See this item in our 2016 Main Catalog!763
The Stirling Engine was invented in 1816 and operates on hot air that alternately expands and contracts to drive two pistons connected to a flywheel. The air is heated by an alcohol burner and the greater the temperature differential, the faster the speed. This kit includes the castings and raw parts required, so you can machine everything yourself—a great project for the aspiring machinist! For those who don't want to machine their own parts, choose the H8102 pre-machined kit instead. The finished project measures 9-1/2"L x 4"W x 6-1/2"H and the base measures 12-1/4"L x 6-3/8"W. Hardware (nuts, screws and washers) not included. Provided plans use metric dimensions and call for making metric threads. Made in an ISO 9001 factory.
