I lifted this from the MTFCI forum. This is about as neat as a mechanical miniature can get. I wanted all on the MTFCA forum to have the opportunity to see it.

Whoa! That's one sweet piece of miniature engineering and construction. Couldn't take my eyes off the entire process.

I wonder if he's got or interested in doing a miniature Model T engine?

Awesome, impressive. People tell me I have patience to restore a Model T, but that kind of work is in a different league.

That is an amazing piece of work, with over 1,200 hours in its construction! But he can't drive it. :-( I'll stick to Model T's.

Not to denigrate this in any way, because the workmanship is phenomenal, but I can't help noticing that the engine must be running on air pressure from the line going into the "intake". I can see no evidence of spark plugs or any sort of ignition system, nor does there seem to be any visible evidence of combustion in the exhaust. Just an observation, as I said, because being a machinist myself I cannot imagine ever having the patience and dedication to make something like this!

A friend of mine told me this fellow has made a few other motors, a flathead and a small block that resembles a chevy.

I think it might be a diesel running on ether.
