"Did someone say, Jensen?"... LOL

I'm an avid Jensen collector and I'm honored to sell new Jensen Steam Engines as a small Authorized Dealer. I started a tiny hobby/business called www.SteamEnginesUSA.com Basically to encourage awareness and grow local interest in steam toys. I feel young folks just don't realize these are still around but I hope to share steaming with them.

I have some close friends that are also collectors and very knowledgable. I've met a few more folks online and that brought me here to this form. I've been online for several years but just now joined.

I have several other full-time jobs. Afterall, we have to pay for these little treasures some how!  I currently work for the city and then run a local limousine business. Steam engines have become more of a hobby/obsession.

A few years ago I met two local men that are big collectors. I saw my first Jensen in action. I really like the craftsmanship that goes into them. Watching all the parts moving was hypnotic. It brought a smile to my face and enjoyment to my soul. So I bought one, then two, and so on.

My personal collection has now grown a bit out of control. You can find me on Ebay purging a few to turn around and buy more.

Since that time I've bought and sold over a hundred or maybe two hundred. I've lost count... lol
Currently, I have 30 or so. Today I tend to focus on collecting mint condition early Jensen versions.

My pride is a 2016 Jensen #50 Deluxe Power Plant. (#4 of 6)
Oz Steam Demon agreed to build me some chuff pots and a spectacular water tower to go with them. (He is amazing and probably the best at what he does....)

Ironically I am close friends with the owners of Jensen 50's #1 and #2 personally. They are my local steam mentors.

I love meeting new folks, buying, selling, collecting, and learning more about these awesome engines. I'm always hunting for unique or pristine Jensen's. Let me know if you have one or find one that is for sale. Even if I can't buy it I love seeing what's out there.

I have begun posting a few youtube videos and I plan to share more in the future.
Have a great day and keep on steaming!
It's a pleasure to be here.

Cheers!
