This may be the world's simplest turbine...no bearings, shafts or seals!
It's also possibly the world's fastest cranking pencil sharpener!
With a magnetic drive between the two as well.

Mrfixitrick does the impossible, using the power of magnets to make a working Tesla Turbine from 2 CD's, 4 magnets, and a CD jewel-case. A classic pencil sharpener goes to over 2000 rpm, connected magnetically with it!

The Tesla turbine works by the principle of boundary layer adhesion of fluid to the discs. From the nozzle, the fluid spirals inward through the discs, then out the centre exhaust port. The fluid imparts its energy to the discs, and normally a shaft, as it does so.

This revolutionary magnetic turbine uses the original Tesla disc turbine idea, but eliminates the shaft, bearings, and seals! There is only one moving part...a rotor consisting of four magnets sandwiched between two clear CD discs.

The magnetic rotor of the jewel-case turbine couples magnetically with the magnetic flywheel attached to the pencil sharpener. There is no direct mechanical connection.

Since the turbine itself is capable of over 8000 rpm before destruction, mrfixitrick also shows torture testing of a new clear polycarbonate cover that ensures safe testing.
