this is a very fast and easy weekend project.
I need at least 3 hours for construction and work.
Some month ago I buy a Steam-generator for ships and trains in a model making store.
I couldn’t find something where I can fit it in and put it a shelf.
Now I got some old brass parts from Oil lamps.
During disassemble all parts I found one part that looks like a smoke pipe.
I think about a desktop steamer or a portable steam generator.
It must be built lightweight and very small after some minutes I got this idea and start with this project.
- Brass Oil Lamp or only the part to adjust the fire
- Steam-generator for 5-6 Volts is the best choice
- Wires in different diameter
- Battery Pack 4.8 Volts with 2/3 AAA cells for model making
- A switch with metal flap
- A plastic corner
I cut it away with a Dremel.
Then I unscrew the fire regulator and the nice ornamental moulding.
You will notice that you can turn the direction of the fire adjustor and you are able to fit it backwards.
If you fit it in this direction you get a nice Smoke pipe with Ornamental basement.
