See Thru Jet Engine

Published 2022-06-18
I put together a small Jet Engine with a See Thru transparent housing to allow us to see inside of the jet engine while it's running, I explain the combustion process of the jet engine from the compressor to the turbine wheel and show visually how the see-thru Jet Engine Works.

I then film it in slow motion with the high-speed camera to get a better look at how the jet engine works but it wasn't such a big difference.

The amount of heat generated inside of the engine only a few millimeters from the outside cover was pretty impressive.

At the end I did inject fog into the intake of the jet engine to try and visualize the airflow into the engine and how the engine is ingesting air.

    Welcome to the 21st century, where geniuses casually put together jet turbines in their garage using the most amazing private tool array and broadcasting all of it for the world to see. What a time to be alive!

    My deepest respect for those four screws holding this little beast
  • You know you could work for 40yrs to have $1M in your retirement,meanwhile some people are putting just $10K in a meme coin from just few months ago and now they are multimillionaires.

    I'm a recently retired middle-school Science teacher. I've "known" how jet engines work for much as one can "know " something from looking at drawings and photos. To be able to see the inside while it is in operation was just incredible. Thanks for making and sharing this vid. I wish I'd have had it while I was still teaching.

    I love how one of the biggest technological advancements of the 20th century is now just a thing that people can build in their garage.
  • Matthew Roberts
    I can't imagine how much money this guys skills must be worth on the open market. I can't see there being many people out there with the skills to manufacture a jet engine from scratch. Really impressive.
  • Avi Tech
    I've worked on aircraft and turbine engines for 30 years, and never thought I would see what one looks like on the inside running. Even just a basic one like yours is pretty neat.
  • Colton Bird
    This is so beyond cool. I had a smile on my face the whole time. The skill involved in this is extremely impressive. How much thrust was this producing?
  • F Mills
    I'm an aerospace engineering student about to go into 3rd year and this video has put a huge smile on my face. I have a huge fascination in aerospace propulsion, specifically turbojets and rocket engines so yeah... awesome stuff!
  • Dennis Haffner
    We are definitely interested in seeing a Part II, and Part III, and a Part IV.

    This is a very interesting video.

    Thanks, Dennis & Team

    Thank you so much! I was having the hardest difficulties with my physics class, and I didn't understand gas turbines at all. Upon finding out that gas turbines are also jet engines, I watched this video. This gave me a full conceptual understanding of my class, especially at the beginning when you explained the four-stroke cycle in one cylinder. I highly appreciate it, thank you so much I was flunking out of my class but this got me an A!
  • TheRjjrjjr
    You've gotten so very good at what you do and I am completely impressed and grateful that you let me have a peek into your jet powered world! Do you actually make every element of a jet engine? Aer you an aeronautic engineer or just an extreme hobbyist? It appears that you have invested a great deal of time, money, and effort into the design and creation of jet engines! Thanks again for posting this, it is very educational!
  • Adrian
    I’ve been designing jet engines professionally for 32 years. Never seen inside one when it’s running. AWESOME!!
  • Live Your Dream
    As an aircraft mechanic this was very enjoyable to watch, great explanation too!
  • Curtis Galloway
    Working in aviation maintenance and having a understanding of the tolerances, heat, and pressures involved I honestly was expecting a catastrophic failure. I just knew that there would either be excessive vibration that would lead to something fragmenting and shattering the transparent enclosure. Watching this video from beginning to end was AWESOME! I definitely hit the Subscribe button after watching this video.
  • Douglas Jankey
    Extremely impressive skill level and engineering ability. I used to work with Rolls Royce engines and when he demonstrated the process of balancing the rotor it brought back a ton of good memories on the assembly floor. His equipment and knowledge of operation makes this video even more outstanding. A++
  • Karl Hausdorf
    I have always loved jet engines! The details and definitive explanations make total sense. Im a gas engine guy, personally, but i learn a lot from your videos.
  • Gibran Bedra
    OK... as a turbine pilot I've gotta tell you: that was cool and some really kick ass serious engineering. Well done dude! Would've been curious how many newton's or even pounds of thrust that little whomper of a turbine produces!
  • I flew jet airliners for over 12,000 hours since 1984 and of course never got to see a burner can in operation. Very nice craftsmanship building it. Thank you for a very informative video!
  • Ownyx
    It's so cool to see professionals excited about this. You could know how something works, worked on them, used them for decades...and still blows their minds to see inside it as its operating. Great video!
