Jensen Steam Engine has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
A post war jensen steam engine model 25 runs for the first time after replacing some of the gaskets and the sight glass tube. This engine was discovered in my grandparent's upstairs storage room.
How to run a Jensen 65 Steam Engine. My first How-to video. What did you guys think. More of these type videos to come.
more engines at www.indianarog.com This is an instructional video on basic prep of a Jensen steam engine before running, covers water used and two types of oil needed. Done especially for Noah!
Jensen Steam Engine Style #85. Fast little steam engine. There is also a Wilesco D6 with fire in the boiler building up steam and getting ready to run.
This is a Jensen Model 26 mini steam engine. You put water in the boiler and burn dry fuel to generate the steam. There are two valves, one for the whistle and another valve to control engine speed. This is really fun to goof with.
A rare Jensen 75 meths, not to be confused with the slide valve, solid fuel model 75 that is currently being produced. This is a 1950's model that was the first ever version of the model 70 engine, but instead of being electrically powered, it is powered by a methanol burner, the original burners are as rare as hens teeth, so i fabricated one from copper pipe, brass plate, and brass tubing. These were not built in large numbers, because Mr Jensen observed that 95% alcohol is very dangerous, especially because this was built as a child's toy. This is only Jensen steam engine from the factory to be made to use an Alcohol burner, and probably the only that ever will.
I put this litle amusement park together a few years ago. The engine is a Wilesco D20 that my grandparents brought back from Germany after one of their trips to Europe in the 1970's.
Here's a little Jensen vertical steam engine. Powered by electricity--shown under full steam. These were popular toys for young boys long before TV.
This is my brass boiler Jensen 45. Jensen also built these engines with steel boilers due to a materials shortage during the Korean War in the 1950's.
Here's my Jensen 65 steam engine. The 65 is Jensen's mid-sized "hobby line" offering, heated by solid fuel. This was my first steam engine purchase. It was VERY used when I found it on Ebay. I cleaned it up, replaced a few gaskets and lubed it up. Like all Jensen engines, it runs great! Enjoy the show!
THIS ENGINE WAS BUILT FROM TWO JENSEN 75'S
Jensen 25G steam engine powers a workshop instead of its usual generator.
Jensen 25G steam engine, first try under live steam since a full rebuild.
This is my Jensen Steam Engine mod. 75 powering up a Jensen Steam Workshop mod. 100 This particular set was sold by Jensen between 1963 and 1970. Production of the Jensen Workshop 100 ceased in 1983. From 1948 to 1950 it was mounted in a blue painted piece of plywood. From 1951 up to 1983 they changed color to a natural color plywood. "Nothing lights up the eyes of a youngster like seeing Grampa's old Jensen Steam Engine driving the wheels, belts and machine tools of a model # 100 workshop - Jensen Museum" Enjoy.
more engines at www.indianarog.com Here is a pair of Jensen 51 replicas built by me...the one on the left about 3+ years ago, the one on the right was just completed April 2009. I'm 99.99% sure there is not another video out there of TWO such engines running side by side. Only 27 original Jensen 51's were built by Jensen using their Jensen 50 as the core...I built two more reasonable facsimilies with added functionality. Originals had one lamp and one motor...these two have five lamps and one motor. They were fun to build, but these two will be it, NO interest on my part to build another.
This is my Jensen Model 25 stationary Steam engine. I used it to power a very rough model of a textile mill made out of knex and still in construction. (will put up a vid when it is done?). It was never done I destroyed it and built a Ferries Wheel instead see it at www.youtube.com
My Jensen steam engine running. The water is heated by an electric unit under the boiler.
My new Jensen #25 steam engines first run.
Here you can see that due to the small pulley, it peaked out at about 38 DC volts
In this vidoe you will see that the generator can past 30 DC volts. Being powered by a Wilesco D20 Please rate this video
Jensen 5 steam engine, with cast iron Jensen 15 generator, finished.
This is a modified Jensen 75 Steam Engine using a homemade alcohol burner to fire the boiler and drive a generator to light small bulbs. You will notice that the puke pink has been corrected with a more suitable flat black color and a new stack has been added that vents the steam more authentically.
This is a little demo of my 1930s Jensel model 25 steam engine, I found an old air pump and hooked it up to the steam engine, runs pretty well. This was found in my grandfathers basement and unfortunately the rest of the setup was long gone before I found it.
A Jensen style 5 antique stationary steam engine running.
My custom Jensen 70, hooked up to my fan/generator, powering both, my Lionel street light and my TinkerToy windmill. Simple to build and really kinda fun. Thanks for watching.
Here is my Jensen No.70 running on steam
My Jensen No.5 running on steam
Jensen 70, custom power generating steam engine. I really disliked this engine, when I first bought it. Now, many mods later, it's my favorite.
After sealing the crack on the cylinder the #25 is able to power the #75 well.
The #25 with the #15 generator. The drive band is too tight and too short otherwise it would work better. Also the PTO and pulley are the same size, which doesn't help either.
Here are my two electric Jensens, the Jensen #20 and #25
Short video clip of Jensen Model 55 operating
A new Jensen #20 Steam engine. It has the newer 660 watt immersion rod heater and runs very well. Takes little time to build steam and has quite a bit of power.
My Jensen 75 running on wood alcohol powering the Jensen 15 generator model.
JENSEN MODEL #65 TOY Steam engine. This was a Christmas present from my parents many many years ago. There is a PTO near the flywheel to drive accessories like a generator, saw mill type saw, compressor ...etc
I forgot I was filming when this was shot, so the camera just trails off for a while, but it returns don't worry :)
nice running steam engine
Here's the T90 I just got. Thought I'd shoot a quick overview of it and some running, since there doesn't seem to be much decent footage of this engine out there. For the money it's a decent model. Large half litre boiler, like the D22, but it lacks the drain valve. The base is also smaller, making it more compact than the D22. I'm firing it with my largest Forest Classics meths burner. I'm surprised that it maintained pressure so well considering how much steam it goes through. I was able to hold at a good 1.5bar indicated with the burner around peak output. It ran both the PMR and stepper generators just fine too. It's a little weird also to be running a steam engine and not slopping oil all over it: this unit needs no oil. The feet of the base have some cracks in them, but it does not affect the function of the unit, and considering it cost me a grand total of $180, I'm satisfied. It's no Jensen 95G in the looks department, but it's more within my means than a 95G is.
Here is a video showing my jensen model 65 running with the propane burner i built. The propane burner has since been modified because it caused far too much soot and was not very hot, that is the reason for the extremely slow running.
Jensen steam turbine #95G, mounted on a nitro blizzard chassis. Gas fired Cheddar boiler @ ~20psi opperating pressure. Clutch for forward and reverse, differentail brake system for skid steering. Check out www.crabfu.com for more info.
more engines at: www.indianarog.com Using a 1960's era Jensen model 50 steam engine as a starting point, I converted it to a replica of Jensen's top of the line "crown jewel". There are only 27 original 51's in the world (and now at least one replica)!
Jensen Steam Engine # 50, # 15D and Empire Ferris Wheel
more engines at: www.indianarog.com Like the Jensen #30 replica also displayed here, I built this one using the proper boiler, steam tube and engine that would have been used in an actual Jensen model #40 built in 1960. They were only made from 1960-1965, hence fairly rare. Wood and replica ID tag are new. Runs every bit as well as an original and looks better than most!
more engines at: www.indianarog.com Early '40's example of an Edison inspired miniature power plant run on steam. Lamp post can be seen lit as internal armature is rotated within the horseshoe shaped magnet surrounding it. The earliest style generator Jensen produced. All original condition, NO restoration by me or anyone else. Runs perfectly.
more engines at: www.indianarog.com Jensen made few accessories to accompany their line of toy steam engines, but what they made was durable and fun to watch run. This Model #100 is tethered to a Jensen #25 steam engine for motive power.
Very early and fine example of a Jensen Steam Engines Style #50 running on live steam.
Jensen Steam Turbine Engine Model # 95 G
See it Run, Raging Fire and Hot Steam, and a Whistle. This is an old Steam toy from the 60's or 70's. It was butchered-up when I got it. It was originaly a electric heated model but someone has modified it to burn solid fuel. It is a strong runner and fun to watch. ... (more)
LOOK FOR A NEW CLEARER BETTER VIDEO SOON! A 1936-38 Jensen steam engine (flywheels from a later models are used in this video) runs a small generator that puts out the 3VDC needed to run a Gameboy color. I found on the railroad tracks with Red in it and I wanted to see if I could power it with this engine. It didnt work when I found it but I took it all apart and cleaned & fixed it. Since I just found this, if the gameboy was damaged by a voltage spike or something it wasent a big loss.
