An attractive model which shows how our machinery used to be driven by steam.
It incorporates Watt's linkage, which enabled James Watt to make the steam locomotive.
This is a wonderful item and the perfect gift for any occasion.
Made from fully machined New Zealand Pine and Bamboo, both of which are from certifiably sustainable sources.
Assembled size is approximately: 21cm x 22cm x 13cm - 8.2" x 8.6" x 5.1"
This is a fascinating, ingenious, moving model. It is an art form in which you can appreciate the magic of mechanical action and a hobby and STEM educational item which helps to enhance the development of senses, problem-solving skills, enhance creativity, hand-eye coordination and improve concentration along with many other benefits.
In these safety conscious electronic times, most of the mechanisms we depend on are well hidden, so we never get to see how things work. By assembling the wooden cams, push rods, levers and cranks of this kit you begin to understand some of the building blocks of our mechanical world.
