Cardboard kit for a fully functional steam engine: firing with 5 tea lights, power transmission with balancier.

Machine with a history

The invention of the steam engine is often attributed solely to the Scotsman James Watt (1736-1819), who received a patent for it in 1769. In fact, he invented the decisive improvements that helped the steam engine to triumph and thus gave the Industrial Revolution its sweeping momentum, but the first functioning and usable steam engine was invented as early as 1712 by the British Thomas Newcomen. And he, too, had forerunners, even if their designs did not find widespread use.

Cardboard + water = steam engine

Of course, the question arises whether a steam engine as a cardboard construction can exist at all, given the well-known incompatibility of paper, water and fire. The answer is at hand with this kit: Yes, and it works on the same principle as its great idols. This is made possible by some heat- and water-resistant materials that are installed at the critical points. They ensure that the steam does not come into contact with the cardboard from its creation in the boiler until its release into the atmosphere. Smart solutions eliminate potential dangers.

How it works

The boiler made of corrosion-resistant aluminium has a magnetic pressure relief valve, the fire from 5 tea lights is shielded by a galvanised wire grid and the steam is conducted through a closed hose and foil system and released into the atmosphere via a chimney. The power development remains modest, but so does the safety-relevant boiler pressure.

Important to know

Here, too, the steam gets 100° hot. That is why this steam engine, like everything else you could burn yourself on, is not a toy for unsupervised children.
