Stronger and Faster: V8 Solenoid Engine

Stronger and Faster: V8 Solenoid Engine

Short notice: this video is in Dutch and it is gonna be awesome! click here for subtitles and have fun! a few months ago I got made this v1 solenoid engine that was super cool then I wanted to take it a step further and I have made this v4 but we can make it even better! I am Emiel, The Practical Engineer and today I make a V8 Solenoid Engine. Let’s go! Besides it having twice as many spools this time I’m going to do more things differently this time. I’m going to switch with infrared instead of mechanical and I am going to make the crankshaft on my CNC cutter. Let’s start with that. [Music] Look its done. Super cool. These two have already left I think I can take it off like this. You should see this. Super cool! Of course I still have to clean it a bit they are all stuck to the paper but they are very cool.
00: 01: 20,240 –>00: 01: 23,060
I will first switch on the CNC program for the connecting rods, then it can do it’s thing while I clean these up. That was a bit.
Let’s try this again. Have we learned anything from it? Yes! Take it easy They are very small But they turned out really cool. Look at that I’m going to drill the holes by hand They are so small that it is
very hard to do on the CNC. I have the connecting rods, I have the base parts
for the crankshaft and all these pieces of axle to assemble it and just like the
last time I will glue it together. It is just a tedious job
but then it is pretty. I already have pieces of the crankshaft put together and now I have to put
two connecting rods on it and then glue the other part on it The problem I have with the V4 solenoid
that is the first and the last axis are not quite in line and are
a bit crooked too the moment it starts to turn, the entire shaft went
like this. It didn’t look like nice. So for now I have
a tool printed where I can clamp the whole axle and hopefully I can
get the first axis and the last one aligned and doesn’t not wiggle. While this dries I can explain why this video is in Dutch
I once chose English because english yes it is spoken a lot.
Many people speak english And so I can reach a lot of people
but what I noticed is my videos are slightly less spontaneous
then i would like. I have to think about what I’m going to say
And yes I was not completely satisfying to me so thought about giving it a try in Dutch I am quite satisfied with it myself. let
me know what you think about it in the comments In the meantime, I’m going to start with the front and back and just like with the V4 solenoid engine
I use transparent polycarbonate to make them.
They looked super nice so why not. This is only slightly thicker than last time
and now I’m going to make it on the CNC instead of the normal router.
if you want to know who how you do this with a normal router then take a look
at the video there. These come here with the crankshaft
in between. Then here comes an aluminum plate where the solenoids
all are mounted on. I drew them twice so I can cut them out
stick them on the aluminum and just make them by hand. You don’t have to mill everything Now that we have made these plates
I can use this to mark where they are going. I drilled and tapped all the holes and I can now place the bearings that I bought.
I’m leaving the foil in place so that it doesn’t get scratched.
I’ll remove this at the very end. And then I can put it together.
Let’s do that! My first idea was to make the spools all from brass:
like this. But I tried it and that was a bad
idea because then you have to remove all this material. Then I thought: I’ll make it like this and add a ring later That worked pretty well but then you are throwing away a lot of brass
because you always have to remove all this. Then I came across this piece of aluminum
in my workshop and I thought what if you make the tube from aluminum and then
only the rings from brass. It still looks nice, saves a lot of work and you are
not throwing away so much material. For this kind of work a lathe is very easy. if you don’t
have a lathe and you still want to do this project just buy one. Do you know the disadvantage of making eight coils? 7 And that: is number eight! The next step is to get the plungers to the
attach to the connecting rods and that is a real tedious job.
I have to put the plungers in here And then with the connecting rod in the right place
and without space actually put a screw in it. It works! haha nice! This is going to
become really cool! To make sure it keeps its momentum
between the strokes there’s a flywheel here. And it it also looks
just nice. Last time I had made of brass
this time I’m making it from aluminum. To control the solenoid engine
made two printed circuit boards. I didn’t film this because electronics are boring!
let’s try that again. because electronics is boring! That’s better!
That signal then goes to this pcb and there are four mosfets on this pcb
and some more junk. When this mosfet gets a signal it
switches those two coils so I have 4 so i have eight coils and four mosfets
So every time it switches it switches two coils. So this seems like a nice
moment to put on the wooden stand and to wire it up. It is not all in there but I want to
test it first. Shall we just do that? The flag is not mounted yet
so it is not going to run now but I can test to see whether the sensors work and whether smoke comes out Nothing happens at all.. this is what I mean by electronics And why is nothing happening? I just burned all the coils.
I don’t know what happened but suddenly there was a lot of smoke. A few components on the
PCB were broken and these coils are now all short circuited with each other
so it didn’t go quite right. I think there is only 1 thing on it
and that is remaking the coils Let’s just do that. Let’s just try again. this has potential Hey hey hey, it works!! very cool! If you liked this video then
we just continue there. I have a small playlist compiled with more
of this type of videos see you there!

  1. let§ go! (•‿•)👍💚
    this is how many people love that channel. 👇

  2. Hoe groot zou je een cilinder kunnen maken die ook nog efficiënt werkt. Zou een leuk project kunnen zijn om met master milo een rijdend voertuig te maken waar je zelf mee kan rijden.

  3. Omg ik wist dat je nederlands was maar het verschil om je van het Engels naar het Nederlands te horen praten is ik weet Ni hoe grappig maar ook geweldig. Was even aanpassen 😅😄 van waar kom je als ik vragen mag 😅 land, provincie 😀

  4. Y los subtítulos?😵😵

  5. Why did you switch from English all of a sudden? Im unsubscribing.

  6. Gaaf project

  7. Kan je checken hoeveel pk hij maakt en mischien een hele grote bouwen :)))))

  8. I dont understand but I like the video

  9. Bravo superbe travail .

  10. Supergaaf! Great job!

  11. Zeer innovatief! En cool.

  12. awesome content keep it up

  13. awesome content keep it up dude

  14. I like the idea of you switching to Dutch because it is easier for you but I would prefer if you instead spoke in Dutch and made a dutch version of your vid but in the same vid you did a voiceover in English and uploaded that instead so that way everything is still fast and you don’t have to think before you speak but English speaker fans can still understand you and listen without having to resort to subtitles, I understand that is more work for you though.

  15. Misschien is het handig om aan het begin van de video een stuk tekst in het engels tezetten dat zegt dat je ondertieteling aan kunt zetten. Want de mensen begrijpen geen nederlands dus en gaan dus ook niet weten dat je ondertieteling aan kunt zetten. Ik heb al in de reacties aan een paar engelse sprekende mensen gezegd dat ze ondertieteling aan kunnen zetten zo dat jij dat niet hoeft te zeggen

  16. i did not understand anything but i liked it

  17. Het helpt inderdaad, je videos waren al erg goed maar nu heb je er ook wat spontanere grapjes ook in. Een groot minpunt alleen is: 'elektronica is saai' daar moeten we nog over in discussie 😉

  18. Need a nice slow motion 30 sec shot at the end.

  19. Super gaaf project! En elektronica is niet saai 😄

  20. I don't mind you switching to Dutch since I as a German can still understand it.
    Keep up this great content! 👍

  21. Also, I understand its easier and more off the cuff using your native language. Another suggestion would be after that, reupload with a dubbed English version maybe? That way you get the more relaxed verbal presentation, while also having 2 videos which your audience can choose from. Similar to what Great Scott does.

  22. Noooo man go back to English please now you limited your content to very less amount of people English is the the world's universal language its not my mother language tho

  23. Next year: V 1024 solenoid engine

  24. Hey Emiel, you know I really like your videos but I have to admit I'm not a fan of the Dutch speaking. From a purely selfish point of view I found the 2 main issues were that as I read the subtitles to work out what you're saying I was missing small bits of the video but even more importantly I didn't get a feel for your usual enthusiasm and humour as it doesn't come across as well in a different language. Sorry bud but this doesn't work for me and now I feel like I've missed out 😔

  25. This is the best channel in YouTube history

  26. Next up: a radial engine?

  27. I'm from germany and I am always amazed how much I understand when someone speaks dutch.

  28. Super vet!!! Dit inspireerd mij heel erg om zelf ook dingen te maken!😍

  29. your english vids are just as great! Die hebben ook mijn vookeur in alle eerlijkheid 😀

  30. Wonderful project! The Dutch works good. NEW T-SHIRT IDEA: “Don’t have a lathe?… Go buy one!” Love it!! 🙂

  31. Hola! No se si lo recuerdas pero hace un tiempo tenias una gran comunidad que hablaba español, soy de los pocos que siguen aqui y queria decirte que me encanta tu trabajo

  32. Subtitles covering some of the video. By the time I've read the subtitles you've moved on.
    Sorry not a fan😭

  33. Dutch, mooi experiment. Denk dat je beter lekker in het Engels blijft. Grotere doelgroep, en ik vind de video's in het engels gewoon goed, daar voelt weinig niet spontaan aan.. Also: you'll get better with practice!

  34. While I can't understand or speak a word of Dutch, seeing you enjoy this vid so much makes it totally worth it. I say stick with Dutch. While I'm not personally a fan of reading subtitles usually, I can make an exception for your vids 😛

  35. Jeetje wat praat jij snel zeg, zelfs voor een nederlander is het soms moeilijk te volgen. Goeie tip trouwens over die draaibank ik zal hem onthouden.😉

  36. Gaaf! Mooi project! Je bent goed bezig, ik geniet elke keer weer van je video's 👍

  37. I don't mind subtitles, I watch a lot of films/tv with subtitles. Improves reading speed. 😁

  38. Translation is fine… Viva Holland!

  39. Ik vind Nederlands gesproken video’s wel prettiger om naar te kijken, maar het zou wel jammer zijn als je hierdoor kijkcijfers verliest, we weten allemaal dat hobby’s geld kosten (;

  40. Would be good to see if you can put a RC gearbox on there.

  41. As long as the subtitles are great I am happy in any language.

  42. Ahy papantla de selaya

  43. Weer een pracht video afgeleverd Emiel! Leuk dat je ook bent overgestapt naar het Nederlands👍

  44. Speaking in both English and Dutch throughout the video would be cool. I always like seeing how many words sound the same in various European languages. Even as an uncultured American, I was able to pick up at least one word per sentence that sounded very similar.

  45. That sounds so cool. Amazing work dude!

  46. MONSSSSTRUOOOO¡!!!!!!!

  47. I'm very dyslexic and cannot speak Dutch, but I can just pause a few times if I have trouble reading so if you're more comfortable with Dutch then don't worry to much. I just hope the subtitles are accurate.

  48. If speaking Dutch is more comfortable, I say go for it! I also like having subtitles instead of a voiceover or dubbing, because hearing the words while reading the translations is a great way to start learning to understand a language.

  49. I don't undestand deutch, subtitles on english would be great, else i can not see video and understand.

  50. I prefer the English spoken videos, sorry😅

  51. Goeie keuze om naar nederlands te gaan! Komt een stuk gemakkelijker over.

  52. Really cool Emiel, awesome work! 😃👍🏻👊🏻

  53. Conclusies:
    1) Je bent nóg gezelliger in het nederlands
    2) Zo leer ik eindelijk ook eens wat al die dingen in het nederlands heten, ik leer alles over hout/metaal/CAM van youtube, in het engels en woon al meer dan 10 jaar in het buitenland en dan pik je niet zo makkelijke nieuwe nederlandse woorden op, dus ben superblij dat je dit doet!


  55. It's sound like a diesel

  56. Awesome!!!!!

  57. I'll keep watching either way, your projects speak for themselves, one small request, dont talk so fast if your gonna switch I can't read that fast, lol

  58. Top video! Your previous video inspired me to make a 3d printed solenoid lock! My video is underway!

  59. Why why in dutch ??

  60. I love hearing the Dutch as an American with Dutch family. Hopefully at some point I'll be able to watch without subtitles

  61. YES! Een ander maker-kanaal in het Nederlands!
    Cool project, Emiel!

  62. Do the videos in whatever language you like! I can read English and will watch regardless. Superb entertaining engineering, your enthusiasm rubs off onto others for sure!

  63. For version 2, perhaps add a bunch of (resettable) fuses so you don't burn out the coils so easily? 😉

  64. Can you make them for sale

  65. great video but i would just like to point out that sometimes the speed at which you talk and the subtitles makes it hard to fully enjoy the video. great job as always and i hope you can find a production method that satisfies you.

  66. Heel fijn dat ik je gesproken woord helemaal kan volgen, sommige Engelse termen staan niet in mijn persoonlijke woordenboek, dus bedankt.

  67. Could you please add specs of the engine… here is a nice link to get some ideas from: keep up the great work! 👏🏻👍🏻

  68. Im from México and I like your videos, it does t matter the language

  69. I loved the Dutch!

  70. I thought: why im not understanding him today? Yep… took me a minute till i remembered you spoke another language as well. XD

    Still fun to watch gotta admit. Good Vid.

  71. Heel fijn! Hou ervan!

  72. We hebben meer aandacht en afbeeldingen van de complete engine nodig.

  73. Nederlandstalige maker video's zijn altijd een aanrader

  74. I like the Dutch 🙂
    Very cool project I like following you in ig aswell ! Field__mouse

  75. Great project!! Language doesn't bother me!!

  76. If their's one thing I hate, it's people intolerant of other people's customs…… AND THE DUTCH!!!

  77. I love that your doing videos in Dutch since I'm trying to learn it slowly and I can somewhat understand it cause German. And subtitles are fine for the rest.
    However maybe put the subtitles In the video directly since how YouTube does It, it Sometimes covers important parts.
    And it would be really great if the timing and splitting were a bit better since it's really hard to follow like this at the moment.
    I don't know how your currently making the subtitles but if you're in need of a good program Aegisub is really good.

    I can't see if you have it enabled or not but I think there is an option for the community to create subtitles in YouTube.

  78. Inderdaad Emiel, je bent nog enthousiaster en spontaner. Houwen zo 👍 wat een gaaf project. En was ‘M’ blij met haar ‘M’? 😉

  79. Dutch works fine especially given your explanation of why it's being done in Dutch. Thank you for the video!

  80. Nice work. This is absolutely amazing

  81. Cool Video.But I can´t work with the english subtitle, because i can´t enjoy the video like this

  82. Great project! I can really relate to the spontaneous thing with the languages. I also feel like I get constrained or "stiffened up" when talking in English.
    I find it a bit harder to follow along when I have to constantly read subtitles though.

  83. Ben naar hier gestuurd door Henk Rijckaert "De Koterij" en natuurlijk heb je een sub bij.

  84. Hier door Henk, geen spijt van 🙂

  85. Gestuurd door Henk Rijckaert van De koterij.

  86. Nice man!! Groetjes een belgische kijker!!

  87. Dutch is fine if it has good (not autotranslated) subtitles but obviously I prefer English. 😉 I'm slowly learning some Dutch from watching MasterMilo82 all the time…

  88. Making the video in Dutch was cool and it seemed like you were a lot more comfortable using it than English, but it was kind of hard to keep up with the subtitles

  89. I don't mind the subtitles. And I have no idea how any of this project works (no engineering experience at all for me), but it was fun to watch you build it!

  90. Your accent in English is cool. I confess, as I'm not a native English speaker, I had some trouble following up the video.

  91. Next video, put a message on the video about the change of language and that english subtitles are available.
    I got caught off guard by the sudden change as the intro was in english.

  92. Dude. If I can learn Dutch AND how to make cool stuff, I’m all in. Besides, I’m pretty fluent in Maker, so it’s pretty easy to follow along. Also, it seems like the worst part of making 8 coils is making 16…

  93. Very cool project Emiel! Enjoyed watching this in-spite of the fact I’ll likely never attempt this. Really enjoyed hanging out and chauffeuring you around in Atlanta. As for Dutch. I grew up watching Chinese martial arts films. All sub titles. I adjust relatively quickly. It might be fun to have a Brit to overdub one of the videos as a collab. 🤣

  94. Much love of a ' de koterij' viewer 🙂

  95. Prachtig compacte werkplaats 🙂 En boeiende content … dubbel op ! 🙂

  96. Ik ben hier beland door De Koterij van Henk Rijckaert. En ik moet zeggen: dit is geweldig! Heel fijn om naar te kijken en zeer leerrijk!
    Groetjes uit het koude België

  97. Henk crew, ook echt een super nice video

  98. Love your projects ❤️
    Make a boxer engine

  99. I heard Deutsche at the beginning, not Dutch… Really confused for a while.

  100. veel succes met het Nederlands!!
