    Thanks for the kind words!

    I have added a bit to the blog post including the schematic for wiring it up and some build pics.

    I am adding a "working" steam power plant to it, and posting the build log over at the steampunk forum on BrassGoggles:

    Very retro look for the power source.
    Nobody will ever know what's inside :)

    Great job....especially on the 3 USB ports !

    I like it!

    I think it needs a pressure gauge (aka analog voltage gauge) :D

    Kinda like this:
