Engineering A Minature 32 Cylinder Engine That Will Balance Pennies While Running, Is A True Work Of Modern Art

A perfectly balanced engine that pennies will not roll off of
To get something done fast, easy and cheap seems to be the modern approach to just about anything under the sun. Sadly, this lazy approach has become cancerous in so many areas, that finding anyone really putting a lot of care and effort into their work can be a daunting task. 

This is where a man by the name of José Manuel Hermo Barreiro walks into the picture and lets his work speak volumes. His work is a masters class in precision, patience and engineering and I can sit here for hours and watch this come to life over and over again. 

Where o where did all the craftsmen go...

Over 2500 custom machined parts to build the W32 Engine

When was the last time you pulled the valve covers on your engine and saw this many springs?
