Watching the Kitchen Sink Engine Work

People view the Henry Ford kitchen sink engine.

In early May, five students accompanied Jim Hendrickson to the Henry Ford Museum to deliver the Kitchen Sink Engine. Since June, it has been running several times a day at Greenfield Village’s Bagely Avenue Workshop, a re-creation of the shed where Ford built the engine and the Quadricycle. “People gather around when they hear it,” said museum presenter Mary Finnan. “I’ve really had fun running it and telling people about it and the students who made it.”
