An incredible miniature V-12 engine


You have to watch this video!  Thanks again to Samuel for the information.




OPERATIONAL V-12 DIESEL ENGINE  THAT FITS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND.  
   
      This is not CNC technology; this  guy made everything at home on his lathe and drill press.  Took 1220 hours (a year and a half?) to make the 261 pieces.  Note the end-loaded crankshaft into the block (like an  Offy), 12 individual cylinder heads,  TINY    rods and pistons, dual "underhead" cams with pushrods to  rockers in the heads.  And, he did break-in using an  electric drill driving the crankshaft!  
   
      Even if you're not an engineer,  you'll love this!
