Not sure if anyone has posted a link to this engine or even seen it - just goes to show that you do not need the latest CNC gear even probably a lathe and mill to make a running engine, all credit to the builder, the valve and piston rod look to be made of wood as does the piston - where there's a will there's a way

Astounding! The piston must be self lubricating if the wood was made of lignum vitae and the very sloppy piston is running in the cylinder since the engine is a vacuum engine who need a leakfree piston in the cylinder. Still astounding!! The poor genious man showed all is possible with knife, handsaw and hand drill etc. The next engine is a gas engine made of wood? :D

All of the free energy and perpetual motion videos on youtube (that a lot of people fall for) are fake and I thought this might be another and somehow the builder had worked out a way to fit an electric motor. The piston does look to be a sloppy fit but then you don't know what is at the head of the piston possibly something wrapped around for a better fit.
