Introduction: 12V Solenoid Engine - Video

About: no longer active.....

A sneak preview of a solenoid engine I am working on.  I have now reached the stage where the engine runs.  There is still allot of work to do including a proper base, better wiring, a governor and I plan to run the engine with a solar panel.

I plan to do a full instructable when I have completely finished with the project.

It is made from Aluminium scraps, bearings from a RC car and  parts scavenged from old computer drives and a video recorder, the engine uses a solenoid from an old telephone exchange

Thanks for looking
