    Richard Trevithick's Dredger

    Hi HMEMs, I've just finished the replica of Richard's Trevithick's Dredger Steam Engine. It took me almost a year to build the model (I wish I had more time for my passion ;)). Comparing to original I've made slight modifications (mainly due to the model scale): - instead of solid fuel I've...

    Trevithick's Dredger boiler

    Neil: thanks a lot - I haven't noticed Tony's thread. Basing on the infos from Tony's thread I have changed the size of holes to 1.2 mm - it has started to behave a little bit better. Finally I've replaced nozzle from 0.6mm to 0.15 mm. Now it works perfectly! The gas velocity out of the nozzle...

    Trevithick's Dredger boiler

    I've tried torch type flame, but when I put the outlet of burner to the tube the flame goes out. It behaves in the same way like my burner. Cheers Irek

    Trevithick's Dredger boiler

    Hi, I have just finished Trevithick's Dredger model engine. It perfectly runs on compressed air, only paintings is to do. The last thing I have started to do is gas burner. I 've decided to use propane-butane gas delivered in small containers. I have constructed burner in a form of brass tube...

    Jan Ridder's thermo-pulse engine

    No, it was rather easy. Two afternoons: changing the volumes (position of restrictor) and machining new piston (first one was too loose) made the engine running. Regards!

    Jan Ridder's thermo-pulse engine

    The engine is inspired by Jan Ridder's thermo-pulse engine. It is called Daga VI :-) https://youtu.be/GbD8kV2PWNA

    Daga V ready!

    Daga V is finally ready! Four stroke, two cylinders IC engine. Openings in cylinders which allows observations of piston movements. Almost two years of build - in fact with two long breaks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dk19mk16X8I&feature=youtu.be

    Daga IV - 4 stroke IC engine

    Thanks all for the kind words! The diagram of the ignition system is shown in the Jan Ridders page. It bases on the electronic gas lighter. I have noticed, that it works better with the 2V supply, so I have used two AA rechargeable batteries (1.2V each) with 1.2 Ohm/2W resistor...

    Daga IV - 4 stroke IC engine

    Hi, I have just finished my fourth project: 4 stroke internal combustion engine based on Jan Ridders plans. I have finished the engine in the beginning of this year, but since I've made a lot of mistakes, I had many problems with starting the machine. Finally, it is finished and works fine...

    Daga III - steam engine

    Actually not too much. It feeds two LEDs, one small and the second bright one, so it is approximately about 0.2W. But I think it is possible to connect a small bulb. I'll try. Regards Irek
