This is part 1 out of three of the MK2 micro Tesla building series. After watching this ruvid.net/video/video-Swi3qO-1e1M.html I decided to give it a shot and see if I can improve the performance of the previous micro Tesla turbine. Big thanks to Tesla Tech ruvid.net/show-UCNEPe3-_0XinRSXnl1ppqDg, as without his valuable input, I wouldn't have thought this design, which seems efficient and capable of achieving high output numbers considering its size.
Some interesting data:
Rotor diameter: 20mm 25mm
Number of discs: 12 18
Clearance between the discs: 0.18mm 0.12mm

Or you could have used ready made stainless steel washers.

At time 3:30, a hex had bolt is used to fasten discs to the lathe and later a socket had bolt is removed to remove discs.

I have a question: you use superglue to hold them in place on the mandrel, but when you are done they seem to just pop right off. How does this work? If the glue is actually holding them, shouldn't they be harder to remove?

Nice job, but not exactly what Tesla intended. Look up patent 1061206. The tubes you use obstruct the free flow over the disks.
Robert Bush

Any reason why you didn't just purchase the correct size flat washers ? Cutting all of this by hand isn't very accurate and those disk need to be very accurate and balanced to work properly !!

awesome build and I doubt you'll read this as it's almost 3 years old, but why didn't you use a hole saw to cut out the disks? It would have saved you so much time.

JohnnyQ, Nikola Tesla 2, lol.... No, That was cool. I had no idea machining could be so fast, clean and painless. I know it's sped up, but still, it looks like you're working clay. I guess I'm in a mood cz I came up with about 10 one liners while watching, lol. I didn't know which one to use so ima do a few haha..... * Dude, my old man is a television repair guy, he has got like, the ultimate set of tools, I can fix it. * Ok MacGuyver slow down. We have at least an hour before the kidnappers come back. * Considering the star of show and title, that itty bitty gem I opened with morphed a bit.... JohnnyQ NT2 * Mr. Laforge, are the dilithium chamber repairs complete? * Please, PLEASE, don't let him be a psycho making weapons, please god, please 👏🏽 Thank you, thank you✋ 🙏🏽 Thank you, very much....Ohhh, how lovely, no please, please, sit down, sit down, your all too kind, thank you. harhar ........ Peace ✌ I also wondered if ol' Niko used pepsi cans, you think?..... I think he just might have. And dude, for the spacers you do all that work drill all those holes, cut all the tiny squares, trim all the tiny pieces to circles. That's how I'd do it!..... I'm getting tired just writing it, lol. Since you're using .05 cans why not cut slightly bigger squares, stack em up in your gorgeous press, drill one hole, then throw the oversize squares on the lathe.. It would be like .42 milliseconds longer to become circles like your rough cuts do. Just offering an observation, may be useless, but if it helps great. peace man

looks good, but it seems you waste a lot of time and effort by cutting the the sheet metal when you could just start with some premade fender washers.

there were also teardrop indentions on the faces of the rotor. I'm thought about the building process and wonders if they could be etched in using a process similar to the ferric chloride circuit board etching process vs. machining.
Yourname Here

Matthew Parson---I mean use something like washers but then chemically engrave the teardrop indentations into the washer face for the extra "traction" that was in the Tesla rotary. I'm having a hard time finding the illustration on Google but I have a poster with the patent blow up and a part of the majic was the tear drop pattern of indentations on the rotor faces that made the motor so efficient. I have no idea how he would have machined such a thing and kept it balanced during that period of time when he was alive but the schematic that I have showed that the teardrop indentations were a part of the majic that caused turbulence of the gas or liquid between the rotors and made it so efficient. Chemically etching them like a circuit board was my thought.

No one noticed that using grinding/polishing bits in a rotary tool to "enlarge" the center holes would result in a smaller hole every time due to the tool wearing away gradually...?
