Re: Stirling Engine driven vehicle

Re: Thinking of purchasing mill/Lathe

Hi,
Like Ian says : get the biggest you can afford, or have room for. You wont regret it.
I would consider buying a rotary table/tailstock and the Super X3 has a extra long table available to. It all depends on what your planing to do with it.

Re: Trying to make an Andy Ross B20

Hi, I had contact to with Andy. Last year he sent me plans of that B-20. They were all imperial, with his kind permission I redrew these plans to metric. I can send you a copy. I started working on that B-20 but did not finish it yet. Most of the parts are done. Still, a few more to make. This B-20 ...

Re: 3D printed stirling engine

I know off topic, sorry guys, still... Something I forgot to mention about these printers. Maybe, just maybe someone got interested... :wink: Cost for a selfmade 3D-printer, depending where you buy your hardware : between 300 and 400 € (400 to 450 USD). This printer will print objects about 190x190x...

Re: Stirling Powered Tractor and Paddle Boat

Nice, very nice indeed vamoose,

I like that buggy made by Mr. Malcolm Rowney a lot.

Re: Stirling engine as college project

Severin, I teach in a small technical school Duffel (Belgium). The kids I work with are age 14 to 18 years old. They all very much like to work on these projects. They all work in groups, not as individuals, and because of that they like working in 'my' workshop. In fact they look forward to it ever...
