Coffee Mug or Christmas Engine
This Christmas themed coffee cup Stirling Engine is whimsical and fun to build. Less skill is required to build this engine than most of my other engines.To make it without rescaling the plans requires a Coffee Mug with straight sides and top inner diameter of about 3". Primary Tools:Scroll Saw, Drill Press
The Original Beer Bottle Engine. This Stirling engine has running on my wood stove every winter since 2010.
This Designs draw back is it utilizes an old computer heat sink not everyone will have a substitute for.
Primary Tools:Scroll Saw, Drill Press , Bottle Cutter, Scissors
Beer Bottle 2 Stirling Engine. In this design I merged several proven techniques from earlier designs with some new approaches, to create a very reliable engine. The main new approaches are a wooden support structure, wood air channels and bellows drive system. Primary Tools:Scroll Saw, Drill Press , Bottle Cutter
This well thought out engine works across a wide range of temperatures on a wood stove without stalling.
Includes plans for both the Engine and the stand.
Plans go along with the 7 part video series on YouTube by James Eckert, Making a Stirling Engine. The plans were developed in lock step with the videos. The intent was to come up with a simple yet interesting to watch Stirling engine made with readily available parts. Now includes custom candle stand.
