Man builds miniature 12 cylinder engine. From Scratch. In spanish. Coolness.

Chas from Hague sent this link to me after reading my blog post linking to an “explosion engine video”

I work with high horsepower 16+ cylinder engines every day so this video spoke to my heart. I wont count this as a DIY because lets face it, you probably don’t have the Skillz.

No audio commentary. Just some nice classical music. Titles in Spanish but the translations are obvious even if you don’t speak a word. Especially if you know your engines.

Very cool. Even more so if you need to learn the Spanish names for engine components. I don’t. But memorized the lot anyway. I’m a loser. Its true.

    That’s a fantastic find. Thanks for posting it. Such incredible patience - and we didn’t even get to see the time and effort needed to machine and fabricate most of the parts. Just imagine the stress of having to machine that crank shaft!

    Anyway, it had me smiling all the way through. I hope you won’t mind me posting a link to your blog on the Something Surprising Facebook page and onto reddit.

    Thanks Plasma Engineer.

    You are right, if you love engines or engineering this is such a smile worthy clip.

    Links are welcome! It can be surprisingly hard to dig up other engineers on the internet. Help is always appreciated.
