Sos,
That takes the cake as the most dangerous piece of HB equipment I have ever seen. Asbestos underpants would be the go when operating that monster.
I hope you have a long hose to your gas cylinder. Wouldn't want that going up too.
Take care
cheers Darren

I was thinking the same thing - I've got 2 sitting in a box in the garage. I still don't fully appreciate how it works, especially how one would mount it.

The tubo acts as a turbine. Basically the jet comes out the compresors inlet.

Well the flame is a lot bluer and doesn't shoot so far.

i saw some of these home made gas turbine engines on the net a few weeks ago. one of them the was being used to keep the owners beer cool :eek: by placing his gas bottle in a bucket of water with his beer bottles, it uses a lot of LPG and quickly too, making the gas bottle quite cool. :D

Well if you have 2 turbos lying around you could go one step better - A rocket engine (beats the crap out of a turbofan in terms of grunt). Set up both turbos to spin with compressed air. Use one to compress lpg, the other to compress either air or O2. Inject both compressed gas streams into a combustion chamber and spark it up. Your very own turbopumped rocket engine. On a real system the combustion chamber wall is gas cooled and the coolant is recirculated to drive the turbopumps...

Cheers
