Tesla Turbine V2
by Jamo, published
This is v2 of my Tesla turbine, major improvements/changes are the use of HDD platters as disks and the addition of ball bearings. Hopefully the Improvements make it viable. I have access to a printer now, so I'll test it soon.
- Print it.
- Thread the box for whatever you plan to use to pressurize the turbine.
- Put half of the disks and spacers on each half of the shaft.
- Attach the two halves of the shaft together.
- Put the 8 ball bearings on one of the caps and put the shaft on.
- Thread the bolts through the holes on each corner and attach the box.
- Put the rest of the ball bearings on the shaft.
- Put the other cap on and thread the nuts on to finish the turbine.
