Work of art indeed, bet that took some doing.

Looks a little rough around the edges but guess the machining s just been done and its yet to be finished.

It's probably a quater, yes. No idea how big they are tbh. The guy who posted the picture ( works the machine that made it ) says they are 108mm dia though, so that's probably a better portrayl! ;)

Yep, machined from billet. Apparently it does it all with a 1/4" ball cutter! :eek:

I'm going to get the drill out and see if I can replicate one! lmao

I would say 'wow', but anyone could make one with an angle grinder! easy peasy
*tut*

I just made one with just a match stick (used) and a peice of cardboard ( dipped in gravy ) It's also got variable vane geometry so it spools quickly and has good power too! :p

You have to lower the tone by using a used match stick and cardboard dipped in gravy and having variable vane geometry.

god some people! :p

i just made one from a used drawing pin and a petrol soaked lit piece of paper and its got adjustable turbine nozzle and the radius from the centre of the turbine axel to the centroid of the housing throat. :p
