I have never made a flame licker engine and you have just sparked my interest and it will be put on the agenda after I ...

Re: My flame eater engine !

Absolutely Amazing Thanh. You have done a nice job on the machining work and I do love the flywheel. Was it easy to balance the flywheel after adding the spokes? Every time I try to make a spoke wheel, I end up throwing it away in frustration. I am now using aluminium pulleys as they are reasonably ...

Re: Water Pump Sterling Engine

The engine works well Thanh. I thought that I would try and put the video up on the forum, but it doesn't work due to the high KB's. The actual pump works probably a bit too fast, however, it pumps one hell of a lot of water. For a small amount of heat it works better than I predicted - Will be star...

Water Pump Sterling Engine

Have finalised my water pump Sterling Engine.
As this is my first video I have tried to put on the Forum, I just hope it works.
The piston is 38mm with a 38mm Stroke and has a lot of power with a small meths burner underneath.

Well!! That didn't work - So I have put up a picture instead.

Re: New to Stirling Engines...where to start?!

Hi Brooksbee - Nice to have you on the site. You will find it most enjoyable and challenging all at the same time. I see you do not gave much to start with, so your best bet is to build a soft drink can Sterling engine which you can download from the internet. This is how I first started many years ...

Re: Useful - According to everyone it is feasible ??

They did say that it will run on other fuels and they did mention wood pellets, which I guess would be the same as husks.
As for 20kW Thanh I have no idea how you could build one at his specifications.

Re: Useful - According to everyone it is feasible ??

Thanh you could look back at the last post of the 10kW model coming up for sale.
The 20kW is feasible, yes, but it would need to built well and be rather large. I think Ian brought this up on another post and explained all the difficulties that it would create from a backyard workshop.

Re: ITS GENIOUS™ - 10 kW portable CHP stirling

Now that is something else! A high kW output with such a small dimension.
Well done Guys. Looking forward to your video release.
