Another surprise was to find one of these artists making full scale replicas complete with moving parts and sound. Victor Williams creates replicas of Acadia 3 hp engines in his workshop in Bay Bulls. A series of spokes attached to the back of the flywheel hit against a small metal tab as the flywheel is manually turned. The result? The iconic tik-a-tok sound that could only come from a make and break engine.
