    Pop Pop Steam Boat

    As the water heats it creates a thermo-syphon so cold water is drawn up from the intake. Ideally, the intake should be lower than the outflow which is located at the water level to create the putt putt. The coil serves as pointed out in the text as a boiler to generate the steam. Each coil gets the water hotter until it boils. In short heat rises and this creates the draw.

  • Thanks for a great instructable. You can also use form ply which is used in the construction industry. In Australia it has a black finish and as slippery as all get-out!! There was a doco on TV recently which showed making ply. The strength is in the glue rather than the timber and the glue is the same for all ply. I use seconds for all construction. It is half the price of marine ply and does the same thing. Marine ply uses a better quality veneer so when the board is cut there are no gaps that water can get into. I will be using your method of making our bench - Best I have seen online.

  • My understanding is that the cholesterol molecule is too big to be absorbed by the bowel. Cholesterol is made by the body and does things such as creates cell walls, transports hormones and does general cleaning. The problem is that low density lipoproteins (LDLs) which are made from solid animal fats are slugs and just sit, partying and trapping calcium to form plaques. On the other hand, the mono and poly-unsaturates form high density lipoproteins (HDLs)that are the good cholesterol which are the movers and shakers. You need both to survive BUT the LDL: HDL ratio must be over 1: 3.5. As you get older, you need more cholesterol to repair cells and keep things working as they should. I have never believed that any fat is bad for you it is just how the amount you consume or use. Hop…

I have never believed that any fat is bad for you it is just how the amount you consume or use. Hope this helps the discussion. Never stopped eating eggs or any fats but always try to eat a lot of fruit and vegetables. Fibre grabs fats and gets them out of the body.

  • Great activity. I have been using shaving cream for about 45 years and over that time have probably eaten my fair share. No ill effects yet. The egg has a leathery semi permeable membrane under the shell so it is unlikely that any of the actual soap will get through. The experts recon that you will eat 500g of washing up detergent over a lifetime so I would not be worried about the shaving soap. Alternately, dye uncooked eggs and the soap will wash off by the boiling action. Have just made some for the kids next door - thanks to our chooks. Will wait 20 minutes as suggested. Thanks, can hardly wait for 15 minutes more to go ;-)

    Waited 30 minutes with great results. Eggs can be rinse and gently dried. Fantastic fun. Wish we had kids to share making experience with.
