Bengs Fame Licker
« on: June 09, 2019, 05:35:53 am »
Hi Folks.
I'm wondering if anybody here has had any experience with the  Bengs Flame eater "The big Nick"
There is a few YouTube clips and it looks interesting (something different) but I have never built or owned one.
Any info would be appreciated.

I love mine. A bit pricey finished, but well worth it. I would not recommend building it yourself unless you are an experianced machinist. Flamelickers are one of the most difficult engines to build and actually getting them to run!

Hi crazydoug
Thank you for the video the engine certainly runs well, I have put one on my wish list for the future.

Gary if you ever buy the kit, please make another build thread like your Stuart Beam build :)

I bought a Bengs Danni kit and every time I go to start.......I put it back away in the cupboard.
