In order to get torque from a single stage machine using a true Tesla rotor you need surface area.

However, the torque is supposed to come from the axle of the 2nd stage turbine.

The most misunderstood fact about the Tesla turbine is it is the combination of the two turbines that makes the machine.

I’ve not seen one built this way apart from in photos of Tesla’s own turbines.

The quote above from Tesla states that self regulating isn’t possible with a single stage machine unless the rotor diameter is large.
