Jensen

AN AMERICAN TRADITION SINCE 1932
THE WORLD'S OLDEST AND AMERICA'S ONLY MANUFACTURER OF ITS KIND

Tom Jensen was the founder of Jensen Steam, he was born in Denmark in 1901. His first steam engine won a silver medal at the Denmark State Fair. In 1932 after immmigrating to the America he stated building steam engine models. Throughout their 77 year history, the "Jensen Steam Team" has always made the finest, ready-to-run, stationary model Steam Engines and miniature Power Generating Plants in the world.

They are the last remaining American manufacturer of these engines and they still use the original tooling, dies and hand craftsmanship. They also are in the same building where Tom Sr. started the business. Their attention to quality and detail makes these prized engines to own. Tom's son Tom Jr still runs the company today. The video at the bottom shows all four of these engines running.

This Jensen 20G was purchased new in 2009 and is a really nice smooth running engine. It is amazing how quickly it heats up with its imersion heater.

The Model # 20-G is the "Original" Brass & Cast Iron Engine and Power Plant from 1932. Since the founding of Jensen, each of these engines has been individually handcrafted by Mr. Jensen and his Son and factory tested to insure maximum performance. The 20G includes the model #15 AC generator and the signature lamp post, creating a fully functional power plant.
