Model Steam Engine full size / steampunk design

She said, just look at that little steampunk thing a ma jig,,, full size model steam engine built on a Sherline Lathe with a vertical milling column attachment,, (this lathe was sold by Sears, craftsman model #527.2142,, 3″ metal lathe), original freelance design, no blueprint needed, oil ‘er up, for low rpm use low air pressure and she off and running,,(runs much better on live steam), it’s a beam style,,, not a walking beam,, often referred to as a wobbler due to it’s oscillating cylinder, the counter balance on the crankshaft makes for a smooth running engine, subscribe, leave a comment, pass it on, Oh!, What?, the missing monkey has been found and returned to the nail he has called home for the past few years,, and all is well here on the east coast of Arkansas, shopdogsam

  3. I am mesmerized by watching your handy dandy gadgets operate.How about a steampunk powered spinning wheel.No blueprint needed. Your monkey was just showing you. What goes up must come down.You are truly a renaissance man in your own mind.I am glad I am not the only one that has mined movies. From the south shore of the Missouri.
