DIY jet engine built from Edel-Föhn | hot online

Joel Gomes (aka Integza) likes to experiment with homemade jet engines. For his latest YouTube video, he bought a Dyson Supersonic hair dryer (just under 400 euros). It shows how he misappropriated it step by step.

[Link auf]Since the Föhn has a powerful motor, but was not originally developed for use with fire, Gomes quickly designed a new head part for the housing and integrated a combustion chamber into his design. He then has the design manufactured by a service provider friend of his using the DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) process, in which a laser combines metal in powder form layer by layer.

In order to feed the fuel into the combustion chamber, he also welds together a suitable part made of metal pipes and lo and behold: his engine works, at least optically and in terms of heat. Gomes can no longer find out whether the engine would be airworthy, because in a thoughtless attempt to measure it, he accidentally chars his anemometer as well as a tomato. After all, 3D printing keeps its promise and smolders happily without falling apart.
