I have resisted commenting here, as quite frankly "Steampunk" isn't my thing.

Juergen certainly did a very creditable job on rehousing his transmitter, but, if I understand the Steampunk philosophy--some exposed runs of heavy bare wire or tube, and pseudo pipe fittings could be added. The ultimate would be an old smoke unit from a tinplate train, controlled by a push button (and probably another battery) would add to the spectator excitement.

Then again, I can recall times when I succeed in creating "real" smoke with radio gear--but the suggested system might be cheaper in the long run
