Roland Gaucher's Bentley BR2

Roland recently came into the shop to share his hand machined scale model of a functioning Bentley BR2 rotary airplane engine. The work on this beautiful piece of machinery is absolutely staggering. It took him 2 years/1500 hours to produce the complete engine and the only thing he didn't make was a few of the nuts used. He even made the spark plugs! Talent like this always inspires me.
