I'm not sure, they did not say. Here's the article with the comment. I would think that would damage the precision machine work, but what do I know. Another guy said they started them up w/compressed air at the place he worked. I am partial to the gunpowder method, personally. I'm all about the excitement, lol.

I can envision a starter like this that uses gunpowder. Of course it would have to be huge.

I did a search for gunpowder engine. There were a few attempts to make gunpowder engines in the 1800's and supposedly a few prototypes were built, but none survive.

Obviously, they weren't too successful or there would be some around.
