My goodness! It's a left-hand quenzing frobulator! I haven't seen one of those in years!

I'm a total sucker for cool-yet-functional-looking steampunk gadgets that actually work! Amazing job!

Even though quenzing to the right is less efficient, it's far cheaper to build them. Wink

I love this, but I have to know, did this start life as some sort of fuel filter?

 Thank you all for the positive feedback!!  Smiley

  I actually used for the main parts : A- Wheel bearing with hub
                                                     B - one half of a oil/water separator (for air compressor)
                                                     C - The outer shell of a hydraulic filter
                                                     D - Car thermostat, Water valve, and some loose bits and pieces
                                                        -Illuminated custom pressure gauge
                                                        - For the lighting I used 12 volt car lights, running on a 12 v power supply

A lovely mechanism and a credit to your quenzing skills!  Cheesy

I love the way all of the parts look like they belong as a single item; valves* tend to look a bit out of place, but not here- great finish!

It's fabulous!

I agree with Hektor though, maybe the valve should also be repainted to get a old metal look.

Oh, not quite- in this case I thought it looks fine; lots of others don't seem right.

I tried several models on the valve, but for this one the green one suits me the best  Grin
