Thought it was time to get an experiment out of my head that I have been working on for a long time.
Everything has to be built around the performance of what ever the end result manifold design is, so I'm starting with that.
Selected fittings..

I am am suitably impressed!!!!

I would be more impressed if I knew what it is going to be and what it does.

Its it a fix to Prospectors copying and pasting links to their prefered view on climate change and masquerading to be experts in the field of weather anomalies?

If so startup a go fund me page and Ill be your first donation!!!

P.s I cringe but still go in to read it DOH!!!!!!

Nice work 20x, I ll be watching with interest.

I still think it's another modern version of an Oggle-goggle box. I suspect that the end caps would be removed prior to use, and the valves left in the open position?

Once launched I'm sure the effect would be exactly the same. Members on here have found metal parts of them before, pieces that are all that is left of the 19th century wooden versions.

This is the fan barrel out of an aircon, it's the most perfect easy go to shape with it's multi mini grizzly structure.
Problem would be that it would spin to fast to process anything, not using it in this experiment but maybe give ya's an idea..

Reverse healix tromell
I am tossing up between that and the spiral wheel
I will be using 5-10mm thick plastic strip or angle to do the internal spiral.
I want to see if I can manually with gears or belt crank a pump to pump water to the tromell, while it rotates the tromell
or attach a Spiral tube or bucket to the end wheel to lift water from the tub or creek below.
cool

Interesting but very different from what I'm trying to build.
I'm trying to harness and aim the energy from pressure and velocity with gears to create torque to do 2 separate functions.

Back on the perforated allow sheet hunt, having trouble, I need 550×400mm in 2mm holes and 550×400mm in 5-6mm holes..
Anyone know where? Can get it at this size on eBay but they want $60 and $60 for postage for each sheet from Melbourne?
