A voltage of 1V (volt) across a conductor with a resistance of 1W (ohm) causes a current of 1A (amp) to flow through it.
Used for lubrication.

Heat the steel to 770 to 800°C and soak at this temperature for 3/4 hour
per inch (25.4mm) thickness of material. Quench in a bath of oil inserting the heaviest
end of the piece first (this way relieves stresses and reduces distortion). Further heat treatment
at 100 to 120°C for a short while and then allowing the piece to cool naturally in air will reduce the
stresses further and the possibility of cracking. Note: the higher the carbon content the
lower the hardening temperature of steel.
This describes a particular valve system whereby the cylinder oscillates versus crank angle and this motion versus the main body of the engine forms the inlet and exhaust valve motion. This is a very simple way to form the valves, but does limit the valve timing adjustment.
The building of an oscillating engine.
