This was a semester-long project from a Machine Design and Manufacturing class. Each piece, excluding one or two, was machined through the use of a manual mill, manual lathe, or Prototrak (or in some cases a combination of various machines).The engine runs on an external heat source. At its fastest, it can hit close to 1400 RPM when heated by a crème Brule torch; which is towards the faster range for similar engines from the class. The bedplate is similar to that of a body builder. To follow this theme, the base is meant to resemble a podium.
