Pneumatic Engine Plans based on my concept of a combination Piston-Valve design and other air flow control methods.
Note: Plans are provided as a downloadable PDF files. Whenever possible my plans are designed to be attached directly to the material you are working on.
Bottle Boat Test Platform
by James Eckert
Plans for a compressed air bottle boat intended for testing of air engines. This 14 page set of Scoll Saw plans include Boat Platform, Air Hookup and Air Mount, 2 Props, Prop/Rudder Assembly, Cardan shaft/Universal Joint, Mount for Pentabello engine.Engine Plans sold separately Primary Tools:Scroll Saw, Drill Press
This small pneumatic engine is built on the piston valve design most of my other air engine use only smaller sharing a piston diameter with the Mini V8. Because of the radial configuration it is easier to build then the V8 but still difficult compared to the larger engines.
The Inline 4 Cylinder Pneumatic Engine. These plans use the same Piston-Valve design as my Radial air Engine in a different layout. The inline 4 could be doubled for a V8 configuration. Primary Tools: Band Saw, Scroll Saw, Drill Press
Radial Pneumatic Engine that runs on pressure, vacuum or both. These are the plans for the model engine in my YouTube Video "Rotary Air Engine" or "The Simplified Pneumatic Engine and Power System". Primary Tools: Band Saw, Scroll Saw, Drill Press
