Home made gas turbine cranks out the heat


Yet another homemade gas turbine project. This one is a pretty heavy relic from the past (2001) but it’s documented too well not to cover here. Check out the oil pump and ignition system close-ups, really nice detail here.

    I must be seeing things: Is the exhaust port REALLY pointing right at the face of anyone looking at the instrument panel?

    I’m going to guess that’s an intake into the compressor. Nevertheless, i wouldn’t want to be near that thing while it’s spinning at 1,000,000 RPM.

    Yes, that’s the intake pointing forwards. But forget the turbine… LOOK at the half built R2D2 behind the turbine!!!

    I think he’s working on a Batmobile-R2!
