Homemade Rat Steam Engine Live Steam
Know what a Rat Rod is? This is a Rat Steam Engine
My 12 year old Grandson with my help, made this out of some plumbing bits and pieces  ..... 4 hours in the workshop one day and 4 hours the next day.
It's all silver brazed except for the steam and exhaust inlet & outlet.
He learnt a lot and I had 8 hours of absolute bliss with him!
It's rough....but it goes!
