The Fantastic Vacuum Engine
With a slight twist of the flywheel, the engine roars to life. The alcohol flame dances furiously and a lance of fire stabs through the rapidly working valve. The exhaust-like popping coupled with the clattering of the valve assembly causes a pleasant commotion that is music to the ears of those who enjoy the mechanical marvels of man. This is the exciting “Vacuum Engine” with a history that goes back to the early 1700s. It is the ultimate in craftsmanship, function, and beauty of design.
