Hi, heres a wee bit about me. I have a 1326BH lathe(Taiwanese)and a vertical milling machine, a H/V bandsaw, a stick welder and LPG for brazing etc. The motors I build tend to be high temp, ranging from 5/8" bore, to 2", I am at the moment building number 15, its tobe fitted in a model boat hull about 2ft long, the motor is an unpressurised Gamma type, power piston 20mm dia X 12mm stroke.
I, v broken a 1/8w tap in an aluminium block, so I'm etching it out with an Alum solution, because its HSS its going to take quite a while. Ian S C

Hi all, another newbie ..

I'm a long time communications/electronics technician by trade, but actually far more interested in mechanical hobbies and general old skool stuff. I am active in small Ford car clubs here in Victoria, owning a couple old Ford Escorts, a MkI & II.

Learning a great deal from this forum and generally around the place on all things Stirling, and gathering bits and pieces to soon start my own version.

Although I made the mistake of letting my 10 year old son see an online Stirling video I was watching and he spent the whole weekend keenly cutting up Coke cans, making wire cranks and taping and siliconing parts together. Amusing that on Sunday night some family members (including a couple civil engineers) were trying to explain to him that you can't really make any sort of working engine out of tin cans. I winked at him and somehow kept him from arguing the point but now I really have to get one working for him and together we'll show those doubters!!

Anyway, I'll just step into the background and read on ..

Thanks in advance!!
GG.

Hello everyone.
I am a maritime engineer so I have the necessary understanding of engines.
I like all kinds of alternative power devices and I became very interested in Stirling and hope to build some in the future. For the moment I am just doing my homework.

:mrgreen: FNG Here, jack of all trades, master of none.. Well maybe a couple...

Found you guys looking for info on a sterling I saw on discovery channel, doing the leg work for an off grid home... Well the homes been easy - it's my garage that's the headache... Welders create headaches, and I'm not a big fan of engine driven...

Hi,
Thank you for having the forum. I'm an engineer but don't hold that against me. I worker my way through college as a factory electromechanic on swing an graveyard shifts. I understand the math behind the "get er done" and I know how to "get er done". Presently I'm learning to crawl on a "tin can" Stirling.

Hi - I've been threatening to build a Sterling engine for years & finally have the use to justify one - any info on regenerator design would be really useful - Thanks - Vic

Hi Everybody...
Just joined your forums to get a bit of info on Stirling Engines and potential applications. To date I have only purchased a Sunrunner and dish engine, and promptly thrashed it and rebuilt it.

I've got no training in this field, I am a IT tech so no help there..

Cheers guys...

Hi! I'm in the process of troubleshooting my first stirling, and I'm here for real (or so it seems...)

Hi All!
I just joined the forum and I'm eager to start building my first engine; what a treasure-trove of information on here!!! :) I thought I knew some things about Stirling engines, but since I've poked around this forum; I realize just how much I Didn't know... Thanks so much!!
