Patelo's miniature W32 engine

We are a digital magazine dedicated to vintage vehicles. However, today we will make an exception as we consider this news to be true - and therefore timeless - poetry.

José Manuel Hermo Barreiro, a mechanic from the Coruña town of Noia better known as Kick it, is the creator of wonders like this W32 to scale. And is that since he retired in 2003, he has invested much of his free time in the manufacture of incredible miniature direct injection engines animated by compressed air.

For the manufacture of the one that we bring to these electronic pages today, it has used about 850 pieces, 632 screws and around 2.500 hours of work. Small components, great effort. He has built more than ten micro-thrusters, which for him has meant some 15.000 total hours of work and undoubtedly the amazement and admiration of many enthusiasts.

For greater delight, his son Juan Manuel filmed in detail a year ago the entire assembly of a W18 engine with the intention of serving as inspiration for Vocational Training students; that future generations keep the love of craftsmanship and creation.

He edited the material into eight videos that we can't stop inviting you to watch clicking here.
