  • @Tom Stanton This is JUST the type of problem-solving that I absolutely LOVE to do. I was wondering if you might have any recommendations (mostly tools/hardware/software) for someone trying to do similar things; ie. designing and developing my own creations/inventions. Personally, I have an Ender-3 printer that I upgraded a bunch (boro-silicate plate, vertical axis stabilizers, PTFE tubing, upgraded metal feeding parts). I have 0.2mm and 0.4mm nozzles and I use both PLA and ABS. For my 3D-modeling, I use Sketchup Pro (Originally Google Sketchup), mainly because I've used it so much that it's second nature to me. I have used Solidworks too but I am not NEARLY as good with it. From there I just use Ultimaker Cura, as I was recommended to by a friend. For finishing, I have plenty of hand tools and power tools with all types of driver bits and drill sizes. For a lubricant, the only thing I have is Remington Gun Oil; I have this for cleaning and fixing pocket knives, but I assume it's no good for plastic-on-plastic friction, and may even be slightly corrosive. It would really help if you could share what lubricants, adhesives, sealants, or screws you use for your projects. And the size of the holes you make for the screws. Please let me know if you have any tips or recommendations! Thank you so much!!

  • Bravo! Just one idea: take Latex instead of butyl rubber, then another 300% power increase is possible (maybe). And then make the engine heat resistant, that would give a pretty interesting steam engine (have you seen this fantastic engine?: dehave.info/down/lZiaha6yrn-4sqg/video). A lot of similarities to your engine!

  • Olá, estive vendo seu projeto e gostei, porém penso que pode melhorar com um circuito simples de geração de ar comprimido: "nas pontas da hélice poderá ser fixadas pequenas mangueiras (afastadas um pouco) para coletar ar, aproveitando o movimento de rotação das mesmas, este ar entrará para dentro de uma válvula de pressão sensível, onde por pressão hidráulica poderá gerar mais ar comprimido, fácil de fazer, vale a pena tentar...ok?

  • What is the power density of the engine? How many kilowatts of power are produced per kilogram of mass of the engine at a specified input pressure of air? What is the specific output of the engine in joules per mass of compressed input air used or in kilowatts per mass flow rate of air (kilograms per second of air flow) Compare your test figures to a steam locomotive. Remove the boiler and replace with a humongous tank of compressed air. You have designed a Rankine cycle engine which relies upon energy consumed outside the engine to compress air to drive the piston.

  • You have a diaphragm air compressor. It's smart because it doesn't use OIL. However, the pressure is low. ineffective. Life is short. It would be nice if we could create an engine / motor with technology that overcomes these problems. All that remains is a way to store air.

  • Great vids Tom...Check out the beautiful little CO2 powered motors made by the Czech genius engineer Stephan (?) Gasparin. They use a similar ball check valve but are a much simpler design. He made many different sizes and configurations from single cylinder, horizontally opposed twins , 4 cylinder, straight 4 and 6 cylinder, as well as 3, 5, 7, 9 cylinder radial motors. He even made 18 cylinder radials to order as well as V8 and V12 engines. Sadly he is not alive any more and these engines arerare collectors pieces. I have 3 engines and one of them is the second smallest he made....It has a bore of 1.5 mm and a stroke of 2 mm !!! It turns a beautiful little 2 inch , hand carved wooden prop at 5700 rpm and powers my 8 inch span Santos Dumont "Demoiselle" which weighs just 13 grams...Flies beautifully at a fast walking pace for well over 2 min. Keep these wonderful projects a comming...well done.

  • is it possible to fill the bottle with a second motor? what happens if your engine has two pistons? what if there were two bottles function like lungs? What happens if instead of air you use another gas (I know your engine works with pressure but do all gases have the same pressure) What happens if instead of air you use a liquid like oil or water, with two bottles having the same pressure both connected to the engine, one empties to fill the other but as both are full, the liquid will do the opposite (possibly) i love your engin, i think its a really good idea. continue like this !!!
