Replica electric motor

One of my dad's hobbies was building small steam engines. In 1980 he built an engine that did not run on steam but electricity. It was a replica of the electric motor from Charles C. Page (1846). This engine mimics a steam engine with two pistons which have become electric coils.

This replica really works although the coils get very hot. I keep the replica safe on one of my shelves.


  1. Dat vraagt om een video van een lopende motor natuurlijk!!!

  2. Hé Erwin, jij ook hier?
    Ja da's wel een idee
