I'm new here and I'm a real person too.
I'm interested in putting a 100W-1000W Stirling engine on a Rocket Mass heater, probably pressurized with compressed air and probably all built inside a compressed air tank to generate electricity and make hot water. My degree is in Physics, and I used to run a CNC machine shop, so I understand the theory and some of the problems, but I still don't have any real world experience.

Hello all,
I am a mechanical engineering student and I am new to stirling engines. I would love to start tinkering around with some designs and have lots of questions.

Hello! I am here and I enjoy reading all the info about these chill little engines. Why engines though? We were always told that engines undergo irreversible conversion of some fuel whereas motors such as these convert heat to mechanical energy directly. Also does anyone here know a lot about rotary stirling engines?

I've only recently gotten the urge to build a sterling powered fan and while researching happened upon this site. I'am going to enjoy reading all that is here.

Dociron, have a look in my gallery, you will find a photo of my stove top fan, this would take three 3/16" x 2"or 3" UNF bolts to convert it to a motor requiring a burner under the hot end, 5 minutes work. The piston is 30 mm dia. and the stroke is 20 mm, the fan is 300 mm dia.
I think there will be some other ideas in other galleries. Ian S C

Hello fellow shed dwellers!
I'm working on getting my mini mill up to scratch but as soon as it's done I plan to make a Stirling engine.

I'm an engineering student, currently trying to create a wood fueled mCHP system based around a Stirling engine for my final project.

I've already learnt a lot from the forum and I'm sure you'll all be able to help me further.

Hi, I used to hang out on the SESUSA Yahoo group - any other 'old faces' on here?

Hi All,

Been lurking for a bit. :cool: Thought I would join up.

I work on the computer side of the house and thought I would start my membership off with this related topic.

Seems so obvious...now... Heat sinks get very hot!

Take care.

Hello I'm partially here but that is the best anyone ever gets from me. Half my mind is usually off onto my next project.
