Steam powered the world and it can power your next project too. 

In 1781 James Watt patented a steam engine that produced continuous rotary motion. Watt's ten-horsepower engines enabled a wide range of manufacturing machinery to be powered. The engines could be sited anywhere that water, coal or wood could be obtained. By 1883, engines that could provide 10,000hp had become possible. 

The stationary steam engine was a key component of the Industrial Revolution, allowing factories to locate engines where water power was unavailable. The atmospheric engines of Newcomen and Watt were large compared to the amount of power they produced, but high pressure steam engines were small and light enough to be applied to vehicles such as traction engines and railway locomotives.

Reciprocating piston type steam engines remained the dominant source of power until the early 20th century, when advances in the design of electric motors and internal combustion engines gradually resulted in the replacement of piston steam engines in commercial usage, and the ascendancy of steam turbines in power generation.

This fully functional steam engine system utilises fire lighters / solid alcohol fuel to boil the water to produce steam which in turn drives the piston to rotate the flywheel.

Features:
• Fully operational micro steam engine
• Full operational safety valve
• Manufactured from copper and Brass
• Utilises firelighters / solid alcohol fuel

Specs:
Length: 43mm
Width: 23mm
Height: 40mm
Weight: 48g

Note: Do not make contact with the micro engine while running due to the risk of scalding. The engine must also be cleaned after use.

This is the Microcosm M27 engine. For the money I was pleasantly surprised by this tiny engine. It is machined very well and assembled quite nicely.

It is about half the size of the Midwest Products steam engine, for those familiar with that one.

It turns over very smoothly and does not have any sloppy parts fit.

Hobby King has the best price for this engine.
