Microscopic V12 engine - it works
« on: December 01, 2012, 08:27:39 AM »
See: www.wimp.com/tiniestengine
Now to build a paddler of matching size, to use it.
Shades of all of those sailing ships in bottles.

Hi Rodrick,
I used to teach engineering to college students and apprentices, but that build was magnificent if only I could do half of the machining and calculations to build that I would be very happy.

With all the downsizing in Formul1  this could be our future :o

I can't wait for the March 2013 when my 11th. F1 season starts, OK it starts more or less now because we build the first parts for the C32 our next Years car.

World's smallest straight 4: <www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyhQvbd60rE>
This one shows it running, but not under construction.
There are lots more related sidebar links, including the smallest V8:

nice substitute Merlin for my 1:24 spitfire model. But there is nothing like the sound of a Merlin, is there? I've seen 5 cyl radial  engines that run on air for tiny model airplanes--can't remember the guys name but there are fabulous.
