Retro Steam Tech Electromagnet Engine

Something I've had in my mind to build for a long time. This electromagnet engine is based on the same principle
as the Empire electromagnet engines. A rocking armature moves back and forth between two electromangnets.
Still quite a lot to do but it's coming on.

Video here.

Got the crank, conrod and power terminals made. Next job is the cam and leaf switches

Well here it is finished in it's first iteration! Which currently doesn't work. The magnets simply are not powerful enough.

Here is The Second Generation version. The electromagnets have been upgraded to 10kg lift ones. I also made a
new lighter flywheel for it.
