MUST SEE!!! New Valved Steam powed weed eater engine Project!!!! update1


I made a cam shaft lobe out of wood and bolted it to the crankshaft of the engine. That operated a standard air/blow gun that shoots short bursts of air in to the cylinder. The mod has also givin the engine more than twice the power! the engine is currently running on compressed air will soon be running on 10-20psi of steam from my tripple propane tank boilers i made, i will be posting a video of the boilers when i get my fire box. im having a fire box made of mason (the form of rock) that will use wood or charcole to fire the boilers! also this summer im planning to make a double acting steam engine with a 1 1/4″ bore/ piston!

School Project Steam Engine / Dampfmaschine


Assembling of the steam engine is shown in the fourth quarter of the video. We built (well…assembled) steam engines as a school project in a class of children with german as a second language. The exercise shown – naming all the parts of this steam engine – is to train pronunciation (pronunciationwise German is quite difficult for some) The steam engine shown was first introduced by german company Kosmos somewhere around 1935 as a physics workshop (a box containing parts and instructions for a plethora of physics experiments). Kosmos still sells books, games and science workshops – but none as good as this one: They discontinued this particular set sometime in the seventies and spare parts are hard to get. There’s a vibrant market for these sets on german eBay though, and they sell for 30-40 € (search for “Kosmos Technikus Experimentierkasten”). Contact me if you want to build one of these, i can provide you with close up fotos, short explanation and a sketch of the steering valve (the rubber stopper and turning thingy). The music is “Dimokransa” by Mayra Andrade.
