The little steam turbine that CAN

The little steam turbine that CAN... (0 min 52 sec)

it's poor man's boiler and heater.
because all made from beer/soda cans.
the wheel using hard drive plate with fins made also using can.
i'll post the build log later.
i never see people made steam like these over the internet so i do experiment trial and error.
the result after a dozen cans is more than what i expect.

That's pretty amazing! Especially because the wheel did not come apart!

Howdy! Love the low tech approach and want to know more. Got any photos to share? I'm also building a turbine but I've gone a little more high tech in my approach, even though I really don't know what I'm doing! Photos here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/steamb...7643364703844/

Yeah, actually at the moment I no longer have access to a cnc mill but I've found a nice small one that'll suit my needs and I'm saving up to buy one. Sold by littlemachineshop.com and looks like a winner.
