Steam engines powered the industrial revolution and ushered in the modern era. The double acting engine was in use for over 150 years and powered everything from locomotives to sawmills. This working wooden kit accurately models how those engines functioned. From the piston and flywheel to the eccentric and sliding valve, all the components are there. No special tools or skills are required, and the kit can be completed in an afternoon.

Powered by air, it requires no fuel, flame, or battery. It can be powered by a vacuum cleaner, and air mattress inflator, or an air compressor. This kit includes over 30 precision cut parts from select birch plywood and comprehensive instructions. It features adaptors for a variety of air sources. (quick connect adaptor not included)
