- Jun 11, 2008Well thank you,
Allow me te introduce myself. I'm Paul, 33 years old and I come from
the Netherlands. One of my (too)many hobbies is to improve things by
trail and error, in our case the putput or 'pufpaf' engines as I like
to call them.
My first experiment was a simple aluminium coil type engine but after
blewing a gap in the pipe I discarded this attempt. My second engine
is still in a experimental fase as it continous to run quite voilent.
It's a brass box design(80mm*25mm*10mm) with an ultra thin membrane
and 2 nozzeled rear pipes. It runs on a tealight, mostly noisy with
reasonable performance but sometimes it overheats and stalls.. which
is bad as I didn't designed it that way! A pro of the design is that
it is nearly impossible to run it dry as the pipes are fitted about
2mm in the angled boiler so there will always be a certain amount of
water in it.
My new design will be quite unusual. Instead of 2 rear pipes it has 1
inline pipe with an in only valve at the front and an out only valve
at the rear. (valves are madee from bicycle tires) The membraned
boiler is connected with an angled pipe to the valved pipe. The most
unusual in the design however will be the membrane. It delivers an
unused source of mechanical energy and I'm about to chance that.
I hope to post some pics soon, for know.. stay happy and keep
experimenting with those strange tiny steamers.
Don't hesitate to ask questions.
