Sometime ago I watched a you tube video of a guy building a jet engine out of a turbocharger using only an electric drill motor and some basic hand tools. Last summer one of my neighbors gave me a turbo charger, and now that the snow is sitting on the ground a foot and a half deep I have time to build my own verison. Of course, since I have a lot of really cool tools how can I handicap myself? By only using the materials I have on hand. 1 used turbo, a 1 5/8 mandrel bent 180, a random length of driveshaft tubing and some 3/8 steel plate. I thought the best place to start was the plate to mount the burner can and some flanges to close the end. I bolted the flanges together and used a hole saw to rough it out, here's the completed burner can. The guy in the video mentioned a relationship between the intake area and the fuel nozzle holes but i missed it and now can't fine the video.
