Nice work. Looks like there's room inside for a small CO2 fire extinguisher to simulate an exhaust plume.

Yes inside there would be enough space...

Patrick, would you mind if I put your Steam Punk Jet Pack on my Disqus channel?

My channel is about Steam Punk and some other eclectic stuff. But I would love to show a few pictures of your jet pack and the link to the instructions you provided. And by all means, please leave a comment or other pictures.

This isn’t spam. I’m just a fan of Steam Punk gizmos.



Hello, no problem you can share my project and maybe there are some people who also vote for my project in he helloween contest, that would be great

Thank you! Posted it this morning.

Fantastic!! BUT!! You've got to make the "rudder helmet" or you will go out of control at takeoff!!

Yeah, I'm a steampunk geek too. :)

Awesome work!

thats why i added the stering / control engines on the left and right but anyway thx. its even my first steampunk attemp

I'd say you have a pretty good handle on it - particularly for your FIRST steampunk build!

Please don't take the following as any sort of criticism, it most assuredly is not. I'm so excited to see this project here. It's a perfect fit as a steampunk Instructable and the presentation is as good as I've seen in a couple years reading Instructables!

Not seeing it in person, I can't tell if you have any "busy" works that are somewhat common on steampunk designs. Blinking lights, gears and cranks turning, mechanical sound effects, things like that. Are they needed? Not at all, but they help "sell" the whole effect. It's like artificially ageing the finish, you don't see it's missing but if it's added the project achieves another level of wonder and fantasy.

Best Wishes, Larry

thanks and appreciate your comment, in fact i considered few things to add but then i thought i will let it without all those gimmicks just pure and raw ;) i did not know that i would get so much reaction on this instructable so i am very honored for all the positive feedback i get

But could this thing actually FLY???

thats a goud question..but even if it was working i dont know if i would go for that hell of a ride :)

That is absolutely beautiful!

thank you

Monty124 (author)2017-09-24

That is sooo cool. Did you consider adding a smoke generator to it and a small fan. Well played Sir.

i wanted to add 2 compressors of 12 v but i dropttat idea...i will notice that if i build an other project in that way...thx
