    you said 5 blades, can you specify how many has the smaller blades and how many has the thicker blades???, Does it require the motor 100% of the time or is it only needed for the initial compression???

    Thank you

    The pics are pretty self-explanitory, but can you give instructions?..

    Maybe a video...

    PS. I think your adding the fuel a bit early. Just a tip.

    oh my god you are driving me crazy but its ok i have told you that i have lost a piece or two while being shipped here ok???
    and i used superglue and lead as i mentioned to hold the blades but i never said i used it at the hottest part!!! it is near the end blades and the motor and also when i tested the blades backwards it gave me more thrust. ok???? maybe i could have curved the blade weird or something
    so stop making bad comments..
    i am not joking it does work
    and i want to post a #$^$^%@$^%$^#^#@%@ video!!!!
    i really want to okay???

    I have to see video of it running before I vote, I have worked on jet cat turbines, the tolerances and components required for a turbine to function not to mention temperatures and materials are complex and expensive..a few problems I see...Your intake is non existent, there is no ignition source, no chamber separation , I guess it all boils down to how you define what a functional jet engine is.... Not trying to be mean, just, need more proof. My friend B Wilcox managed to build a 2.5" kerosene turbine and the support equipment to run it alone took up 4 times the space the turbine in its test stand.
    Again not trying to be mean just want to see it working, that's all...

    yes well bellboy I see that you know a lot about jet turbines yes and i also do as you mentioned there are no intake? well there is if you can see the picture closer there are square bits which is rotatable to change the airflow and also removable and the ignition source is taken apart i used a electric lighter igniter which is used for lighters and also some of the parts are missing because i shipped it and it got damaged on the way. and yes we need a combustion chamber and few more turbine blades. and also i used very little space as you mentioned that yours took up 4times more space. but i found all the small parts i needed actually which i handmade my self. and they are very cheap it can withstand the temperature and the force.
    P.S i would like to see your friends jet too thanks

    Still with all the tabs open your intake orifice to exhaust is off, the exhaust end uses the Venturi principal to concentrate the output of the jet making the hole smaller than the intake, small jet engines use ceramic bearings due to the high temperatures, how hot and how long can you run it? Please post more pictures and definitely a video of it running...

    yes, again hellboy you are telling that my exhaust hole is too wide? you cannot see the whole thing form picture there is a big groove that centers all the thrust made by the jet and i also lost a part while moving to a different house. it is a little cap with four thin wire strips that can be placed on the exhaust hole to make the exhaust smaller which makes it give more thrust. I can run his mini jet for about 30 min non stop after that only the blades and the exhaust is hot because of the gas that ignited inside. well hope that helped you.
    P.S I want to see yours

    Sorry made no sense, just post a video of it running to shut me up....and just to clarify your combustion is taking place within the jet and running for 1/2 an hour means its super efficient, must see video..... where does your igniter go?
    And what temperatures are you talking about?
    There are two that I worked with and they belong, as I said my friend Bob Wilcox, look him up, he's a jet guru and a good teacher.
