    I really enjoyed putting the engine together but expected fuel with the model kit . Had to wait until I could obtain some fuel. No big deal . A very small gasket made the difference between running and not running. Very fast and fun after getting it started. Had to make one gasket by buying gasket material from the hardware. Had a little trouble lining up the piston parallel . All of these things were resolved. Great little steam engine. I think it’s an excellent educational tool.

    Runs vigorously with a full head of steam, January 11, 2015

    This is a great way to teach young people how steam engines work with simplicity.
    The engine arrived on time and all pieces were accounted for. (There are two items in the kit left over that I could not identify).
    The engine worked well after making a few adjustments to the piston rod to the flywheel. For boiler fire I used heat tablets (for small camp stoves) which worked perfectly. Probably best to mount the base on a piece of plywood as this thing runs vigorously with a full head of steam. The vibrations cause it to move around as it runs. I am throughly satisfied with my new steam engine. Thanks
