Today is a little overwhelming, so I'm just going with the theme and providing you with pointers to ridiculously detailed websites. You can spend hours on just one!

The Brass Instruments page at the University of Toronto shows all sorts of measuring devices and things that go ping. The introduction also has a detailed bibliography.

I first tripped over Because We Can due to their steampunk office design, but then I saw their spooky table and chairs and their futuristic deco lobby design and now I'm fascinated with everything they do.

The Royal De Luxe brought you the amazing mechanical elephant in 2006, and there's a Flickr pool full of photos of their breathtaking work.

There's a long article about steampunk in Bizarre Magazine, with illustrations and all.

And lastly, if you're in southern California, try to make it out to see the stage adaptation of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine!
