I have been accused of all of the same things. I had a guy at a model show feeling around the display base trying to find the speaker. Now my pal louis does it to me every show. Its ok though because I do it to him too. Its kind of the inside joke With the engine guys in my metal club.

Just disable comments on youtube. WE KNOW BETTER!

You do not need to justify yourself, your craftsmanship speaks for itself, any fool who mutters adverse comments are not worth recognition.
Keep up the good work

I second that! The world is full of lazy critics that don't know anything. Keep up the excellent work.

Keith-

Don't fret over the YouTube nay-sayers.   We, your peers, as stated above, know what you have accomplished.  Your work is in the upper echelon of the hobby.  You have have nothing to prove.  The critics would more than likely find constructing a paper airplane a difficult task.

I often find it interesting listening to people talking about my Stirling Engines, sometimes saying "he should have done this, or that", I then come foreward, and introduce myself, and ask them how many engines they have built(usually none, nor any other engineering work), I then ask if they know how the engine works, and get quite a few different answers.  They then get the correct story.  There are quite a few that know a good bit more than I do in the Canterbury area of NZ, some have studied these engines at Canterbury University, others worked on the Whisper Gen.

I wouldn't worry about people on youtube, your work speaks for it's self. They have nothing better to do.
Keep up the awesome work, I can't wait to see the V10 run!

I have been following this from the beginning, Wow! you are a real craftsman. Don't pay any mind to those idiots. Here's a good one. I once had a guy a
Steam and Power show I was showing my model engine's at, claim my engine's weren't running on there own. So I asked him to grab a hold of the spark plug on one of my running hit miss models if he didn't think it was running on it's own. He wouldn't do it but still claimed I had a electric motor
hooked up somewhere. I finally had enough of him and just asked him politely to go away.
Anyway great work.

Are there such things as commercial turbochargers for model engines?  8)

My main concern about building a turbo would be that the compressor or turbine would self destruct.

Thanks for posting that Jayykt!    Appreciate it!

Feel free to start another thread on the subject! While your at it, a short post in the introduction section would be keeping with the forum rules

Welcome to MEM!   ;D

Brendonm-Apparently this guy fabricated his turbo from aluminum iirc but I would use titanium for something that would be subjected to such high stress levels

Steamer-No problem just wanted to share that because a lot of people doubt the possibility of a small scale turbocharger so I thought I'd give them something to think about and thank you for the welcome
