Hi everybody, I am new to this forum but I was hoping someone might be able to help me?
I have recently built a rocket stove, it is an awesome piece of kit, when I stand back I see I have built a bit of steampunk potential!
It sort of looks steampunk already but I want to some real steam... steam gauges, release valves. moving parts and any other steampunk theme I can think of.
I don’t really know much about steampunk although I did did visit Omaru in South Island New Zealand last year!
So I am looking for ideas, especially if anyone knows about real steam?

Edit I am struggling to get any pictures up, I will try a video link...

It definitely has Steampunk potential. To post a picture you must upload the picture to an image hosting site first., outside of Brassgoggles.co.uk. Then take take the url (for example https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Di7uX8JW0AAwMvO.jpg). There is a button above that will place the URL between brackets with the img command, like so

Code:
[img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Di7uX8JW0AAwMvO.jpg[/img]

The result is :



Also, you can embed the video by removing the "s" in "https"  Sometimes you can also remove the "m." in "https://m.youtube.com/watch?v........." like so:

Code:
[url]https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lv464HjF_sk[/url]
http://youtube.com/watch?v=lv464HjF_sk

No brackets with commands necessary for that one (auto embedding). The end result is (you may not see the you tube image in an android mobile device but a desktop with Windows or Mac will show the embedded video) :

Rocket fire

By the way, welcome to the forum, Foxfish! The stove has a lot of potential, and I don't think I'd have to tell you (since you built it) that anything you put on it should take well to high temperature. The way shown in the picture it's already looking very Victorian, by itself, just one step removed from Wild West style camp stoves (with the smoke stack). Do you mean to add those pipes by means of brazing or welding? There's a number of forum members who have built items made from copper pipes - really it's worthwhile to go to your local hardware superstore and just look around for ideas. Often your inspiration will come after finding something interesting and building around that (a gauge for example).

Ok, I am not familiar with this forum format.
Yes the rocket fire does indeed get hot, much hotter than a standard stove!
I want to see moving parts and lots of steam with perhaps whistles going off once a certain temperature is reached...
As I live on a small island, I will need to buy most components on line but I looked on eBay only to see just how pensive steam valves etc can be!
