Interesting scientific articles for those who like to punish their brains.

It's unlikely, but it could be that someone designs the optimal putt-putt engine which would mean that further experimentation is futile. The only way to overcome that problem is, in my opinion, to evolve the engine by any means to keep increasing the output.
And, as an added benefit: if putt-putt engines become more powerful, more people will find them interesting.


Yes. That is a good way to put it.

I had already posted a video about speed that gives people one target. https://youtu.be/JOE3qIslu24
The other target is about force and I just posted a short video about that from video I took some time ago. https://youtu.be/ia7nDx7auc8

It is a surprise to me that so few people  have seriously tried to build "The Better Engine". Perhaps it is just not glamorous enough in this world of more, bigger,& better.

I have watched all your videos.

Slater's engine is still popular. Simple projects keep the interest of children and adults alike. Therefor I haven't yet and probably will never do a tutorial on hard soldering thin brass diaphragms, although it's simple, hard soldering is uncharted territory for most Youtube viewers. In fact soft soldering is a "skill" not many viewers master.

I have a few questions that you might know the answers too.

One of daryl Canada's boats seems to have al the tubes joined together by a copper covering. Was this to balance out the differences between a multiple motors? I like the idea of binding multiple motors with copper at the end, middle and near the boiler to even out differences in temperature and performance between them.

Is it possible to build a lower hertz motor with fewer more powerful power strokes?

Oh and while I'm writing I must add that Darryl Canada's boats are really special! I wish I had the skills to create such art.

I don't think I built anything that works as you describe so I'm guessing you are looking at boiler type engines. Add a photo if you like for clarification.

Larger boiler and/or larger longer pipes will give lower hertz. However fastest boat was high hertz.

Thank you.  Daryl

Sorry about the video quality - the boat needs a proper burner to get the most out of it

Can anyone suggest a suitable section of the Forum where I can make postings of pop-pop driven toys other than boats, now that such category of toy exists   So far my postings in this regard have been confined to  'Collections and Pics '  and  appear to have gone largely unnoticed by the core of pop-pop  experts and enthusiasts.  .
