Great to see there will be new engines in his already great line of engines. It is a shame though, that he has no interest in making more of his earlier engines. There are a couple i missed that i would love to add to my collection, and they never show up "pre-owned" on ebay.

I think that shows how well they were made and liked by their owners  ;)

%The "noisemaker" is the one missing from my collection.
I believe this one belongs to Paul (Belugawhaleman). Roger had one as well, and a few other forum members as well.
I don't think I have ever seen one on ebay except when they were originally offered.

The Noisemaker is the only one I bought from Wolfgang, wish I would have picked up a few others...

Is he producing engines for sale again?

Watching the video, I was waiting for an explosion.

Looks like a cool set up.  Hearing protection definitely required.

Secondhand, so the seller probably doesn’t know who made it... I better pass as I’d be too tempted to stick my finger in it 😂

That's pretty darn cool!

I'm wearing ear protection when I run my DIY one now, the noise is unbelievably LOUD!
