Introduction: Simplest Steam Engine

Hello everyone this is my first steam engine made using very simple parts like cardboard, disposable syringe, straw, pen end caps and bicycle spokes. Cannot hold the breadth for longer time.

How much economical can you make your engine? Here it is costs only about Rs.10. Blowed air through mouth thats why produces lower rpm use compressor(i dont have one) iam sure it will give good results. Hope you all like my engine and video. Took nearly 20minutes to make the engine.

Very ingenious!

So you take a syringe, attach the input end to a fastened flywheel, and the opposite end to an air source. Right? What's with the bolt in the cylinder? And this is not a wobbler (oscillater) engine, is it? Sorry, I'm having trouble figuring it out.

The bolt acts as the supporting part for the cylinder. This is an oscillating engine.

Oh! I see now. Thank you ganuganu!

I understand the air is what extends the piston. What returns it, the weight of the fly wheel

great thanks now to find my supplies and build. I also have small electric motors, which i want to hook the shaft up to the fly wheel and see if it can be used in reverse as a small alternator. see if it can be used to charge phones ect.

If you get your cell phone charged please call me ill be happy.. Just kidding.. Have fun in building one and dont forget to upload the video.

I will post it for sure. hopefully it works.
