I have only seen one in person myself.
I believe Maxwell got it at the Leuthke auction.


Thanks for this, Charlie. I had never seen one running before.

There is one available right now by auction November 30th.
This one has a belt drive instead of the gear drive in Charlie's video. I am not aware of which came earlier but I rather suspect the lithograph base in the video suggests an earlier version?

Any if any one wants to drain their wallet or just drool like me....

Such a smooth running engine, I could watch it all day long. Almost hypnotizing. Love the video Charlie.
