In this video I fire up my Wilesco D10 stationary steam engine for the first time in 5 years or so. I have owned this one for about a decade or more, still runs beautifully! However, with the vibration it seems kinda loud on the ceramic tile it's sitting on...sorry about the poor audio lol. It is fueled by Esbit solid fuel tablets but you can use any solid fuel tablets. It has a tray for the fuel that slides in under the boiler to heat the water. RPM's are regulated by a centrifugal governor which is belt driven from the flywheel...a rather hypnotic device lol I plan to make a cell phone charger or something out of it so I might post a vid of that one day! :D please feel free to rate, comment, subscribe.
