Honorable /diy/,i come to you in the hope you'd share a fraction of your extensive kbowledge about the inner workings of things.I am looking for a technical drawing of the mechanic that uses water flow to make a lawn sprinkler turn. If someone could enlighten me i'd be very grateful.Yours sincerely, Anon
>>1132173You think that's how it works? I was always assuming there is a propeller kind of device inside.
>>1132219a propeller is literally the opposite of what you want to do.what you meant to say is you thought there was a turbine in there.
>>1132159>a technical drawing of the mechanic that uses water flow to make a lawn sprinkler turnThere is this thing called Google...first. funkin. result.
>>1132220>>1132221Of course i googled it and ow coruse i read the madehow article. Still i am looking for the turbine solution of which i am sure that it has been applied.
>>1132159>I am looking for a technical drawing of the mechanic that uses water flow to make a lawn sprinkler turn.>>1132232>i am looking for the turbine solution of which i am sure that it has been applied.Are you changing your request?
>>1132239Ok, i was under the asumption that turbine is the term for a device where the water flows parallel to the axis of the so called turbine. Therefore i mistakingly used the word propeller as these produce a stream parallel to their axis.If i had to describe the pic related device i'd call it medieval millwheel.
>>1132256Actually, you asked for a drawing of how they work and included a picture of a sprinkler.The drawing I posted shows how they work. It's of a sprinkler like your picture.
>>1132282Yeah, that is correct. Thank you for that.Are you assuming that it is the same mechanism as in your pic, just fitted to a cylindrical case? The cylindrical shape of the box made me think there has to be an axis running through its center.
>>1132408Just buy the fuckin thing and cut it apart.You won't have to guess about what's inside.
