  • Making a shaft

  • Step 1

    Drill a hole in one edge of a cartridge tube to insert a tube into the hole of the magnetic brush (from 1010).

  • Step 2

    To protect plasstic gears from overheating I put on the body of the capacitor (from the same power supply, which was taken cooler). The shaft must be sealed.

  • Valve

  • Step 5

    It serves to equalize the pressure and venting of excess air of the homemade hookah's tank to prevent water geting into the shaft. Also, the valve is used to purge. While not strong drag valve need to pass air into tank, but while long strong drag - must totally blocked air. All air will go through shaft.
    The valve consists of two bolts with a large hat, part of a gel pen and the housing. The housing is made from metal tubing, for example from a television cable connector. One end is threaded into the cap of the tank and on the other end there is two recesses are made for air passage.
