Default Air Powered V12

A lot of work, and some very precise machining. Very impressive:

Yeah, I saw this a couple days ago... pretty neat. I was hoping it would be an internal combustion engine, but compressed air is still cool. That tiny camshaft is a work of art.

Absolutely incredible, what a wonderful work of functioning art! '

But where on earth do people find the time to do this kind of thing!? LOL

I wonder what the RPM of that thing is. I made some single cylinder ones back in machining school days, they moved pretty good on their own. My own pride and joy, however, was a scratch-built Stirling hot air engine
