waste vegetable oil, bio-diesel, pellets, garbage and even wood logs as has been proven with the proof of concept device built by myself and Mark Nye at Nye Manufacturing and featured on The Discovery Channel's Daily Planet.
Your comments and discussions about how a PM motor generator could be adapted to this task are anticipated.
As promised, I am currently (slowly) working on a large afterburning VT-50 based engine (actually three of them) that will hopefully produce a combined two or three hundred pounds of thrust and be featured on Youtube soon.
I would like to run all three together in a stretched Quad ATV or mini dragster to take around to the car shows and make some noise. My concept for this engine will to both fuel and lubricate it with waste motor oil. Hopefully I will be able to offer construction plans and combustion chamber kits if it is successful and interest warrants it.
Thanks for looking! Good luck with your projects!
CH-200 First Flight Jan 17 2009
Zenair CH-200 with Continental O-300 six cylinder and Warp Drive prop now
owned by Greg Vosper and Paul Eyles. A work in progress... The airplane is
presently based at Brampton Airport in Brampton,Ontario,Canada.
Many thanks to the helpful members of RAA Chapter 41 for their help,
encouragement and assistance in putting this nice little airplane back in
the air. This is the "first" flight since we purchased it in late 2008.
Lots of little fixes left to do, but at least it flies...
Turbine Jet Engine 50,000 RPM Deutz T-216 100HP SOLD
1960's Deutz T-216 Turbine Engine! Runs on Diesel and has a rating of 100HP
@ 50,000 RPM! I'm looking to sell this unit and I'm open to offers. I have
all the manuals and parts list for the unit. Hour meter shows 1 hour!!!
Will a JET ENGINE made from a LOO roll holder WORK?
Amazing to think that something made from bad materials in such a crude
manner with little attention paid to the specilized maths required to make
these engines work, actullay WORKS. some may argue its nt going to produce
much thrust but the point was could it run at all and it ticked that box

Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

If you are buying a turbo to replace a
worn or broken one it is recommended to investigate the reason for the
original fault and rectify before fitting the new turbo, often problems are from oil starvation and
as such a new oil feed pipe is often recommended Or if a turbo blows seals at high pressure it can often
fill the Exhaust with oil and or
water, blocking the catalytic converter This is just a few of the main
problems from a worn out turbo, for this
reason we do recommend the replacement be fitted by a turbo specialist!

5.5hp Turbocharged Fuel Injected Engine - Bench Test

Rap 24 hp semidiesel, second start attempt.
This video illustrates what happends when these two stroke semidiesels run
out due to too much oil in the crankcase. With my left hand, I block the
injection pump, so from that time the engine run on lube oil only, no
diesel at all. I have heard lots of stories about this from decades ago but
this is the first time, to my knowledge, that it is captured on video.
Luckily we had blocked most of the air intake prior to starting and ended
at somewhat over 1000 rpm. Max operating rpm is 425-450. With full air
supply, I would guess this engine would reach thousands of rpm and I could
only guess what would have happened then...
The electric glowplug short circuited so we had to rely on the propane
burner which had slightly low temperature. In this startattempt, we used an
acetylene burner and got the glowplug bright red. The crankcase was,
unfortunately, filled with too much oil so the engine was running on its
lube oil from the crankcase instead of diesel. Still some trouble with the
fuel injection, doesn't feel right when injecting diesel manually.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
Porting an eBay 20g turbocharger
The price of this turbo will make it a
popular purchase, so I figured I'd air out some tech about ways to improve
it. This thing is not for everybody. I wouldn't feel comfortable bolting
it on my car the way it comes out of the box. I could complain about its
flaws except that so far absolutely none of them have been a deal-breaker
for me. To me it's like an empty canvas. I promise to eat those words if
it happens, and share my poop. Usually I can easily correct these flaws
myself and so can you.
If this thing turns out to perform well with what I do to it... It could
easily be a cheap, quick ticket to an 11-second car. Something you could
do with a free running 1g, a hacksaw, and about $500 worth of fuel
upgrades. Yeah, that would be ridiculous, and I'm bolting it onto a
well-modified car... But that being possible speaks volumes for what a DSM
can really do.
This is no big deal to me. I'd rather guinea pig my car for you in HD so
you guys can decide whether or not you'd spend your money on this. Really
it's an experiment because this isn't my daily-driver, and it contributes
to building a better Colt.
Tools I used involve:
Milwaukee model ???? 1/4" straight-shaft electric DIY grinder
Cone and ball-shaped double-cut burs
180 grit high-speed flap wheel
Dremel with a flex-shaft and a tiny 320-grit flap wheel
a zip tie
10mm combination wrench
tiny flat-blade screwdriver (00) for the e-clip on the wastegate
