That is great Vern, nice to see one on a boat. A couple of years back I put a 50lb locky on my canoe. Unfortunately I had no way to video it it though. I achieved a terrifying speed of 22mph, according to my GPS. I think she would have gone faster, but 22mph is scary enough in a canoe.

Well, with my chinese engine I have put my bare hand maybe 12" from the tailpipe opening. Not instant burn, but gets uncomfortable pretty quick.

With my FWE I have done the same and it gets alot more uncomfortable alot quicker.

That's really interesting Leo, thanks. A few references even claim that the water being under pressure increases efficiency. Very neat, that is a HUGE savings when compared to using a high-pressure compressor.

I read a news article not too long ago about a blacksmith who (knowing better) tossed some galvanised steel in his forge to simply burn off the zinc. About two weeks later he died from complications from metal fume fever. Anyway, just a little reminder of how serious this can get. Oh yeah, you need ...

HAAHAA, It does look like a bong! The hippy stuff is too much!

Don't get pulled over with that thing, you'll have a tough time convincing the cop that it's a jet engine.


Seriously though, great job! I really like that engine.

Can't wait too see a video of you "fire it up"!

I've got a 32" chinese I'd sell for around $100. I have no issues with shipping to the UK. Let me know if you're interested I'll get a pic on here.

The engine runs great and is easy-starting. It's made from 22ga 304 stainless steel.

USA made tools are extremely overpriced here too, Ross! They are worth it in the long run though, if you are someone that actually uses them regulrly.

The ads are OK Mike. Anything that helps this site is OK in my book.

Rahul, I'm not being a jerk here, although it may sound like it. I am VERY concerned for your safety. Please do yourself (and any innocent bystanders) a favor and stop experimenting until you have done ALOT more reading. Please stay away from petrol for awhile, you are going to get burned with it.

If you can find a syringe with a plunger that has a diameter of 1.12" your gauge will show the actual thrust.

I just had to watch it a few more times. I really like the look of that one guys. It actually looks more like a propulsion device and less like an exhaust pipe than most designs. It appears to be really putting out some major thrust for it's size too! Anyway, I am very impressed I love the double in...

WOW! That is most definately the most beautiful PJ I've ever seen. Great video too, I watched it 3 or 4 times. I can't get over that engine, very nice lines, and great craftsmanship.

Great job Larry, and James!
