Throwing monkeys and typewriters in the room along with the Wizard of Oz, Dark Side of the Moon, pop-rocks, cola and a map to the Bermuda Triangle.... This should be good!

Dirty Face Pics

This should be a picture of Steve tossing the mangled crank into the barely discernible KTM colored polygons (well, they were mostly circular) on the ground.


And here's a fellow rider who just came to an abrupt halt

Steam engine.
In my post about the Lot river I showed a canal lock and a railway bridge and wrote that I had more to say about that. That will be in two parts; firstly I will discuss steam engines and their place at the start of the Industrial Revolution then, in a second post, I will discuss steam locomotives. This is based on my visit to the Science Museum in London.
I am a mechanical engineer and this has a lot to do with my engineering hero, Richard Trevithick, who is hardly known. I will also address some common misconceptions about these two topics.

This engraving shows the first useful steam engine. It was designed and made by Thomas Newcomen in 1712; 24 years before the birth of James Watt yet Watt is popularly believed to be the inventor of the steam engine. The size of the person in the picture gives the scale of the machine. That he could have made such a huge machine first time out of the blocks amazes me. There had been nothing like this before besides a demonstration by Papin of steam condensing in a syringe. The steam cylinder was of brass 2,4 meters high by over half a meter in diameter; in other words much bigger than a person. Brass working was well established through the manufacture of cannons. These machines became widely used to pump water out of coal mines. Right from the start Newcomen lays down the design of a beam engine. This machine was so big that it requires a purpose built building. It requires a huge tree be cut and shaped for the massive rocking beam and that person sized pieces be attached to the end and shaped to circular arcs. A big boiler had to be designed and made plus the pipes, the pumps and valves to make it work. All of this with no previous machine like it to guide the inventor. In round numbers that was 300 years ago. Newcomen invented the true ‘steam’ engine. (I will explain below why steam is in ‘’)
