Steam condenser / stack... second versionGot several videos of my new smoke stack / grease trap. This is the one I'll be using on all of my engines from now on (at least all of the ones with exhaust lines).
This one uses an 8" brass pipe.. I believe it was called a Tailpiece in the store. Not going into a big descrip here because that was covered over in the other section that such things belong in.
This first viddy of the Mk-II version is actually the last one shot. It's short, everything is hot, and it's smoking nicely. If you're sick of my movies, then at least consider watching this one before you click off elsewhere
This next one is the first video, and it's the acid test: the cold start.
Everything's cold, the engine is priming a bit and the lines are full of water. No splashes!
Warm start, again with water in the lines
Last 3 I did tonight are mainly mucking with the PM Research generator. It'll drive a small DC motor at very low RPMs, and I love the sound the D22 makes loaded up at low RPMs. Skip em if you just wanted to see the smoke stack.
Great work Mr 0
That was real interesting to see.
I'm going back to your thread about making this. I saw bits and pieces of it, but never got to read it right through.
Thanks for sharing mate
I was surprised at how well it went off, considering my usual grace in handling a torch.
Got an extra tube, so the next step might be to make one with 2 inlets, for running either 2 engines at the same time, or a Jensen 55 (don't have one, but want one) that has 2 exhaust ports.
Now *that* would put out a cloud of steam!
