sounds like a good job to me, maybe i should try to get a job at the local science center.DJDAudio said:ha ha I sit at work (carnegie science center) and just think things up waiting for something to break ha ha. so lots of time on my hands lol.
I shure hope it works the design is sound and has been around for 100+ years I just want to mak it better. faster quiter.. lolBRAINWASHED5150 said:]I wish I had the time to pursue some of my ideas.:dunno: Thinking is so much fun, who needs drugs. Hey if you know a little something about electronics I've got another project for you. Pm me if you're interested or if you know someone who is qualified.
hey you have some good points !dragginbody365 said:By the way, im not trying to flame, i like the idea, i admire someone who actually has good ideas and trys to bring them to life, so dont think im being negative, Im just bringing up things to consider.

The little space on the return was ment to be there, it will take already compressed air and alow it back into the inlet to boost the pressure ability of the compressor.
The upper and lower seal is going to be tricky. and yes a check valve is a must.
about high pressure the smaller the piston the highe the pressure with less power so a paralel system with 8 of these in line on one motor will be a smooth and high pressure ... I hope lol
here is a inside center model,
The red dot is the drive shaft it will spin and roll against the outer bearings and get them to spen will act alot like a gear reduction.
The black ring is a possable seal ring bearing.
dragginbody365 said:ooohhhh....That makes sense. The good thing about the design, is you can make it spin very fast, without too much heat buildup, since its pushing instead of compressing. Your probobly going to need a pretty beefy motor tho, since your spinning 8 of em. A 5hp 12v motor runs about 300 from most industrial supply places. I seriously looked into buying one a short while ago. I was going to mount it under the bed, and put a pully on 2 york 210s. It would be a 5hp twin york setup. Total cost would have been around 550 after everything, but it would push ALOT of air.
