Cute Stirling engine kit
I had the great pleasure of building up a prototype kit of this cute little Stirling engine last weekend. Soon to be sold at www.bustedbricks.com It consists of laser cut parts that slot together with a little glue, the "boiler" consists of a travel sweet tin and the power piston is made from surgical glove which can be easily replaced when worn. It was extremely easy to put together except for perhaps the bending of the con-rods but Michael has designed a jig to make that much easier. I love the noise it makes and I think it certainly makes a tea light more interesting!
