Gamma Beam

Post by SScandizzo » Thu Oct 12, 2006 3:53 pm

Hi Everyone,

Just dropped in to show off my newest engine.

http://www.stirlingengine.com/file-stor ... ion_id=258

It's a gamma type beam engine. It stands 7.5 inches high with a 3 inch flywheel and about 2cc volume. My most recent test runs clock it at about 700 rpm with the included oil lamp. Entirely brass and steel (except the power cylinder and piston which are glass), I built it by hand using only hand tools and a rotary tool (no lathe).

I'm still tuning it, so I anticipate getting even better runs in the near future. Let me know if you have any questions or comments!

-Stefan

If you are not part of the solution; you are part of the problem.
