Pulse Jet


#21

I’ve bought a set of metal rollers so it should be easier to form the cones this time.


#22

Oooh that sounds good


#23

I now have some thinner stainless sheets to make the rest of the cones. I also have a rather heavy parcel which I think are the metal rollers.

We need to arrange another day at the shed…


#24

Writing a submission for EMF, what do we want in the description?

  • Lockwood pulse jet
  • Fire it up a few times per day as demos
  • Will provide hearing protection for spectators

What else?
I guess done detail on who we are as a hackspace and the materials?


#25

All sounds good, funnily enough I got an email from emf the other day asking us to submit a call for participation (which I assume is what you are filling out https://www.emfcamp.org/cfp )

Maybe stress that its experimental and we have no idea if it will work :wink:


#26

Our submission has been successful! They’ll be in contact soon to confirm our entry in the programme etc.

For now:
“This sounds great! Are you imagining moving it somewhere far away from the site for demonstrations, or are you looking to keep it in-place?”


#27

Of course this ups the pressure on us to actually build the thing.
Now we have a more space I suggest that we meet at the space once a week, we can do most things there bar the welding.
Now we just need to fix the day.
I vote for wednesday.


#28

Sounds good. Start from this Wednesday?


#29

Yep. I’ll bring the parts and the sheet stainless.
Plan to be there about 7 - 7.30


#30

I have a leaf blower now. Might need some tlc or I might not be using it properly but it starts and runs at least


#31

I’m not around this Wednesday so feel free to carry on with it without me this week


#32

I’ve just ordered some 15mm stainless steel pipe for the fuel rail.
i’m planning on doing more welding at my workshop on Thursday.
