Flame Licker

It seems that sooner or later almost every model engine builder makes a vacuum, or fire eater engine. I'm no exception, so here is a picture of how it turned out. The visual exterior appearance is of my own doing, but the actual working mechanics were borrowed from Phillip Duclos.

Hi! I am a student at Texas State Technical College in Waco, TX. We are having to CNC parts to a model flicker engine at school. I wanted to know if there was a way you could advise me on how to approach making one. I am the only female in my certain class. As far as engines are concerned, I know little, but I do learn because I have to and don't mind getting dirty at all. With your experience I wanted to model something a little different than the others, but not too complex. I just wanted to know if there were certain limits that make a difference in how one would function, ie. like if I make the wheel too big or what dimensions seem more reasonable, especially me being a beginner. Can you plese email me if it isn't an inconvienience please. Thank you for your time
