Homemade Steam Engine on ebay

I spotted this engine posted on ebay under the title "Homemade Steam Engine."  What I love about this is the simplicity of the components used.  It's so rough.  It's built out of scraps.  It's almost built from junk.  There's a certain charm to that.  It shows how simply a running engine can be built.  Nothing about this engine is outside the reach of the common man if he's willing to scrounge a little bit.  That really appeals to me.

And you can see it run here.
