Re: first pulse jet

Iam in the same boat as you, what to do next :) My first pj was just lashed together and ran quite well as a heater. If you want some really awesome plans for a large 40 pound pj look up Metiz's m40. There is a comprehensive .pdf on one of the last couple pages of the thread, it has all templates re...

Re: new member introduction, also can i get opinion on ignition

Thats running nicely, The ball valves are great for emergency shut-offs. Maybe if the handle was very long, 12 to 18 inches it would have better control. I find multiple needle valves in parallel give reasonable results. They can be the less expensive type, just need to make sure they have the fine...

Re: Odd Metal jars

Far from everything has been tried, I say give it a go. My speculation is the water has a high enough density it would interfere with the pumping effect of the tail. Instead of the pressure from the CC driving the tail pump, it will dump the pressure out the intake. The first cycle would be good, b...
