How does a
After watching the above video your experience about learning will become different to a large extent. Right? If you haven’t watched the video, watch first and then continue reading.
I have been thinking about explaining the physics behind
Never expect that this is a working kind of real engine. This is a model made of materials that are available around us, but it has almost all the essential components present in a real engine.
In this article, I am going to share my experience about making this
These fiberglass pieces are the frame on which other components are fixed. So I had to fix a bearing at the center of both fiberglass pieces. I didn’t have a hole cutter. Instead, I used a drill to make a bearing sized hole on the
Next step is making the crank. You know, crank is the most important and tricky part of an engine. Piston-crank mechanism is what converts the linear motion of the piston in to rotational motion. So I had to clearly deliver this idea and thought about it for a while. Which is the right material to make the crank? Plywood,
The only problem with multi-wood is “Dust”. It is harmful to your lungs. At the time of shooting the video, I was not bothered about it. After watching the video a friend of mine cautioned me about the dangers of breathing multi-wood dust. So I suggest my readers use a filter or cover your face before cutting the multi-wood with an angle grinder. Or, avoid angle grinder to cut if possible. In this case, shaping the multi-wood piece in the crank, the shape is very difficult with hack-saw.
I used multi-wood to make both the crank and connecting rod or piston rod. Now is the time to make hoes at the center of the shapes. I didn’t have a 5 mm bit drill so I went to
Pen lovers may hate me. I used three identical type of pen for the crank shaft. Drilling and screwing is really interesting, I love it. Do you? You may be thinking is this guy mad.. No. I love to do crazy things.
Our project is almost completed. Crank and piston are the most important components of an engine. So, I can say that our project is 50 percent completed. As I already mentioned, piston, piston rod, crank
Crankcase and cylinder are another integral part of the engine. They are stationary parts within which piston and crank moves. I used transparent plastic bottles to create
Connecting all the components together is very easy if we have a clear idea about the output. You can see that each and every moving component inside a
Thank you very much for watching the video and reading my experience. I will soon explain the physic behind
