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:

Step 1: First draft
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
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.
