Steampunk Impulse Engine Kinetic Sculpture

Dr. Boyer's Singularly Glorious Steampunk Impulse Engine Kinetic Sculpture
Do you remember when you were a kid, and every year dreaming that you would find a steam engine under the Christmas tree...and the disappointment because it was never there?

Well, here you go! This Steampunk Impulse Engine is not really powered by steam, nor even those difficult-to-find dilithium crystals many of the newer impulse engines use in their plasma conduits. This engine is powered by a constant force spring and will give a glorious kinetic show for about twenty minutes on a wind.

Here it is in motion:

The Steampunk Impulse Engine is designed to look like an old-tyme industrial steam engine. This wonderful and easy to build kinetic sculpture is designed as a tabletop mechanism, but because it sits flush along the back, it can also be mounted on a shelf, or to the wall by using brackets.

I love comments, but in order for me to have more time playing in my sawdust, I cannot respond to them here. If you have a technical question, please do not post it here, or I will have my wife answer it for me and her technical knowledge is highly suspect. For technical questions, check out the FAQ section of my website, or find my email link there. Mahalo and Aloha, Clayton
