In this video, Maker B walks us through the process of building a small gasoline engine in just 15 minutes but the actual work time reportedly was at least 1000 hours. This is an amazing accomplishment, and the engine seems to run quite well. Many viewers were impressed by the speed and quality of Maker B’s build. In this article, we will take a closer look at the video and discuss some aspects of Maker B’s approach.
One of the things that impressed me the most about this video was Maker B’s use of high-quality components. The engine itself is very well made, and the surrounding tools and equipment are also top-notch. This attention to detail is evident in every step of the build, from start to finish. It’s clear that a lot of thought and effort went into this project, and the end result is a high-quality engine that seems to work perfectly.
An unparalleled example of maker goodness
In the video we can see him working on the piston and connecting rod, as well as the gear and valve. He shows us how the crankshaft and camshaft were made, as well as the engine block itself, the cylinder head, carburetor, flywheel, and how everything was then assembled. As a viewer, I felt a lot of satisfaction seeing how this engine started for the first time and I’m sure that Maker B was much more touched by it than myself even.
This is a curious project but a loveable project which is not only informative but also entertaining. I’m confident that the DIY and maker community appreciated this production a lot. Maybe for the next project, we’ll see an electric engine or maybe what this tiny gasoline engine was being used for later on.
