2012 I made a new visit at Robot historical museum. The museum organizers will preferably open for groups in order to handle guidings. Entrance fee is free but optional. It can be put in a big milkcan. at the entrance. The cause for my visit that a Merling engine was to be shown and started this day. First pictures for this show. Next i should follow the guidance as far as it was interesting. This guidance was primarly in the entrance hall. I wanted to look at the jet engines to get some more pictures. Furthermore I went around and checked for something interesting. They had put up a remembering wall with old photoes from the childhood of the air force. Behind Swedish air force one can find two front persons. Karl Albert Byron Amundsen (KABA) and Henrik Hamilton. These two seem to be mixed with each other in Wikipedia.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
From the beginning we didn't knew what kind of engine it was. It could have been a tank engine.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
But probably it was an air plane engine. But not from an fighter. In that case it would have a much bigger compressor.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Look at the propeller axle. Here there is a balance wheel from a car engine, just to get som weight. If their had been a propeller, it  woulf be problem with safety.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Remarably nice exhaust pipes. In original they must have been longer. Silencer "What the hell".
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Startpanel. This kind of engine never starts at once. This one were coughing for some time before all cylinder got their ignition in order.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Of course we understood that it was an air plane engine. This can also been seen on the frame work. Typical construction.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
This is a double photo. Look at the man holding his ear closed.
Now I show some pictures about Viggen and jet engines.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Lars Heimersson, my boss when I worked at Kontima constructions. He had flying license earlier. Here he looks inside a Viggen simulator.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
A Jetmotor which show the construction. They had several more from J29 over Viggen and JAS.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
What you can see here is a part of the compressor. This makes up a overpressure for burning chamers. In thiscase it  is a several rotor compressor. The higher pressure the smaller wings. A J29 has only 2 stages and much alike. Comparing for the multi stages engine the diameter is much bigger. This make a thrust which can act as a driving force. A remarkably way.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Let us look backwards as far as the outlet. What we see here is the driving axle which gives the compressor the rotation power. The black opened box is one of the burners. Here under high pressure kerosene is injected to the right. Compressed air is let inside through holes around the injector. This mixture is burning continuous. There will be a high temperature and large volume increase. This will blow out backwards and gives rotation power for the rotors.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Picture from a smaller jet engine.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
This engine is mounted in a service module. It is imposing how many srews which is needed. It is a very extensive work how much time it must take to make service.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
One engine for J29 or may be Vampire. One can here see the compressor part to the left.  This part has a much bigger diameter. Then you see the burning chambers which end up infront of the exhaust turbine. The axle in the middle gives rotation power to the compressor.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
A overview picture of a jet engine for SK-60. This type has another type of burning chamber.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Data for a turbo jet engine. It is probably for A32 Lansen?. Normal thrust is 4500 kp.

The following picturs are from the remembering wall.  There are old time pictures which I have taken photoes of.  All from the childhood of air force. Many of them are bound to the area of Arboga. These pictures describe a time which I fell very interesting. Personally I got in touch with the time.

Captain Henrik Hamilton. He got flying certificate in France at Breguet. Swedish Air Force bouhgt one of this kind. He was supposed to fly but crashed very often. At last he was badly hurt and got future banned to fly. Instead he was used to build up the Swedish Force. Robot museum. Ref. 1
 Short timeline for Captain Henrik Hamilton.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
Hamilton's plane was always placed here after a chrash.
Robot museum. Ref. 1
It was not the fault of Hamilton to use a bad air plane construction.

 Info previous picture. Wikipedia must have mixed these two persons.

Info about former picture. Declare about KABA and Hamilton. Both have got the same timline.

One air plane which is constructed by Fjällbäck at Södertälje Werkstäder.

Short history for Lars Fjällbäck. He worked with Cederström as a engineer at Södertälje Werkstäder. He moved with Cederström to Nordisk Aviatik in Stockholm.

 Short history for Tord K:son Ångström. Cooperated with Enoch Thulin. Constructed the Thulin motorcycle. Son for Knut Ångström, who in turn was son of Anders Ångström who invented the Ångström Measure. What a heritage!!

Nieuport. French fighter. 
Tere was on pioneer in Arboga. Carl Richard Nyberg 1858 - 1939. The inventor of blowlamp. This gave him money to try building an airplane. The Fly 1902. Note don't mix him with Carl Nyrop in Landskrona, who worked with Enoch Thulin at the same time. Also with air planes. Robot museum. Ref. 1
