My latest project is................ a Thrust Jet engine! I built and machined the entire thing.

Just wanted to do something a lil crazy and this fit the bill. All that's left to do is plumb the fuel system and it should light off! I'll definetly post a video but I also need to find a way to rig up a test stand of some kind.

Ultimately I plan to mount it on my Daughters go cart and/or a custom mini chopper motorcylcle I'm also building.

Cool, how much thrust are you expecting ?
The plans said it should produce 35-40 lbs of thrust. I'm hoping it throws out about a 3 ft flame and lotsa smoke. Runs on K2 Kerosene. The go cart and minichopper will both have gasoline motors and the jet will be "auxiliary" power :lol:.







Should also be insanely loud so I know the nieghbors will love it. :willy:

Looks good!
I've seen turbos fired with kero make a lot of thrust.
