Step 1: Materials

one large coffee can
one small coffee can
a 8"x8" piece of 1/4" plywood
bare steel wire
24" plastic tube 1/4"
small propane bottle
blow torch fittings
air pump for air mattress
1/2" wood drill
small paint can lid
gallon paint can lid
battery or other power supply

Step 2:

construct everything like the picture. red is the wires.
It is just a first attempt. It had almost no thrust. But i made it longer and added a more powerful fan. I will add more pictures, and show more videos. In this form it is just a large blow torch.&nbsp; <br />
I wonder if he should look at this?<br /> <br /> http://www.aardvark.co.nz/pjet/<br /> <br /> <br /> Might help.<br /> <br /> <br />
Sigh, to be a jet engine you need to be producing thrust - From what I could see this is not so.<br /> <br /> When you have air + Propane + combustion chamber is a goo blow lamp at present. Nice hot flame but not much jet engine<br />
I just watched the video (hold the camera the right way up next time!), and I don't see any &quot;jet&quot; at all.<br /> <br /> You need to show us photographs (not video-grabs) of the actual build - as far as I can see, this is currently just a fairly large Bunsen burner.<br />
How much thrust are you developing?&nbsp; Or, unless the color correction is WAY off in the first picture, are you just burning stuff in a can?<br />
