Instructables
Hi everybody it took a long time of about some weeks to build this new project  but now I am proud to present the "Steampunked time traveling machine" to you.

Since I was  a young boy I am fascinated of the idea to create a time-machine like it was described by H.G. Wells.
Now as an old  Steampunk guy I picked up this idea again and created my own "machine" for time traveling.

This instructable is really extensive and I am sure that you will enjoy the following detailed steps beginning with an old boiler made of copper  and ending with a funky steampunked machine.

And here comes a short movie clip as a first impression:



Are you noesy? Then follow me and enjoy this project

Step 1: First draft

Picture of First draft
Some weeks ago I got an old boiler made of copper by fortune. After the first cleaning an polishing the idea of a steampunked time machine rose up in my mind.

So I went down the stairs to my steampunk labaoartory  (in german: Dampfkraftlabor) and developed a first draft in which way this funky fantasy time machine might could be constructed. 

You can see the result below.

 Some days later I made a second draft and started the project as you can see it here using a lot of other instructables  about eg copper welding, making a joule-thief, or working with a flash-module of a disposal camera.

The most fascinating aim to me was to run all these different lights  measure instruments and the sound module by using only one! 1.5 Volt battery. And it is unbelieveable it really works;-)))))))))))))

Step 2: Modifying of the old steam-boiler

After all elements had been chosen the boiler needs a lot of holes to keep the fittings and controls and instruments.
A lot of fittings had to be fixed by welding. So I took this instructable to learn how to do it.


To make the big holes I first drilled small holes, then cut the middle out with metal shears and finished with a file.

I dont think this will work properly. The helix for cooling yr high pressure plasma is not long enough. It might be fine now but one day you'll be getting a reflux in the main reactor and you are gonna be stuc in the pleistocene
Don't worry.. I thought of that and being the conscious kind of person that I am I went back in time a corrected the levels on the molecular bonds therefor the magnetics fields are not a requirement. Double layers of intracluster nucleosynthesis did the trick...thank you for your concern anyways.

dude, you screwed up the time space continuum and MH370 got sucked into the vortex

Don't worry. ..that mistake only occurred on "your" time line. . I will fix it, by this time tomorrow all time ripples will have disappeared.

and I probably will have forgotten it ever happened... because it that hasn't happened.
OMG I think time machines should be banned

Not to worry...I had already planned on that happening, it was actually my own doing and was not a vortex but a man-made-fluctuation on the nano quantum bridge to prevent two time lines from collapsing. ..
That explains a lot of things around here!

Hi junophr.....im deepak....plz contact me back....
Im from india.....i have some question on how to make it simple ...the time machine...
deepaksivaram16@gmail.com
Dear deepak,
Even if I wanted to help you I couldn't. You plan on going back in time and relive a past event. Time is like vessels that can be used only once. Also, you would encounter the older version of yourself. ..
Hello Junophor... I'm really confused !!if time line can only be used once then what is the relevance of a time travel....?
So that means a dimension of time can only be altered but not the human will to change...
Am I right.....or wring.....?plz specify..

Thanks to this my hot water heater will never be the same... I really should have experimented on a old one first.

so beautiful..
that's neat-!!
Dear friend
Awesome! Your time travelling machine is fantastic! Great artwork. Gratulation!

Junophor - Another truly amazing piece of steampunk art! But it does look like it will be a pain in the "brass" to keep shiny;-)

Where ever in time you do decide to travel with this wonderful invention, I just wouldn't recommend trying to get on a plane with it;-)

Should have built a still. Those are hard to come by. Nice work, but something practical would have been far better.
Holy smokes, this is brilliant!

You do such fantastic work!
Do you keep all these for yourself, or do you sell them? Just curious.
Excellent work again Junophor! Let me know what's happening in the year 2340?

EXCELLENT PROJECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do have an empty can from compact Illy coffee like these they use in coffeeshops...i will try to built it.....thanx
*tries to hum the theme song for Dr. Who*
Huh, oops... pardon me there!
I must say, that this project is indeed marvelous!
Though for the clock I would have been tempted to change it so either:
You could spin the hands fast, forward and backward,
change the hands to be more irregular
(like have one that points to like 5 minutes early,
or have them be all "wibbly wobbly timey wimey")
Other than those little additions, I must say this project is inspiring!
(I happen to have an old helium tank..and I've been trying to work out a way to simulate flames/fire decently...)
On a side note, I admit I haven't been on Instructables in a bit, but I was surprised by the new UI (User Interface), it looks good!
This looks way better then the one used in Lunopolis! Nice jobLove it!

Greetings my friend:
Great to see another project from you, now I think I need to make a make some kind of clock too.
Copper is a fun metal to polish isn't it...
Junophor (author)  longwinters2 years ago
Hi longwinters, dear friend

YES I am back again. Had a lot to do the last weeks.

Thanks for your nice comment. I agree with you: I love the shiny reflections of polished copper and brass and even the polishing itself is very satisfying;-))))))) By the way: You gave me the first intention with your copper instructable :-)))))

Greetings to the North 

I will write
Yours Aeon Junophor
