    Wood Steam Engine

    I've ran across something I'd love to make but can't find plans.

    Here are two youtube videos that show a single and double engine.

    This came from the Live Steam magazine. It was a three part article starting in the Nov/Dec 2000 issue.

    Anyone got some hot ideas???

    Looks like back issues aren't available - at least not thru their website - that far back. You might call them, though. Maybe they can dig some up.

    Can't help you with those specific models, but you could always start slightly ... smaller(?) ... with Matthias Wandels's plans for his


    Be careful - the other stuff on that site will suck you in for hours....

    Very cool. Looks like you could adapt the square to the round, but at least there are some plans there!

    Called them and hurray they had the back issues! Cost less than $20 and they should be here in a few days.
