A Do-It-Yourself Model Steam Engine
An American tradition, this solid brass and nickel plated steam engine is perfect for learning more about mechanical energy, motion and the way "things work".
The steam engine runs on steam pressure made by heating water in a boiler just as water is boiled in a tea kettle. In the early 1700's, the first practical steam engines were built to pump water. Over the years, though, steam engines were used to operate many other types of equipment.
This fully-assembled Jensen Steam Engine is a great first engine! It is equipped with seamless brass silver soldered boilers, deluxe 3" power take off flywheel, safety valve, whistle & throttle valve, nickel plated finish engine and boiler, water level gauge, custom lube oil, filling funnel, dry fuel for 1 hour running time (except electrics) and operator's manual.
Includes pop valve, whistle and throttle. (Uses Esbit Dry Fuel Tablets)
