Hielscher Mini Steam Engine Cottage

Hielscher Mini Steam Engine Cottage

Ref: HI-010098

The mini steam engine Cottage developed by Lutz Hielscher of Wuppertal is a highlight from the World’s smallest Steam Engines series. The water in the glass boiler is brought to boil by means of a tea light and the steam pressure thus generated powers the oscillating mini steam engine causing the flywheel to rotate.

A cottage is a little workshop. For example in the german area “Bergisches Land” have been located a lot of hammer and grinder cottages which were activated by water power. The water power has been replaced by small steam engines in 1800 to become independent of the water.
