Yes, the swirl cage is a shaped concrete cage with curved walls, having small steel sliding windows around the periphery. These windows, many many feet below the surface, hold back the whole damn lake. When they open the water enters at an angle with great force, driving the vertical water turbine and the generator above it. If those widows opened when you were in there, even without a turbine in place, you wouldn't stand a snowball's chance it hell.

I found it, not homemade, it's a 1901 Slinger. Was 5 hp, one gear, 35mph. Copper radiator around the cylinder.

That is pretty cool.

There are loads of interesting designs out there for toys and tools that simply lacked lightweight motors... Maybe I should just build an aircraft.

Back in the day they had to train mechanics to service a tremendous variety of cars, when many of the students had never driven a car.
