Approximate Date: late 1990s
Owner: IndianaRog

Notes: This piece was one of just 15 made (another source says 30 made?). Turbine blade rides on ball bearings and reaches incredibly fast rpms. Ball boiler containing 15 cc of water will give a 4-5 minute run. 12 cc of denatured alcohol feed the burners beneath the ball...a common ratio of water to alcohol in all Karsten's ball style boilers.
