Working Oscillating Steam Engine MKI
by cbabbage, published
I started first building a horizontal double action steam engine (you can see it in the background of the video link below,) but while working out some bugs on that one, I decided to knock this one out quickly and post it first.
You can see a video of it in action here youtube.com/watch?v=BIfqFAG5olU&feature=share
I will call this engine the Mark I, just in case I build an enhanced model down the line.

I made this and sanded down the contact surfices till they were smooth and oiled the berrings . I can run it just by blowing into the tube ... turned out great (hope oil doesnt eat abs lol) going to hook it up to some air duster and spin it up tomorrow and if that goes whell my dads air compressor till it breaks then ill see if i cant tweak the design .... really great design tho thank you!
Please refer to the assembly instruction PDF in the downloads to see how this engine works. Because the cylinder oscillates, The piston can be one piece. No need for a separate piston-connecting rod assembly.
