This video shows how to turn a discarded 2 cycle weed eater into a simple steam engine.  In the video I am using an air compressor, but later I created a very primitive boiler from a pressure canner and a safety valve. 

While this is a very easy project, it took me a long time to figure out a relatively safe way to produce steam.  If your going to attempt a project like this, please be aware that a steam explosion will most likely kill or main you, so use a certified boiler.
