Welcome back to the our channel for a discussion about how some of the most powerful jet engines are manufactured, repaired, and cleaned. It’s amazing how balanced the fan blades remain when in use, even when exposed to vibrations, high temperature and stress these components are under. And there’s literally no wiggle room when it comes to tolerances. Another mind boggling thing that usually never gets explained is before the engine and parts are produced, every tool, press, dies and other specialty items need to be designed and made from raw materials from tooling that will make something that it itself can not do! Incredible! In the old days, when Boeing 727 and DC-9 aircraft were very common, some facilities did not use cranes, but instead had gantries which could be closed in around the rear of aircraft to permit engine removal or servicing. The upper deck would be 45 feet tall. Insane engineering in jet engines. People used to laugh when I would tell them. That i had a rolls Royce jet engine in my front garden. I used to rent a cottage off s scrap merchant. He acquired this engine for scrap.which was in a steel frame. It was used for testing engine parts in short’s aeronautics belfast.
