Great DIY project!


I purchased the pendant and love it! It was easy to assemble, but it did take a little bit of time to get the gears adjusted properly. Overall a great product.More > < Less


Great toy!


Love the gear desk toy! It was fun to stain and very straightforward to assemble. I ended up ordering the heart and nautilus pendants. Highly recommended!More > < Less


Fun Gadget /Be Careful with Screws


I bought this for my gadget-loving son for his 19th birthday. Here are his comments: "It's really cool and easy/fun to build. The onlyld. The only issue I've had is making sure the screws were loose enough so that it would work. It will probably loosen up over time but there's still a lot of friction. If I didn't take my time and be careful I could have glued it in place too tightly, and it wouldn't have worked."More > < Less


Cool Gadget!


I ordered this as a gift for my son (age 12) who's recently been intrigued by the whole Steam Punk genre. He and his Dad decided to stain the gears different wood shades before assembling the toy, which made the finished piece even more interesting.
One suggestion: the center screw that holds the whole piece together is a little too short. We purchased a slightly longer one, which allows the gears to turn much more easily.

Terrible. The hardware didn't fit, had to go get more screws. Never again.

About SteamyTech

Magic & Movement

SteamyTech brings the wide world of Steampunk to The Grommet. Inspired by the fantastical technologies in the works of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, this Sci Fi sub-genre is set against the smokestacks of the Industrial Revolution. In this world, anything is possible using steam engines, clockwork gears, and just the faintest hint of magic.

Greg and Lora Price, SteamyTech founders, first discovered Steampunk at a 2012 convention. They witnessed Steampunk’s role as major inspiration to the Maker Movement, spurring the creation of beautiful handmade items. But they wondered why most of the crafts had immovable gears.

The husband-wife team’s decorative designs are made in the USA with laser-cut pieces that incorporate functional gears that you can move. Their signature work is the “Aether Catcher,” a wondrous Steampunk device that simulates capturing the very essence of reality. Eight color-changing LED’s shine brightly through Steampunk inspired gears and designs, casting a luminous display in a dark room.

SteamyTech integrates whimsical designs and a hint of wonder into every finished piece and DIY kit they create. From start to finish, SteamyTech kits are imaginative, fun manifestations of the fantastical world of Steampunk.
