Heinrici hot-air engines at work


Hi folks,
it's a little bit late for a Christmas tree but enjoy some moving devices driven by Heinrici hot-air engines. Among them a turntable to rotate Christmas trees. Most crazy hot-air powered device, however was the patented idea of a HL-type with mounted gramophone and a starter to fire small rockets.
All is documented in the volumes "comp-05" and "comp-07". For details just send an email.
