Younger kid had to build an electric motor for a school project. Having a garage full of stuff, it was no hassle to find everything required to build one.
I made her wind the coil.

If you fill up the tank of a 1.9 TDI VW Golf with unleaded, it will go 10 kilometers before quitting.
One gemsbok sirloin, cut into thick steaks and marinaded in a mixture of oil, lemon juice, wooster* sauce, garlic and rosemary for about eight hours. Dredge in seasoned flour…
…fry in a hot pan with some oil…
…until done (in this case kids, so some of these are rather well done).
Mushrooms (and beer) on the side…
…and an egg on top. Nom.
This is a C1166 Pulse Tetrode made by English Electric, who also made transistors. Good for switching 17 500 volts at 15 amps. But only for 1 microsecond every 1 millisecond (1T4 and AA battery for scale).
The filament alone needs almost 60 watts (9 amps at 6.3 volts).
Quite useless unless one wants to build a glowbug radar or something. But quite marvelous in a way.
Back in 1935, Charles Garrett built a carburetor that allowed a standard car engine to run on water.
I wonder what they’re going to do about these fellows making fuel from water using solar power?
