La máquina de vapor  La primera máquina de vapor la patentó Thomas Savery, un ingeniero militar inglés, en 1698. Sin embargo, no fue hasta 1712 cuando un herrero inglés, Thomas Newcomen, inventó el motor atmosférico usando un pistón, con el que la máquina de vapor fue usada comercialmente en una mina. Después de unas cinco décadas, James Watt creó una versión muy mejorada que fue fundamental para la Revolución Industrial. (En la imagen).

$37 Mike Savad - There's a good reason why guys in those days didn't have long hair. Everything was belt driven, your whole head could get stuck in one of those belts, and believe me, that will ruin your whole day. Nothing worse then getting your head stuck in the machinery. Then poor old Henry from maintenance, will need to use his "stick" to knock you down, and then he has to recalibrate the system... #savad #steampunk #machinist

12 Tilt Hammers in operation at Sanderson Brothers and Co., Attercliffe Forge and Rolling Mills Attercliffe, Sheffield. The picture shows the old-type hammers. These could be run by a number of waterwheels, but it is believed that this particular shop was powered by steam engine. In the foreground are 'scissors', used for cutting the bars.

OK this, this.. is an impressive thing..note the functional detail on the saddle/stirrups - someone did this pretty much all day long - look closely at the extreme left of the image and you can see the boots of the OSHA inspector who's just fainted.
