Portable time machine

Here’s a small steampunk time machine I built out from stuff lying around. The cool folding wooden box is an antique sewing machine kit. It needs a few modifications, and I’m looking to add some brass trim to the outside of the box. As with all scratch built objects, it’s a matter discovering the right pieces. I prefer to use genuine antique parts if I can.

  1. Next time I get stumped coming up with steampunk inventions for my writing, I’m coming back to this post. It’s a perfect blend of antiques with sci-fi. Have you built anything else steampunk-y?

    • I have a few things on my website – fictionscience.com – in the Personal Work section, if you count a rocket pack as steampunkish. I’ve got a few things in the works which I will post soon.
