Hi Cadman,


Thanks for your CAD drawing. After seeing that your drawing comes out to 8.5 inches as the necessary distance from the wheel center to the bore hole centers, I decided to check the...

An angle relationship study for the 3/4-inch build

Today I decided to make a graph showing the angle relationships for the lay angle of 3/4-inch PVC pipes against the 90 degree elbows of adjacent pipes in order to determine what angles would be...

You are quite right, Cadman. With the pipes inserted in the bore holes, and positioned to touch the elbows of adjacent pipes, the angle that I measure is about 72 degrees (a guesstimate), which is 4...

Update on the 3/4 inch build

Well, my 27 millimeter cutters arrived, and so I was able to complete the bore hole drillings on the two 1/4 inch thick hardboard wheels. I'll show this process from layout to completion in case...

Update on small scale build

After considering several factors, I decided to start a 3/4 inch tube build size. I had questioned whether or not anything smaller than a 1 inch build would actually work, so decided to test that by...

Hello there, bistander. I just noticed your post after going all the way through this thread from the beginning to do some edits. After posting #14 and #15, I quickly realized how absurd my...

Final response to BroMikey

Okay, Mikey, I will correct you. You say that, "tubes A and G are counter-balancing each other," which would of course take them out of the equation. If you had done your own measurements and...

Dodecagon bore hole layouts

Response to Jim Glinski

Without a video, photo, or a scaled drawing of your wheel to examine, all one can do is to speculate. If your wheel came to a stop on its own, as you say, then obviously it would not start on its...

Response to BroMikey

Sorry, Mikey, but your reasoning is flawed. The actual force is dependent not only upon the applied weight in each tube, but also the distance the center of that weight lies from the wheel's...

Yes, I do understand what you are saying, and I had been thinking of a two-wheel setup on the same axle, spaced about 12 inches apart, so this would be somewhat similar to one of those large wooden...

In continuing to improve the basic design concept of the overbalance water wheel, I thought it best to concentrate not only on what works, but in making this as easy as possible to build. The...

Okay, so let's see what happens when we add in the water. Remember that each tube and its companion feeder/receiver vessel is completely independent of all remaining pairs. In other words, the...
