Ingham, Queensland, Australia - 01/07/12 I have been working with energy devices for 30 years now. I am going to build a High density energy storage system that will store 150 KW of energy. It is based on a Super Hot rock/cast Iron /ceramic tile with a external vacuum chamber to insulate it. I will have a flash boiler and Tesla Turbine running a 6 kw 3 phase alternator to run to my temporary battery and from there too a grid interactive inverter to feed my house and feed back into the grid. The extra energy from my solar panels, wind generator and solar Stirling engine   will drive 3 x 3 kw sauna elements to heat the core. I currently have a 3 Kw grid interactive solar system up and running. I am a Telecommunication Technician by trade and have a Associate Diploma in Electrical Engineering.

Danny Young



Alvaton KY - 01/02/12 I would like to join your group. I have built a solar condensing mirror pool heater and want to convert my 10' satellite dish to a steam turbine generator. Your site is very interesting. Has anyone converted a Wankel type engine to steam power? Is the Tesla turbine the very best to use for steam to electricity?
Thank You for your work.

Ionescu Mihai


Bucharest, Romania - 09/02/11 I'm a student at the Electronics and Telecomunications University. I am researching on how to make an autonomous green house that could produce vegetables all year around. I am looking forward to start making a tesla generator that could supply electric energy to the sensors, control mechanisms and the central control monitor. I've read your published articles on the website but I cannot build the complete system without the schematics and of course your specialised help.  My current status as a student, and the fact that I live in a poor country can make you understand that I do not have a lot of money. I thank you for the time.

Floyd Blevins


Owasso (will  be changing to Tahlequah soon), Oklahoma - 08/01/11 Hello! I'm glad to  have found you. I've been thinking for years about building a solar  power generator of my own design for years, and now that I've quit my  job and am going back to college to finish a music degree now seems to  be the perfect time. Integral to the design I have in mind is of course a Tesla turbine (two, actually), a Stirling engine and a 6 foot parabolic dish for proof of concept. - I've scoured the Internet for resources on Tesla turbines and found some good information, however there are some  specifics I'm still unsure of, so will be asking some questions (some  obvious and stupid most likely).

Don Gollan


Camden, NSW, Australia - 07/06/11  I have search long and hard for a way  to explore this match up of technoligy with the idea of adding further  high tech stuff. Please let me in to the discussions and in touch with  Aussies with similar interests. I am interested, also in applications  for Christian Missions. My background is in efficient manufacturing of  motor vehicles and in design and building of machinery for packaging and conveyors. I am happy to provide more specific details in this regard.

Marty Readling


Davidson, NC - 06/27/11 Has anyone ever tried a Brayton cycle engine?  You'd have to have more than one stage for the turbine, and the feed pump to  get high enough mechanical efficiency for it to work, since the Brayton  cycle requires much more work by the feed pump, to compress the working  fluid.  There's work going on now at Sandia labs with supercritical CO2 Brayton cycles.  Very high thermal efficiencies, with  relatively high heat rejection temperatures, allowing smaller cheaper  heat exchangers, and better co-generation opportunities.

Chuck Bagwell

Erie, MI USA - 05/22/11 A new energy source has been discovered.  I think a Tesla  Turbine/pump combo would be the perfect machine to take advantage of the E-CAT technology (see my website) I built my first small TT 20 years  ago and ran it at 10K RPM on compressed air.┬  I started looking for a cheap source of steam to run a bigger unit. I found it!┬  I am  looking for collaborators to help design and build a Tesla Turbo  Generator.  It will be around 1300 horse power and run on 700 PSI,  1000░ F Steam, at around 3,400 pounds per hour flow.  Since a TT  does not require superheat and can run on two phase flow, the latent  heat of condensation┬  can be Saved and pumped back to the 1 MW  thermal E-CAT boiler unit.  Do any of your members have the  necessary expertise for a project of this scope?

Jim Van Buskirk


Austin, Texas - 02/24/11 I am interested in building a turbine for power  generation, experimenting with and improving efficiency, reliability and sustainability and finding an appropriate fuel source. The end goal is  for powering a localized, off-grid community of roughly 40 homes, and  then being able to showcase this as a blueprint for other rural and even larger infrastructures. This is independent research for a non-profit,  missionary cause. Thank you for your inspiration


Calvin Rodriguez


Escondido, California - 02/24/11 I am employed by the USMC at the Marine Corp  Recruite Depot, working in the machine shop as a maintance mechanic with out any machinist experience, (learning on the job). I have recently  discovered the web site and club as part of my research toward energy  cogeneration, ultimately hoping to get off the grid. I have purchased  the disc and begun crude fabrication without any direction. I'm very  eager to get my hands on the disc and the precious information, to save  me from having to reinvent the wheel.


Ryan Werner


Reed City, Michigan - 02/16/11 I am very interested in creating a  wood/biomass gasification cogeneration boiler using a Tesla Turbine.

Oak Harbor, WA - 02/10/11 Your website has definitely sparked my interest  in the Tesla turbine and it's use for power generation. I have very  little mechanical skill or tools but I am looking forward to start  learning.


William Dominguez


Los Angeles, CA - 01/28/11 I found your site when I was looking for  information on torpedo burners and other water injected combustion  boiler technology. I was looking for an eco friendly way to use natural  gas in a combustion boiler to drive a small impulse or Tesla turbine.  The turbine would be coupled to a small generator┬  and the hot  exhaust gas would be used to produce additional electrical power using  thermoelectric power conversion chips. In your club's site I found that  Luis Mendon├ža's had already done this sans the thermoelectric  conversion. I would like to follow your site.

Ron Schmidt


Canby, Oregon USA - 12/30/10 I have 2 CNC machines, if anyone needs parts, we can custom build anything, have lots of experience building turbos, airfoils for turbines GE, working on a water purification plant that will need a small solar turbine-Gen unit that we can ship out to countries like Haiti that are devestated and little kids die because they do not have clean water

Jerrold Strickler


Corinth, Texas - 08/07/10 I am currently modifying a 10 feet 4 in  diameter satellite tv dish to be used as a parabolic solar concentrator. I am interested in trying to build a solar generator and in searching for Tesla turbines I found your site. I have also found some interesting articles on squirrel cage turbines that look like good potential heat to mechanical converters.

  The simplicity of the Tesla design fascinates me and your article on the spacing vs hp and torque indicates that Tesla engines may be the best solution for my project. I look forward to reading more at your web site.

Ms Rose White

Halifax, West Yorkshire, England

I've been interested in Tesla stuff for many years and have a lifetime in precision engineering and steam systems valve manufacture right back to doing an apprenticeship in an ancient factory with lineshafting powered by a big single gas engine. However I don't have facilities now but I have lots of ideas about Tesla turbines that I'd like to run by the club members. Halifax used to be a engineering town with many famous names in lathes and machine tools and machinery but they have all disappeared or amalgamated.

Amman, Jordan - 10/22/10 I have a work shop with lots of hi-tech CNC's, i am working on a parabolic collector which is working great (, would like to make tesla turbine and link it with my system and see how it goes.

Jerry Fix


Ada, Michigan - 12/17/10 Hi group, I have been interested in the Tesla Turbine for a long time. I have been in the commercial refrigeration trade for 30 years. I always wanted to make a Tesla Turbine closed loop system using R123 and a solar concentrator. I live only 45 minutes from Lake Michigan, so we have a lot of cloudy days here. The turbine and bearings have to handle the heat and still be able to seal the R123 with no leaks.
