Another Thermo Jam

Post by jamjarjim » Tue Aug 12, 2014 11:15 am

Hi Folks,

I am trying to post a video of my Thermo-Jam. Will the forum allow attachments in .mp4 format????

Has anyone else made one of these fantastic little engines?

All credit to Ghrey for sharing his work with us, Thanks man 8)

Regards, Jim

There is a limit for the amount of data, but I don't know how much. Post it on Youtube and put the link in your post.

Your scepticism is fuel for my brain.

This is my glass Thermo-jam. Daytime vid so you can see the setup. It was also one of the longest runs ive had yet.

For comparison this vid is the same jar type, but run as a normal jamjar with just a single 11mm hole in the lid. The jar broke about half a second after the video finishes.

I hope if you don't mind about my thermojam, I just built it. I am surprised how energic this is! I've never had a jam jar glow red, and this glows red even without any cooling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fK6d3cl6aT4
