If you ever wanted a highly detailed and all metal mini V8 engine block that could fit in the palm of your hand then Mini V8 Engine Block is for you. Unlike traditional engine blocks which are cast, this tiny engine block is machined from billet aluminum rod on an advanced CNC mill-turn. Mini V8 Engine Block is scaled down from the V8 engine block pen holder model and modified to function as a stunning desktop, rear-view mirror, or office ornament.
Graduated in 2018 with my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Worked on DOD research projects (DARPA, US Army, etc) for a private engineering firm for a few years. Now I operate the most mechanically advanced private machine shop in Hawaii as a job shop (parts for observatories on Mauna Kea, UH Research parts that go to the bottom of the Mariana Trench) and making my own products.
What does it mean to back a project (pledge)?
When you back a project, you’re pre-ordering the product. That means you'll get it once it's produced. Besides getting the product itself, you're also joining a community. Follow along the production process, take part in important surveys and give the creator valuable feedback.
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a launchpad for creators to raise funds for the initial production of their invention. Backers (that's you!) can support the creator by pre-ordering the product at a discounted price.
How do I pledge?
In order to pledge, click that green button that says “Back this project”. You'll get to select your shipping country and choose your desired pledge level and reward.
Functions nicely as a rear view mirror ornament, a small gift, or a desktop decoration
