hello, hi from holland here, i'm frank, i'm very interested in the boards on this forum, to feed my hunger for knowledge about stirling engines, i am especialy curious for where people find all their parts and/or how to produce them, i haven't built one working yet, because i am waiting for some parts i ordered on ebay, but in the inbetween time for their arrival i can wonder around here a bit...

Hello Frank, we are still here, but things are a little quiet. I machine the parts for my Stirling Engines, The ones I have built range from a power cylinder bore of 10 mm to about 55 mm. Here is the smallest one, as usual (for me) it's my own design. The over all length is 170 mm, and the flywheel is 50 mm diameter.

Here's another type that is simple to make, and if you have a log burner it will sit on that and distribute the heat around the room

Hi everyone. I'm 51 this year and got my first introduction to stirling engines back in 1980 when I was a school kid. I was more interested in model steam engines back then and my good friend and mentor Les Warnett helped me learn the design and machining process. These days I have a very successful company manufacturing performance turbo manifolds for cars and trucks. As such, I have many big, beautiful CNC machines at my disposal and I have started working on a design for a hot air engine that should be very powerful for its size. I'm sure most of you believe that anything that could be thought of has already been tried but i think I might have the advantage of fresh eyes. My hope is to create a powerful generator that is fuel efficient and very quiet running. Cheers to all you fellow innovators and hot air engine enthusiasts.

Hi everyone! I'm a 32 year old former professional futures trader who just can't seem to get away from building things. I do have a passion for stirling engines, but have focused solely on ones that incorporate the rhombic drive. I'm also heavily involved in thermoacoustics, the standing wave type engines, just for the fact of their simplicity, reliability, and lack of moving parts/sliding seals.

Howdy . I've been lurking for years and would like to express my gratitude for the knowledge that forum members have shared . I will post something as soon as I make that transition from the vaporware in my head to some real world hardware (the tricky part :wink: ). Thanks again folks .
