Default Wobble Engine

I just wanted to pass on some pictures of a Glow engine I picked up some time ago that I bet No one has seen before. Actually, I hope some one has seen one since I would like to know more about how it works. What I can tell you about it is the fact that the 2 pistons look like a Bow Tie. As one rotates up, the other rotates down on the other side. As they Wobble up and down they turn the crank shaft.

I've never run it nor will I ever try to run it, although it did have some discoloration in the combustion area when I took it apart. As the pistons rotate up then down on each side of center they rotate a cam which then rotates the crank shaft. I would have to take it apart again to take better pictures to show what it does.

Neat looking engine. Why don't you fire it up?

I'm gonna take a stab at this one. It may be an orbital engine. Car manufactuers were tinkering with something like this. I believe they were called orbital engines. I would not run it also. It is neat and I would keep it as a converstion piece. I have never seen one so I would keep it as a colector engine.
