Pumps and Hydraulic Rams
SKU: phr/335/000
Binding: Paperback 193 Pages

A hydraulic ram is a water-powered cyclic pump. It harnesses the forces of water hammer to pump a portion of the water being used to power the pump to a point higher than where the water originally started. It is sometimes used in remote areas, where the right conditions exist, since it requires no outside source of power other than the kinetic energy of falling water.

Chapters include: suction pumps and lift pumps, making simple suction pumps, pump cup leathers, pump valves, ram or plunger pumps, making a bucket and plunger pump, construction of a plumber's force pump, wooden pumps, small pumps for special purposes, centrifugal pumps, air-lift and pulsometer pumps, and hydraulic rams.

The book has been re-published from the original and contains the whole script, diagrams and formulas. The book has been reformatted and is not just a scanned copy of the original.

This is followed by instructions on how to build Hero’s Turbine, a Walking Beam Engine, a Crosshead Engine and an Internal Combustion Type of Engine - all from tin cans. In truth, of these only the first is a working model, but the ideas and techniques here are interesting and potentially useful, so consider treating yourself to a copy of this 120 page, profusely illustrated, paperback.

The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla - ebook
SKU: ljnt/ebook/000

Tesla is preceded in greatness only by Michael Faraday who in 1831 rocked the scientific world with his discovery that magnetism can produce electricity, if it is accompanied by motion. Faraday discovered the principle, but not how to make it power the world; Tesla alone accomplished this singular feat. Tesla is one of only two Americans to have a unit of electrical measurement named in his honor. Names for units of electrical measurement are derived by using the names of scientists who made the greatest contributions in electrical science, forming perhaps the most elite group in the world. Throughout the entire history of electrical science only fifteen men worldwide have received this honor. Tesla is one of these great men. In addition, Tesla received fifteen honorary degrees from famous universities worldwide, including Yale and Columbia in the United States.

Building the Maltese Falcon
SKU: btmf/cam/372/597
Binding: Paperback: 47 pages
Want to build a BIG model I.C. engine? This is a 260cc Flat Four, Side Valve engine which turns a (scale) 34" x 18" propeller at 2500 rpm, and measures 8" in length and depth, and 13" in width across the heads. Essentially designed to be built from solid, Jim can supply certain parts, notably a magneto kit, and standard Honda pistons can be used if you want to get your Maltese Falcon running as quickly as possible - parts suppliers are listed. Whilst not a beginner's project, this engine can be built by any competent model engineer, and even if you just build one as your next project, will give you the satisfaction of blowing the club away, when you finally demonstrate it at an "On the Table" Club Night! And, of course, having built the engine, you could then horrify the neighbours by building a giant model aircraft for it to power! But what really intrigues me about the Maltese Falcon is what else you could drive with it, in some cases with modifications to the cooling arrangements; large scale model road vehicles, notably a large scale model tractor, and 71?4" gauge railway motive power, but an outboard motor, a GT lawn mower and a motor bike would also all seem possible for the clever amongst you. In this book you get the full drawing set of 11 sheets, reduced in size to fit A3 format, and 36 A4 pages of notes, hints and tips on building the engine, plus numerous photos of parts and set-ups for making them; this isn't a construction manual in the sense of "Building the Bentley BR2....", but it is all good solid information aimed at helping the builder to make a 'model' I.C. engine which really will make people's jaws drop! Wirebound with card covers.
