Description

This Twin Cylinder Steam Engine Kit has everything you need to make your own old school V-type steam engine. This kit is a great way to both learn about how steam engines work and brush up on your mechanics. It's perfect for makers, train enthusiasts, or a classroom demonstration for a lesson on James Watt. No batteries required for this kit, it uses a small flame and principles of gas expansion and contraction to create motion!

There's no English manual so this kit's a bit more challenging than the other Gakken kits. The pictures are fairly simple to follow, however, and the kit should only take a couple of hours to build. The Japanese Manual (with pictures) is here.

Gakken is a Japanese publishing company founded in 1946. Β In the 1970s, they began selling educational toys, books, magazines, and electronic kits. Β Their kits are known for their smart design and relative ease of use and have a large cult following both in Japan and the United States.
