 "Huff 'n Puff" designed by Philip Duclos

Single cylinder double acting horizonal steam engine.  1/4" bore X 1/4" stroke.
 
I finished this engine in late 2002.  It runs about 700rpm when I blow into the intake pipe.  I like carrying it around the engine shows and pulling out of my shirt pocket to show it.  A friend talks so much about it that I'm making one for him as a present, and three more.  I find it almost as easy to set up a holding fixture for most of the parts and make multiples.  The one picture shows the setup for profiling the cylinders on the 12 rotary table.
