Tiny turbos?

Hey I was wondering if anyone had any idea if there are tiny turbos out there, One's that could be used in a jet engine.

You see my [https://www.instructables.com/id/The-accidental-pocket-jet-engine.../ jet engine] doesn't generate thrust in any real quantity but I had a great idea for a design that would be tiny and possibly capable of being used in some more interesting projects, only I need a turbo of some sort...

It's a pulse jet though, if it's the one I'm thinking of, I have a plan for a turbo jet, basically it needs to be small though, preferably two of them. As J-tobako sent me to a site where I found RC jet planes I dug around for homemades and found a few one of which develops 110lbs of thrust and was made with a drill and lathe...
Wow well could you give me a link

Sure I'll try and find it again, I did a few hours of searching through the web so specifics are eluding me right now... I actually just had another mental breakthrough that might make the whole thing much easier and better aswell, a bit of new tech for instructables if it works... *runs to lair and plans insane ideas*
Well don't waste your time looking for a link, I just thought that you might have had it Favorited(?) or bookmarked. Just keep brainstorming.

If I found a really small centrifgual compressor I could work with parts from them...
What exactly is a centrifgual compressor?
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe9 years ago
It's a turbine based compressor rather than a piston based design. I wonder if a roots type blower could work here...
