I made a video long ago from this little engine running.



The german text says something like, it runs best with the second boiler filling, its a wonder that its running at all!

One that I always had on my list and never bought.  

It is indeed a little marvel. I wonder how one can refill the glas boiler when it still is got? The unscrewing can not be done by hand and a heat protection glove would be to clumsy, wouldŽnt it?

I guess I have small hands because I can unscrew it with a glove just fine
