Very cool toys. You have quite the skill set and a rather unique perspective. It is nice to see different in a normal world.

So, tonight i was feeling generous at times, test run the turbines: Half ceramic vers. full ceramic bearings. Half ceramic wins!

I guess that it was the plastic cover of the full ceramic. Which are apparently heat sensitive. The turbine slowed down after 20 sec steam. So tentatively extended. Were naturally bonded with Loctite 648th

The result?

Remember: 60 EUR! (= 6 boxes Radeberger bear!) later:

Tomorrow i make the next test run. If it should not have been the ceramics, i melt the whole project!
