I'm building that one right now. Matthias Wandel has a great website at www.woodgears.ca. I've been watching his site for years and really enjoy it.

I just completed my wood air engine build. What a fun little project. I have it powered by a vacuum cleaner.

Thumbs up Re: Wooden Air Engine Build

So my question is has anybody tried to make castings with the same parts and tried it has a metal version. I really do like the fact that they did it in with wood.

Here is 3 pictures of an engine made except for igniter points of wood or tree products. For springs he used rubber bands. It ran when first built but has since warped a bit. Built by Paul Gorrel the Crosby man at Mount Pleasant Old Threshers Show .
When I stuck my finger in the exhaust to see it there was residue, his son exclaimed he was going to put a mouse trap in there for all of us non believers.

There was a guy at jacktown, who had a wooden internal combustion engine. Ddnt run fast, and was hit & miss. he only ran it a few minutes at a time. main problem, he said, was the exhaust valves didnt last long.
