Steam Engine – Valveless Design PLANS

Build this simple steam engine from off the shelf parts without the need of an engine lathe!

This little steam engine is easy to build and has no valves. This substantially reduces the number of parts. The rocking cylinder is regulated by an intake and exhaust port in the firewall. You can operate the engine off of a compressor, where air simulates steam, and then use a simple pressure cooker with a 1/4″ copper feed and any fuel like wood to run the engine. Free power!!!!

Once you’ve built the valveless steam engine you can easily scale it up and even run a generator or pump at virtually no cost, running on wood or waste cooking or motor oil!

These plans include full scale drawings and templates so that you can easily make the steam engine. You’ll be so impressed with yourself when it starts for the first time!
