      the other source of info and amusement is www.crank.net It doesn't get updated much anymore, but there is some gold there.

      What I just love is the fact that maniacal engineer laid out the groundwork for how these threads usually go. He did this on page one reply #7. Read it and remember as you read the following 63 pages. The word prescient comes to mind.

      Well I'm here to break the mould.

      I've got all the proof I need to explain this new machine.

      The Tesla turbine is a machine that when bought to idle speed by numerous methods will maintain that idle speed and if allowed will accelerate until the radial pressure is so high it prohibits the increase of speed.

      The Tesla turbine is a heat engine.

      It condensers air into water vapour through implosions. Each revolution of the rotor creates more vacuum.

      The vacuum causes water vapour in the air to boil giving off more energy to the rotor.

      It is a chain reaction.

      The common mistakes all youtubers make when building their Tesla turbines are:

      1. No diverging nozzle. Typically they are using a straight port or converging nozzle.
      2. Poorly sealed rotor.
      3. No exhaust channels as per the US Patent 1,061,206 or British Patent 24,001

      Here is a book I would like to reference.

      HEAT ENGINES (BEING THE NEW EDITION OF "STEAM") 1913 By William Ripper, D.Eng. (Sheffield), Hon. D.SC.Eng. (Bristol)

      Longmans Elementary Science Manuals

      "Where the pressure inside the turbine is less than that of the atmosphere, air tends to leak into the turbine and reduce the vacuum"

      Well in Nikola Tesla's case it has to spiral down the plug hole and create even more vacuum!

      I am open sourcing the CAD files to the world.

      I designed this with an ex Cosworth engineer who has a masters in Mechanical Engineering and Marine Engineering. He is currently modelling the best way to sew arteries for his doctorate at Plymouth University.

      It is based on our interpretations of Nikola Tesla's US Patent 1,061,206 and British Patents 24,001, 179,043 & 186,082.

      It features some bearings rated for 156,000rpm.

      Enjoy!

      I am looking forward to the implosions. Implosions are always cool.

      You seem to misunderstand the word 'proof'. No one needs to know how it works. We know very well, and have explained, why it won't.

      We're waiting for you to demonstrate what sheeple we've been.
      Still waiting...

      I will prove it to you guys with the video you've requested and I'm up for doing demonstrations.


      Here are my parts coming together for the build of the Tesla Turbine Mk2


      Bearings rated at 156,000rpm - 22mm OD, 8mm ID, 7mm wide (Skateboard size)

      Air Tap & Male to Male 1/2" BSPP Fittings

      Casing Nuts & Bolts M10 x 150mm Stainless Steel A2 + Nyloc Nuts & Washers:

      Fitting for Gauge - Wade Hex 123 (Needs Machining a little)

      Rotor (Not complete yet)

      Here is the first attempt at printing the one of the sides of the casing on a £200,000 polyjet 3D printer.

      It went a bit wrong according to the 3D printing company!

      They left the file on print over the weekend for 20 hours and something happened to the print. So I get this part for free even though it may be salvageable.

      They are going to have a second go after servicing the printer tomorrow.

      Here are some pics. I think the part can still work.
