Piston and Flywheel

Piston and Flywheel

from 19.99

This simple mechanism illustrates the relationship between the piston and the flywheel in a steam engine (or any other simple piston engine). The crank arm and connecting rods translate circular motion of the flywheel into reciprocal (back-and-forth) motion of the piston.

This is a high-quality model, made from laser-cut clear and colored acrylic. You can make it spin by pushing and pulling on the piston with just the right rhythm. The kit includes everything you need, even a mini-screwdriver. Assembly time is around 10-15 minutes.
