      The trick is for water to implode behind the turbine after exploding in front of it.

      Much like a rubber band contracts after being stretched.

      For example:

      Well here you have it!

      If I add the valve to the unbalanced machine in the video it will give it life!

      I'm still in the process of designing tools to dynamically balance the rotor / axle myself accurately.

      Here are the Tesla Valve Mk2 files along with everything else needed for a working prototype.

      At some point I plan to try and improve the design using CFD software.

      One thing that has never been done by anyone with the valve is apply pressure to both sides at the same time. This is how the valve is supposed to be used, yet not one youtuber who has built one or modelled one seems to have read and understood the patent and therefore the valves purpose. This, like the turbine, has led to the the blind leading the blind!

      I have done STL files that can be 3D printed.

      I have done STEP files that can be CNC milled.

      I have also included the original Solidworks 2018 files.

      The news from the rapid prototyping company is that the two bases have been printed and they are now doing the lids.

      The holes each end need to be tapped using a 1/2" BSPP. The holes are already the correct size 19mm ready to be tapped.

      The will allow you to use off the shelf air line fittings or adapters.

      Please download these files while they are still available and share far and wide.

      This material is completely open source.


      Specs:


      Base part: W: 150mm D: 64mm H: 30mm

      Lid part: W150mm D 64mm H: 10mm


      8 x threaded M4 inserts (added to CAD):

      The rapid prototyping company just sent me a photo of the bases. I thought they were supposed to be white ABS. Maybe it's the lighting.

      The lids are going to be printed today in VeroClear which is the same material as the casing I currently have. It's similar to acrylic but not as transparent.

      I can't wait to see where you go next when this fails to do anything useful...

      I can't wait to see your response when it does something you think is impossible!

      Are you in UK?

      That would be nice. It would make me happy to see this. But I have absolutely no reason to think this will happen.

      You seem to have decided that nothing after 1943 has anything to teach you and are instead making stuff up as you go along, like this 'implosion' nonsense.

      We've seen a Tesla turbine spin when supplied with pressurized air. That's what would be expected to happen. We've yet to see it do anything but convert a few dollars of pressure energy to a few cents of rotational energy. That's not a terribly difficult exchange to make happen...

      No, I am not in the UK. I am in Oregon, in the USA.

      Tesla wrote in the US Patent 1,061,206 Turbine that the machine would make explosions. I've never seen this happen yet but I know it is possible with enough surface area.

      Is an explosion in partial vacuum an implosion?

      This is the best video I've seen that I would consider to be an implosion:




      Here is my latest video:

      Hey, I thought your big box was all ready to go, once you hooked up that one-way valve you already printed. And that it's RPM would actually go up once you turned off the air pressure.

      That would be interesting. This? Not so much.
