Have you ever compared the basic design outlines in the Kamps book with other sources?Yes, I
compared it with the Gas Turbine Theory I mentioned earlier. The Kamps book will allow you to
scale his des...

One of the things about your build that I was really excited to see was the turbine wheel you
made. It was really nice to see a built wheel rather than the cast inconel wheels that most
folks use. Ive...

You might consider making a "dump" diffuser rather than the MK1 type, some of the guys in the
GTBA used this type with good results. The diffuser in the GR is a dump style. The wedges are
extended to ...
