I have spent thousands of hours on this
Now the steam bug has got me :( :( :(


That is what you call warm stainless
It is based on a large Kamatsu earth mover  turbocharger
It will burn 5 litres per minute  :D :D :D :D

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

It occurs to me to ask how, in a go-kart race, you avoid barbecuing your opponents as you overtake them?
