I Am Going STEAM-POWERED
Steam-Powered | Steam-Powered Today | Steam-Powered Laz

Posted on 07/22/2011 7:03:05 AM PDT by Lazamataz

I am going STEAM POWERED. The Jules-Verne-style universe looks so neat to me, all that brass and steam engines, that I've made a COMMITMENT to go ONE HUNDRED PERCENT steam-powered.

I still need a Steam Fork, a Steam Toothbrush, and a Steam Wristwatch.

Too bad that steam was only about 5% efficient.

In that case, I hope to see you in a couple of weeks at our annual Steam Show!

My son and I will be giving a demonstration on BTU output of different types of wood fuel.

Plenty of steam related goodies to check out!

Very fun, Laz!

This one though isn't that hard to figure out. Throw a coupla straps on it and it IS your steam-powered wristwatch, with a sweep second-hand!

Does anyone know of a steam device that also irons? It was brought up at a meeting today and I know I saw one for sale somewhere.

Ah, steam shows. Love em.

I’ll be attending 2 this year in Alexander, NY and Canandaigua, NY.

I am looking for as much information, drawings, specs. as possible for Rider and Rider-Ericsson Hot air engines.

I have watched just about every video on the web and searched high and low for drawings/specs for full size machines without success. I would like to fabricate one using a welded steel frame and tubing rather than castings.
