Great I got it. Welcome back. And I’m back on set today. Building another version. Of a see-through model rocket engine. That I built for a previous episode. Where I just cut the model rocket engine in
half. I mounted to a piece of high temperature acrylic. Film it’s in slow motion. And the idea behind that was. To show you how the model rocket engine works
internally. I realized halfway in that episode. That I should probably make a proper engine. So this time I’m going to go with my original
plan. And I’m going to make an entirely see-through
model rocket engine. Properly. And our main components are going to be. This c67 rocket engine. And a piece of laboratory grade glass tubing. The idea is that simple. Get this model rocket engine inside this tube. So what’s the difficult part?. Well that’s another story. I now machined the cardboard casing on a rocket. Perfect right there. .495″. Now that I have the core component of my see-through
model rocket engine done. I am left with one problem. And that is this mess. Of powdered model rocket fuel Leftover. I have to figure out a way to clean this up. And I think I’m going to burn it. Yeah let’s burn it. Here we go. I only have one shot at this. Let’s clean up this lathe. Oh that was cool. Man that smells good. I want to interrupt the programming. To talk about something really quickly. I saw a few YouTube videos on how to cut glass
tubing. And I was perplexed by the whole thing. These guys are setting up all these crazy
rigs period and spending all this money. Especially when they’re building a. They cut glass tubing a lot. When they are building PC water cooling systems. I just want to show you really quickly. If you ever want to cut glass tubing really
easy and simple. You just get one of these cheap tile saws
right here. You buy one of these. They are really cheap. They cut the tube and no problem. So back to our programming. That’s how it leaves it right there. And here is the fuel. It was quite a lot of work. To make this fit perfectly. Right inside that tube. And it doesn’t even leak air. Check this out. It’s perfectly sealed in there. Now I have my fully functional. Fully transparent. See-through model rocket engine done. And in my opinion I think it came out pretty
awesome. You can clearly see the nozzle. The main stage. And the ejection stage Of the rocket. And I think this thing is going to look just
awesome. Now I just have to get it set up. And ready to fire. Godspeed see-through model rocket engine. I’m really happy that my see-through model
rocket engine was a success. The footage looks phenomenal. The thing worked great. Better than I expected. And let’s take a look at what we have left
over. We got the casing. The nozzle is still kind of intact. And it was really cool. Because we were able to see it burn through
all the stages. And one thing I did notice. Is that right when it got two about this portion
of the stage. It started burning more violently. And producing more thrust. You can even see the stand. Kind of get pushed over. then it hit the ejection stage. And made a lot of smoke. And some other stuff. This was really a fun project for me. It was definitely challenging from an engineering
standpoint. To figure out how I was going to make this
whole thing transparent. And I thought it was going to blow up. But if I actually held together. So that being said. I appreciate everybody suggestions. For this episode. That I’ve Incorporated.
