Homemade Air Engines that Work

Before I sold my compressed air shop to the mother of a 13-year-old boy who wanted to give my engines and spare parts to her son for his birthday, I managed to document pretty well what I had done to construct these homemade air engines.  Detailed drawings in .pdf & .dwg format, as well as descriptions.  A video is available showing the engines in operation.

torquerack engine 2 stage air engine made from 2 stage compressor
The torquerack engine (ABOVE) was a non-expansive air engine using rack-and-pinion gears as a crankshaft substitute. Machine shop cost was absolute zero. The Littlefoot Engine (LEFT) was a two-stage air engine with a 30% cutoff, made by converting an old two stage compressor. Everything was done with hand tools except making new grooves for the new piston rings.
