Gábor Németh's wooden gasoline engine modelI'm Gábor Németh
I live in Hungary.
I work in manufacturing of wooden toy parts, mostly wood turnings. I read a lot on woodgears.ca and I got a feeling that I could build a machine made of wood. Because it is so technical, a gasoline engine was my choice.
The beech used for the cylinder and the piston was milled 15 years ago. Since then, I only carted it back and forth for years.
After the chain is completed and the chain tensioner is in place, precise adjustment of valves is made. I spent a lot of time with it and managed to fit in all. It was all good when I permanently fixed it the cams to the camshaft.
1" pitch roller chain planning, the links ash and white beech and the pins are also white beech.
I designed the transmission and reducing gears in the Gear template generator program. I cut them out with a scroll saw in 12mm thick birch plywood
The shafts were treated with paraffin it they easily rotate.
The engine took approximately 140 to 150 hours of work to build.
We mass produce wooden toy parts on automatic (LOCATELLI ARIETE 3) and semi-automatic (Hempel CH8) type machines. 4-50mm in diameter can produce parts up to 800 mm. We produce balls and rings especially.
