Ran the Large Hot Pulse Jet in the workshop for some visitors today.
I'm the one with the cap. Frank had a red arm afterwards.
It runs irregular, probebly because of vapor lock in the fuel hose.
Maybe someone can check the frequency?

This is where its full potential starts showing, starting to move on its stand a little and flaring out

The nozzle is a modified oilburner nozzle. Very commen in central heating systems.
I cut a slot in the top of the nozzle (across) with a small saw. The nozzle is steel. Then after inserting a feeler gage in the slot, tapped the cut evenly with a hammer. Blowing smoke through it showed the uneven gap that was then corrected with the above method. The nozzle screws down under a slight angle in the CC, spraying across and slightly into the intake. fuel is regulated by opening a still very crude ballvalve, allowing the liquid propane into the preheater on to the nozzle.

Awesome! How did you do the CC? I can see that It's made from two halfs, but how did you make those? Once again awesome! like the growling sound :D
If it doesn't fit, use a bigger hammer!

The CC is an old stainless DDR made compressor tank.
