    About the project:

    All the parts of the engine were manufactured by students at South Adams / Area 18 Machine Trades, Berne, IN. The parts were designed and engineered by students using previously designed engines as a reference. Serial #1 is auctioned off at a monthly Machinist Group Meeting once all the engines are completed. Each student that helps manufacture the engine keeps two engines. One engine is for them to keep and the second is given to someone of the student’s choosing that helped them get their start in the mechanical trades.100% of all proceeds go towards scholarships and other activities of the Machinist Group of Northeast Indiana. (www.machinistgroup.org)


    Reasons for the project:

    1.       As a THANK YOU to the Machinist’s Group for all of their support through the years

    2.       To give the students a way to use their skills towards community service

    3.       Allow students to work as a team to accomplish a very large goal
