Finishing this week
The entire project will be finished by the end of March.
originally the project was to include an presentation. However, this proved to be to much work. The contents to be handed in are the engine, a website, and a 500 word written response.
One major problem has been the epoxy. I should have used quick drying epoxy because the drying time of the normal epoxy has taken longer to dry, therefore preventing me from continuing.
The power diaphraghm, when glued to the pressure vessel, will probably interfere with the movement of the displacer within the pressure vessel. This will pose a problem becaus eof resistance.
when the fire box was screwed on to the base, the can broke. This was solved by using 2 different sized washers to secure the can to the wood.
