AstroMedia Steam Gyro

Reference 418.DKR

£9.49 VAT inc

The very first steam engine was a spinning copper ball, invented by Hero of Alexandria in the first century. This swimming spin top uses the same principle. A tea light (not included) heats the water in the copper spiral and recoil from the steam makes the Gyro spin.

Our Description

 Then the steam condenses and sucks fresh water into the pipe. This process is repeated several times per second as long as the candle burns.

A neat little model that fascinates young and old. Add a paper cylinder and turn it into a spinning buoy, a revolving lantern, etc.

The kit contains a cork plate (80 x 10 mm) with pre-drilled holes, a copper spiral with soft-annealed ends, and a bending tool. Construction time: 15 min.
