Hammacher Schlemmer Internal Combustion Engine Kit Review

Thank You to Hammacher Schlemmer for providing me with their products free of charge in exchange for my honest review. 

I received the Internal Combustion Engine Kit to base my review. 

This kit is perfect for my 16 year old who takes Auto Mechanics. It enables young mechanics and auto enthusiasts to build and display a working 1/10 scale model of a four-cylinder internal combustion engine. He is one that loves to build! He enjoys puzzles and anything that keeps his hands occupied for long periods of time. It definitely makes them focus and pay close attention to detail which I think is crucial during this stage of his life. 

The kit has over 100 ABS plastic parts that fit seamlessly together using the included tools. The definitive auto repair reference since 1965, a Haynes Manual guides construction with complete, step-by-step instructions and vivid, clearly printed diagrams. 

A transparent cylinder block enables young mechanics to see how the connected parts work in concert to power a vehicle. Lubricated with small applications of vegetable oil, the engine operates using a small battery-powered electric motor (requires two AA batteries) which makes an ignition sound while firing the spark plugs; the valve sequence cycles, the pistons move, the shaft rotates, and the timing belt moves with the radiator fan belt. Each cylinder illuminates during the detonation cycle.

Overall we are extremely pleased with this product from Hammacher.com. They have SO many products to choose from on their website that you are sure to find something for everyone on your gift giving list! 

Buy It! You can purchase this kit directly from their site for $49.95! This will make the perfect gift for the young teen or auto enthusiast in your life.
